Below is a description of the incident and a link to his Officer Down page. Please take the time to remember this American Hero by adding a reflection to his web page. And passing this on to others marines who served with us to do the same.

A SOLDIER’S STORY is an upcoming monthly issued magazine that was founded by Tracy White. A mother of one son and two daughters who received the shocking news that her only son would be enlisting into the Marine Corp. She was compelled to spearhead a magazine that would be a catalyst for those families affected by their loved ones being deployed for war. The magazine has opened its pages to all that wish to advertise, share their prayers, stories, photos, inspirational words, articles, journals, documentaries, announcements, poems, etc. to encourage their soldier, other families, as well as, other soldiers on the battlefield. It is our soldier’s that have chosen to give up THEIR FREEDOM for OUR FREEDOM. If you are a soldier, a family member of a soldier or have friends that may have soldiers on or off the battlefield, you are greatly encouraged to subscribe and share with us. The effects of a war can take a lifetime to heal. Sharing your experiences and being able to hear others experiences will be the climax of your healing breakthrough. It lets you know that you’re not alone. It encourages you that you can and will make it. You’ll eventually regain the will to live, thrive, conquer and succeed in life. It is our ultimate goal to eventually have the magazine shipped to soldiers serving all across the nation. Magazine Exclusive Sections • Fallen, but not forgotten • Featured Soldier (Front cover and three (3) inside full pages) • Children Sharing • New births • Happy Anniversary • Birthday Wishes Space still available for advertising, sharing, and subscribing We want the magazine to be a huge success. It is our prayer that you please consider. Please visit our website for more information: www.ttenterprises.net Click on A Soldier's Story icon. Enjoy your visit and please consider sharing, advertising and/or subscribing. Thank you and God Bless, Tracy White Magazine release date is October 1, 2007. "Every soldier and their family have a story to tell" Please assist us in getting the word out by informing your family, friends, conrads, etc. We look forward to you and your fellow soldiers sharing your stories with us.

I am not in the military and I certainly do not pretend to know what you may be going through. However, my cousin was once a part of the 1/3 Marines. While I no longer have to worry about how he is doing in Iraq, I do wonder about all of you left serving in the Middle East. This feels somewhat odd sending this note out to people I don't know, but it seems anymore that each day presents the troops with even more difficulty. Just know that there are those that still appreciate your service. I have the utmost respect for what you are doing. Each day you are asked to do what most would never be able to muster, and you do it without questioning (at least out loud) what has been asked of you. Wishing for your safe return.

Friends, The following report by Ed Ronan is shared with all concerning the Final Respects paid to Dennis Richardson: On Oct. 9th Dennis Richardson's family had Dennis laid out in his Marine Officer's Uniform (circa 1900) for viewing at the funeral home from 1500 to 1900. Many, many persons attended and Dennis was surrounded by family & friends, as well as hundreds of flowers sent from those who loved him. A wake was held at the embassy suites afterwards with the family & friends also attending until about 2330. Many funny stories were told and a TOAST was held high for Dennis as he would want. Dennis' funeral was held at 08:30 on Tuesday morning in his local church. About 300 attended. A Mass was held and prayers were offered. His casket was escorted from the church by his sons & family and was led out by a Piper playing "Amazing Grace". The burial was held at a beautiful cemetery in the foothills of Santiago Canyon, a very pretty place. The Marine Corps Color Ceremonial Unit was in FULL ATTENDANCE with buglers, firing squad (21 gun salute) and Flag Folding ceremony. Dennis was laid to rest at approx. 10:30. The internment was equally very well attended. Following the burial, the family held a brunch at a place Dennis loved. Luncheon was served and a slide show of all Dennis' friends & Family was shown. Many of the pictures shown were of Dennis at a lot of our re-unions and many were of 1st Bn, 3rd Marine & Bravo Co. friends & Family. Johnny Chavarria and his lady, Greg Phelps, and I represented 1/3 and Bravo Co. Susan Richardson and family wished to express their sincere gratitude to all the guys for all the flowers, cards and calls. She is very much aware of how much we all loved her Dennis. She asked me to say to you all "SEMPER FI". She really did say this and gave a very proper hand salute to you all from Dennis. That concluded the official ceremony. The following is a sentiment quoted from the back of Dennis' remembrance card and I believe it says it all: "GOD SAW YOU WERE GETTING TIRED AND A CURE WAS NOT TO BE. SO HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU, AND WHISPERED,"COME WITH ME". WITH TEARFUL EYES WE WATCHED YOU SUFFER AND SAW YOU FADE AWAY. ALTHOUGH WE LOVED YOU DEARLY, WE COULDN'T MAKE YOU STAY. A GOLDEN HEART STOPPED BEATING; HARD WORKING HANDS WERE PUT TO REST. GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS TO PROVE TO US, THAT HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST" Rest in peace Skipper

Friends, the loss we all feel is huge. I have heard from a few guys already and they share the same emptiness. That's due to the fact that although many years later, we are still comrades and still watching each other's back. It's amazing that although for the most part we just see each other once or twice a year, the bond remains strong. We've lost a leader and a friend. We will grieve for a while and then, by God's grace, we will be able to saddle up and move on to the next hill. Although we will never forget, I trust the feelings of loss will soon be replaced by a healthy recollection of the good times. We will miss you Skipper. It was a honor to serve with you in Vietnam and know you afterwards.
