 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
I am retired. I have a cemetery in Kansas City, Kansas; 120 acres,
80 years old.
I manage rental property, commercial and residential.

I am a spokesman for the National Combat Medical Memorial and Youth Education Center, for corpsmen and medics that were killed in combat saving the Marines. It will be built in the Kansas City area. If we raise enough money then we will have a youth education center attached that takes the young scouts and keeps them interested in serving in a uniform to do good for our country, until we can hand them off to the US military to finish out their service to this great country. But asking for help in raising funds is very hard for me. But we will do everything we can to do our part.

Inquire at my Email or mailing address about getting the limited edition "Medal of Honor" book. This beautiful book is a collector's item that you will want to add to your collection or give as a gift to someone who respects and appreciates the military. An autographed copy of this book can be obtained by making a tax deductible contribtution of $50 or more
to the Combat Medical Memorial and Youth Education Center.

We just published a new book called "DOC" sells for $35.00 you can get it at the Natl Combat Med Memorial. for a $25.00 donation. We also sell the Medal of Honor book for a donation of $50.00 This is a great collectors book.
Written by the MOH recipients themselves. Lots of photos for the marines. HA HA just kidding. We love them. Semper
Other Comments:
I spent a total of 35 years in the military, 5 years in the USNavy, 2 years of them in FMF with the 1st Bat 6th Marines and 3rd Bat 4th marines.

I then went into the USArmy, got a commission and 30 years later I retired 06 colonel. Most of that time was in the Reserves and or National Guard.

I am currently seeking help from friends and former marines to help reach the fund raising goals. It's so vitally important to train our youth to become good citizens and better leaders for tomorrow's challenges. Our country has many enemies, both foreign and domestic. If we don't take action now, who will and when will they get started? Failure is not an option.

Patriotism is nearly lost today and without proper guidance we cannot expect our youth to do any better job than we did, without inspiraton and guidance. Our war against complacency must be met with vengeance and patriotism through education.

Can the country count on your support?

If you feel the sense of urgency that we do, you can help us by spreading the word about our goals and please make your tax deductible contribution to:
