Men of Captain Bob Barrow’s company raised a small American flag over the highest rooftop upon the highest hill in Seoul–but even as it was tied into place the sound of firing down the hill attracted their attention … and the flag-raising became just a statement of fact, a minor incident in another day in Korea, September 1950.

Private Memorial Held for 12 Marines at MCBH

A private memorial was held this morning at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe for the 12 Marines who were killed in last week’s helicopter collision off Oahu’s North Shore. Officers of the Honolulu Police Department attended the memorial to pay their respects. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and the entire Marine ohana.

Honoring the 12 Marines killed in Hawaii:

The massive, multi-agency search for 12 Marines missing after two choppers collided off Oahu’s North Shore late Thursday has been suspended, with no survivors found.

Coast Guard Captain Jim Jenkins said underwater dive teams and sonar have found wreckage of the two helicopters on the sea floor, in about 325 feet of water.

To the families that are most affected by this, our prayers and our support are to them,“ he said.

A memorial for the Marines is set for Friday.

Never Forget them.
