569th "Topo Queen" Membership card -- some of you will surely remember wiping the rust off the tops of those old Miller cans, and listening to tunes while "shooting-it" with your buddies.... in our very own... but, alas... all too soon closed down 569th bar. It may have just been a quonset hut... but it was ours.

A Poem by John J. Phillips Jr.
The poem is based on the picture of the soldiers on the other side of the "WALL" that is in DC. The Pic with the soldiers in the past touching the praying hands of the modern survivor. The poem is based on the family that prays for those that are lost, and can be called SEMPER FI because we, as survivors, are always praying for those in the past. We are always faithful.
Our Thanks to: John J. Phillips Jr.
