Hi Ben, 
     I sure did visit your sites and did enjoy them and have a lot more to see on them. Ben, sometime back I made this award for Veterans as my way of thanking all of you. I would really like you to have it also. 

Hi Sandy, 
     Thanks for the Salute! The Drake family and vets in general appreciate your kindness towards them. I know I speak for Bobby Hingston also.

     I just finished "visiting" your "little" web site, "Family of Marines" ! Very impressive, INDEED!  I spent a long time on your pages, and you and your family have much to be PROUD of in your lives. I am humbled! 
     Please do me the HONOR of accepting our Regimental Veteran Appreciation 
Award. If anyone deserves it, your family does! 
     Danny L. Fisher, MSG(Ret), 6-29 FA, "CAN DO" 

I am the one humbled Danny. Thanks for the kind words and for your great site.

Thank You for again for sharing your very special family and the beautiful words in your E-Mail. I would like to present my Top Vet Site Award! 

Thanks Barbara for the nice words and the great award! I treasure it.

I'd be very happy if you accept this small but heart felt token of appreciation for a website that clearly shows a tremendous amount of Patriotism.  WELCOME HOME and job well done from one Marine to Another.

Roy, We sure appreciate the kind words. Your welcome home site should also be visited by all who served and I hope many do. Semper Fi

Staff Sergeant Drake:

What a wonderful honor to know that you have visited my United States Marine Corps Tribute website.

Thank you for the kind and gracious remarks left in my guestbook.

It is especially a privilege for me to have had you stand on "my Marine ground" in view of  your own family's great legacy in the Corps, and the OUTSTANDING website you have constructed to honor them.

Your site is perhaps the MOST UNIQUE United States Marine Corps site I have ever seen. I recognize and appreciate the care and effort to which you have gone to construct and maintain it. Thank you. Please accept my Semper Fidelis "award" as my gesture of saying "Oooooorrraahhh" to your fine accomplishment with the site. 

What a great honor it would have been for me to have marched beside you.

You have my utmost admiration and esteem.

Semper Fidelis!
