On this page we can remember and honor those who have served. Here is the story of one hero which I am passing along from friend John G Tyree:

In remembrance of our fallen corpsmen brothers and sisters.

Cecil Ernest Daw (02 Aug 1945 - 25 June 1966)
Service # 5425319

Hospitalman, HN, E-3, United States Navy. H&S CO, 2nd Bn, 1st Marines, 1st MarDiv, III MAF. Cecil’s Home of record was Anacoco, Vernon Parish, Louisiana. He was born in Jacksonville, Duval County, Florida the Son of MSG U.S. Army, Reginald Otto Daw, WWII, Korea, Vietnam and Lillian D. Daw. He was the brother of Carolyn Marie Daw. Cecil was never married and had no known children. Cecil enlisted and entered into service with the United States Navy on 26 Sept 1963.

HN Daw died as a result of riffle fire while engaged with hostile forces in the vicinity of My Phu Hamlet 11 km east-northeast of Phong Dien during Operation Jay.

Operation JAY was a joint ARVN/USMC search and destroy mission in Thua Thien Province aimed at rooting out the 806th and 812th VC Main Force Battalions. The operation kicked off at 1015 25 June 1966.

The Marines were airlifted into two landing zones, the 2nd Bn, 4th Marines into LZ RAVEN to the north and the 1st Bn, 1st Marines into LZ SHRIKE to the south. On landing, both forces began to move toward the other with the intention of catching the VC in between.

Although both battalions encountered stiff resistance, 2/4 at Ap Chinh An and 1/2 at My Phu, the VC were forced to withdraw. At 1630 a medevac helicopter (UH-34D BuNo 148053, HMM-161) was brought down by ground fire; a platoon from 2/1 Marines was dispatched to the scene of the crash. In addition, the 2/1 Marines began to move from their blocking position toward the area where Fox and Hotel 2/4 were engaged, hoping to take the enemy positions from the rear.

By nightfall, Echo 2/4 was within sight of the 2/1 Marines, but the two units were separated by an area held by enemy forces. Fox and Hotel had forced the enemy to withdraw but had not been able to destroy the forces to their front. Rather than press a night engagement the Marines were halted in place. Air and artillery fire was maintained throught the night on the enemy-held areas. When the Marines began again at daybreak only scattered resistance was encountered - the VC apparently had been able to withdraw through the gap between Echo 2/4 and the 2/1 positions.

Thirty nine VC bodies were recovered from the battleground, and there was evidence that many more had been killed or wounded. Significant quantities of weapons, munitions, and supplies were captured. However, the actions on 25 June cost the lives of 17 Marines, five more were killed in action on the 26th, and on 27 June two Marines died of wounds received earlier.

HN Daw was 20 year’s of age at the time of his death. Cecil is buried at Barrancas National Cemetery, Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, Plot; Section 32, Site 11. He is remembered on the Vietnam Memorial Wall on Panel 08E, line 91. No other information could be found.

Thank you for your service to our nation, you will not be forgotten. May you Rest in Peace.

FATHER'S DAY, 2018: I am thinking of my Father today who passed many years ago, but who I remember daily in the work I do. From his early years as a dairy farmer's son, to his time in WW2 (Navy) to his years in Congress & International Humanitarian Service (which took our family overseas to South America)...he left his mark on my heart. Having his years suddenly cut short, I assured him before he passed, that I would carry on the mission of humanitarian action & I have & will continue to do so. I am grateful for things he taught me, such as how we are "One Family" throughout the planet, reaching beyond race, culture, and creed, yet he was a proud & patriotic American. He sent me on trips alone at times, to foreign lands where I could learn about different cultures & traditions. Having studied the innovations he participated in throughout his life, I know that he was a pioneer and a visionary in the area of self-help community development, space travel, and international diplomacy. He especially wanted to help farmers and vulnerable kids in the USA & overseas. For him, there were no strangers, only potential friends and partners. Sending you my thanks Daddy, to wherever you are. I thank God as well for both my parents, Leonard G. Wolf and Marilyn Wolf who prepared me for the things that God would have me do in this life, and one more note about "Father's Day," ...my mother would often have to be Mother and Father when my father was gone on his trips and especially when he passed while we were so young, so this is your day too Mother.

What can we do to keep a balance when life is full of travel, unexpected events, or huge projects that don't leave time for exercise or a lot of meal planning? Of course, this is a personal question each person has to make who is looking to feel good, especially on a time & money budget but here are a few things I do:

1. Follow a high protein, low carb plan & my carbs are made up of a small amount of fruit or other high fiber, natural foods such as oats or low carb protein bars. I felt a jump in energy after the first couple days on this.

2. Take a few hours each week to wash & prep veggies, fruits, and make a soup as well as cut up what will be steamed & then I bag it, so meal prep is quick by just grabbing this and that to make up a salad, pack a lunch or make a meal.

3. Use a free food & exercise tracker at Sparkpeople.com to stay on course for carbs & calories.

4. Workout in smaller increments of time (rather than long 1 hour sessions) & make sure I have some nutrition before & after. I alternate cardio with weights & focus on building a strong core for balance & for singing & speaking.

5. I finally have become willing to take a nap when needed instead of walking around exhausted. LOL

6. Add deep breathing & meditation in addition to prayers to listen for what leading the Spirit has.
