Whenever I become aware that another Marine has answered his last muster, I am reminded by words in our Marines' Hymn that tells us, the streets of Heaven are guarded by United States Marines. Well, the Marines believe that our Corpsmen, who care for us and go into battle with us, also follow us to the streets of Heaven. CORPSMAN UP! You still have Marines to care for and important work to do, Doc. Fall in.

Gene Winne was one of three Christian men who have had a lifelong effect on me as a Christian man. It can be rightly said of him, "HE WAS A MAN OF GOD.

I'm very grateful of his exemplary life of service to God, God's people, God's creation, and to our country. It was an honor and blessing to have known him when I attended Ferndale Baptist School.
