Makin Island

A true story about 19 marines killed on an island in the South Pacific

Years later, a man who had been a teenager then, remembered where they were buried.

A C130 was sent with an honor guard to recover the deceased.

They discovered all 19 had been buried with their helmets on, rifles in their hands, in perfect condition.

The islanders had really done a wonderful job giving them respect as fallen warriors and heroes.

As they were loading the bodies, a voice from out of nowhere started singing “The Marine Hymn“……….

The voice was from a man who spoke no English but remembered a song the Marines taught him when they landed.

Makin Island……………Semper Fi
