Memorial Day.

Remembering my older brother Roy Marks this Memorial Day. The picture is my brother and my nephew Jamie Marks. “Bigs” was small in stature but huge in heart. Red hair and chip on shoulder. He died of complications from “Agent Orange” poisoning from Nam.

Roy was in the Army and a 1st Air Calvary Division soldier. Roy survived 1 term of service in Korea and 2 terms in Viet Nam and received a Bronze Medal, Air Medal and Army Commendation Medal for 25 missions over hostile territory.
