Making this applicable to Marines—active, discharged, retired, reserve, etc,—gives the word “chickensh!t” a whole new meaning!!!!!

Judge orders killer released on compassionate grounds\nRichard Keech, 89, was serving a life term for shooting his son-in-law to death in Long Beach in 1996. He suffers from dementia. The judge says there's no obvious benefit to his further imprisonment.\n\nBy Victoria Kim\n\n10:06 PM PDT, October 5, 2009\n\nIn a quiet residential neighborhood in Long Beach 13 years ago, Dick Keech fired four shots at his son-in-law, who lay face-down on a neighbor's lawn, bleeding from an earlier gunshot wound.\n\n"It's all over," he said later to a neighbor who ran out at the sound. "He won't bother anyone anymore."\n\nOn Monday, a Long Beach judge said he would grant Keech, 89, the compassion he did not show his 47-year-old son-in-law, Nick Candy, at the time of the killing in 1996. Judge William T. Garner ordered Keech, who was serving a life term for murder, released on grounds that he is medically incapacitated. The World War II veteran suffers from progressive dementia and an accompanying "sundowning" syndrome causing severe confusion, depression and terror, according to a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation report recommending his release. He has difficulty swallowing, spends most of his days confined to his bed or his geriatric chair, and is unable to do anything on his own, the report said.

TOM HENNESSY: Time to let prisoner, a WWII POW, go home to die

TOM HENNESSY: Time to let prisoner, a WWII POW, go home to die

Prisoner Richard Keech, shown during his 1997 trial, should be allowed to go home to die with his family. (Press-Telegram file photo)

Nearing his 90th birthday, Richard Keech is confined to a medical unit at the High Desert State Prison in Susanville.

His family says he stays alive on Ensure, a nutritional drink, and on weekly letters sent from Long Beach by his wife, Kay. Prison staffers read the letters to her husband, whose sight is failing.

The 1997 trial of Keech made area headlines. A prisoner-of-war during World War II, the one-time Marine defended the murder of his son-in-law, calling it a consequence of post-traumatic stress syndrome brought on by his incarceration in a Japanese prison camp.

“My father is in prison because he killed my abusive husband to protect my son, my mother, and me,” his daughter Nancy said in a recent advertisement she ran in the Press-Telegram.

With the family trying for a compassionate discharge that would give their patriarch a brief stay at home, the ad sought letters of support from readers.

Re “Taps for Master Gunnery Sergeant John Marjanov, USMC”

I continue to receive, since 2002 now, e-mail from Marines who claim to have known the MGySgt; that he had been awarded the VC and others; that this is not so, etc.–in any event, I have never seen any confirmation or denial, official, semi-official regarding any of the above–if anyone has some good solid information on this I would like to be informed.

Some notes on marine corps history, politics,

Inter-service relations, etc.

By Gunny G.





SOME NOTES ON MARINE CORPS HISTORY, POLITICS, INTER-SERVICE RELATIONS, ETC.

"For your information the Marine Corps is the Navy's police force and as long as I am President that is what it will remain. They have a propaganda machine that is almost equal to Stalin's."

-President Harry S. Truman, 1950

How many times have we heard and read references and allusions made as to the insatiable desire of the Marines for publicity. Marines usually just shrug this off, deny or ignore it, or sometimes attempt to explain away this accusation. Too often we just look upon things of this nature assuming it to be just a case of professional jealousy, etc. But many of us may be unaware of certain facts relating to this particular controversy. Can this be something more than just simple inter-service rivalry? When did it begin? Under what circumstances? Is there any basis to this accusation?

Edit this entry.

  • I do not know how many total combat-related flag raisings (and others of note) there have been for the Corps.The following examples are those I have thus far found documented, listed here in random order. In some cases, some text is provided together with links to the source; but generally I have not attempted to directly support remarks and/or pictoral representations with direct links, as I would very much like to do. Why? Well, the Internet is not forever, and it has been my observation and experience that attempting to provide URLs/links to up-to-date websites is fruitless. To be sure, there are many really great websites out there--but they come and go as with the wind--here today, and gone tomorrow. For further information beyond what is found here, I recommend that the interested viewer simply use Google, and/or another search engine, to find those current sites to obtain information in addition to what is available here. From the book, Marine Corps Book Of Lists, Nofi, 1997... NINE NOTABLE PLACES WHERE MARINES HAVE RAISED OLD GLORY! 1.Fortress Derna, North Africa, 24 April, 1805 2.
