In Memory of Our Great Uncle 1st SGT Jeroid Merle Tate, USMC (Devil Dog)

Died of his wounds received during the initial assault on Guam, he was transported back to his ship, where he succumbed 3 days later. May God have a place of eternity for my Uncle Jeroid Merle Tate, and the rest of his Devil Dogs and all the men and women who paid the ultimate price.

Uncle Jeroid, or as my father called him Uncle Jerry, was involved in many of the South Pacific campaigns before his life ended, he fought in the jungles of the South Pacific from island to island, he was war tested.

We proudly named our son after our Great Uncle, we wanted to name him with a meaningful name.

As a side note, his mother did not get the news of his passing for an entire month, news just moved slow back then.
