I am the grandson of Howard Lee Mabie who is in this book. My mother's father. She has the flag with 48 stars on her wall that was raised on this Hill when we finally achieved it's dominance. I will inherit this flag someday as I was a Navy "Doc" assigned to the Marines in Okinawa and have visited this site. And I will cherish the flag for all of my life then pass it on to one of my sons. It is legend to those few of us who know of the 6th MARDIV's sacrifices. Semper Fidelis "Papa".

I'm not very familiar with the Battle for Sugar Loaf Hill, but where I'm from, a man who fought in this battle, saving the lives of 6 soldiers, was only a corporal. His name was Tom Crunk, a formally known Kennett, Missouri resident who died at the age of 84 this sunday. He was known throught the whole Tristate area and will be remembered greatly.
