Loving brother. Devoted Marine!
Earl Dale Jenkins Jr. was a loving son and brother who was so very proud of his opportunity to serve his country through the Marine Corp. When he joined the Marines he felt so honored to be able to do so. Although he had such a brief time in which to serve before his tragic accident, he did so with great anticipation which was evidenced by his act of volunteering for a mission to drop behind enemy lines to recover strategic equipment. Dale and his buddy died together when their parachutes became entangled during their drop to carry out this volunteer mission. His love for the Marines was demonstrated by his excited comment to me one day: "Today is my birthday." It was not August 4 (his birthday) and when I questioned him, he said "We are _ years old today." It was the anniversary of the founding of the Marine Corp. but to him it was like celebrating his own birthday. Earl Dale was a proud and dedicated Marine who was proud to serve his country!
