Retired Marine could use a few prayers.

Recommended Posts

My father has been dealing with macular degeneration for over 6 years and has started getting much worse to the point he is just about blind now at 89.  He has been feeling run down and dizzy for a few months and just found out that is due to leukemia.  We don't know if it's going to be manageable or not yet.  He has always been a hard charging Marine and it is taking its' toll on his spirits so I sure would appreciate any support.  Thanks, Doug.

Prayers sent and Semper Fi to a fellow Marine.

Korean War Vet per chance?

My Dad, he died in 2016, would have turned 90 this summer and he was exactly as you describe your Dad.

 Marine Lt. Colonel David L. Althoff (Ret), Aviator of the Year 1968, recipient of 3 Silver Stars, father, community leader, passed away early this morning.  I want to thank all who offered a prayer or held a space for him, even if just for a second.  Semper Fi.

God bless you brother.  I was in your shoes a little over 1 year ago.  Honor him well.  Continued prayers for you and your family
