The Sons and Daughters Group Goals
Help Division members enjoy the benefits and camaraderie of their
organization today, and specifically ensure them a carefree time at
the annual reunions. The annual reunion in the cornerstone of Division
bonding. The Sons and Daughters Group will help Division officials
plan the reunion, then facilitate its execution. Thus, the veterans
can take their packs off at the event, and just enjoy the camaraderie
without the inevitable associated logistical-operational headaches.
Work with the Division Historian and other key personnel both within
and outside the Division to keep the history of the 6th Marine Division
burning bright for generations to come. At the Division's annual reunions,
we still have the unique, though perishable, opportunity to hear oral
history from war's survivors. Through their recollections--some wrenchingly
painful, others humorous--we hear the stories of their comrades who
perished on the battlefield, never to make it to a 6th Marine Division
Reunion. The men who did walk off the "killing fields" of
Okinawa, Guadalcanal, and other Pacific battlefields have sustained
the memories of fallen comrades for almost 60 years, and in so doing
epitomized the honor and commitment unique to Marines.
But now, the aging warriors voice concern over who will keep their
collective history alive when their last member has passed on. One
way to ensure the Division's memory continues is the engagement of
their offspring now. The Sons and Daughters Group can perpetuate Division
history through a sustained public awareness campaign using various
local and national-level conduits.
Sons, Daughters and all lineal descendants.
