Randolph, Neb. Corporal, U.S. Marines

Memory: (submitted by wife Monica Moser): “Maurice was stationed at Camp Pendleton for basic training at San Diego and a year in Korea during intense combat. He served with many great men, some of whom we still hear from. He was proud to be a Marine, and the U.S. flag was so important to him. He loved the wonderful U.S.A. and was proud to serve our country. He had three brothers who also served and his youngest brother gave his life in Vietnam.
“Maurice passed away Feb. 4, 2011. We were married 59 years. I and our family were very proud of him, and he is truly missed.”
