On February 4th, Marine Corps Corporal Marvis Gibbs passed away in Pitt County Memorial Hospital in Greenville, North Carolina. At the time he was serving with Battery A, 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion, Marine Air Control Group 28 in Cherry Point. Marvis was a good friend of mine and I was surprised when I opened up today's newspaper and saw his face on the obituary page. I had not seen him since last summer when he returned from a tour in Okinawa. I've called around and have not been able to find out what happened to my friend. None of my buddies know what happened to our friend either. So I'm throwing this out there. If anyone knows anything about my friend's death, how or what he died from, any information that could help some grieving friends come to peace with the loss of a pal, it would be appreciated, thank you.
