Jim remembers his brother...
Theodore Janke was my brother and is sadly missed to this day. As the first in our
family to join the Marines, I feel somewhat responsible for his joining the Corps. I will
always remember his sacrifice as well as those of all others. I had the sad duty of
escorting my brothers body to our hometown. I have been told by members of his unit
that he died a hero and I can believe that as he was a Gung Ho Marine.
