Archie was a fellow Marine and an active member of the Marine Corps League when his circumstances permitted it. He participated in many fund-raising events benefitting local children, the community he lived in and veterans across the nation. He was a kind and gentle soul who will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Semper Fidelis, Archie.
The North Oakland Marines, of the Marine Corps League, were saddened to learn of the passing of Archie. He served this Country with honor and promoted the values of our League in the same fashion. Our sympathies to his family and friends.
Don Roach, Commandant
