I received news late last night my best friend Michael Feeman a fellow Marine, classmate, and brother has passed away last night after a brutal battle
My Friend Mike,
Over the years Mike and I became close friends. It began back in 2007 after exiting the USMC in the local college smoke pit in the Lebanon HACC
campus, in the smoke pit. Cracking johnnie jokes and discussion about the marine corps it didn't take long we started becoming very good friends.
Shortly there after Michael and I learned our interests were similar and we had some of the same classes. My favorite was an English elective. It
wasn't long him and I were paired together as workshop partners in that class with Mrs. Weaver, we were told we were the biggest lot of cynics she
has ever had in her 40+ years of teaching. He had provided the class and i with hours of laughter. Mike to me has been a great influence I will always
admire him for his sharp intellect, dark humor, and even when he would harp on me like my dad (he was 23 years older then I). My best memories with
Mike will be with me forever, we had some good ones. For example booze hounding with Struppie in a hot wired ford pick up truck all the way down to
the in depth conversations regarding urban demographics and ww2 aviation, Mike loved World War two airplanes. Mike and I used to play COD Zombies
online alot and develop plans to do a multi day hike through the northern Pennsylvania mountains to bushcraft and appreciate the solitude and freedom
from society. We even did a dry run during hurricane force winds that flooded the Lebanon Valley back in 2012. Of course this ended up at the 901 bar
and grill. I am going to greatly miss my good buddy and value all the knowledge, advice, and insightful opinions he has shared with me over these
years. I loved my buddy like my brother and I hope he is at the NCO club in some cosmic USMC station. Good bye Mike Kilo 38 out!
Thank you ATS for listening
