On a rainy Sunday in the crowded Sportsmen’s cabin during the annual picnic for Cpl. Steve Bixler, USMC, Kevin Goff and his grandchild, along with an unidentified youngster, examine some of the display material about Steve’s short, heroic career. Even with the rain, the event was entirely satisfactory, and Sgt. Ben Grainger, USMC, Ret., who was in Fallujah when Steve was killed, gave a short, powerful talk about how the Marines are a second family to their members.
