Passing of WWII Raider Ken Merrill

Ken was a plank owner at 2nd Raider Bn and served under Evans Carlson during the Makin Island raid, Bouganville, Guadalcanal and 'Carlson's Long Patrol'. I had the honor of meeting "Mudhole" when we dedicated the Raids & Recon building at NAB Coronado to fallen Raiders in 2005. A great storyteller and a helluva lot of fun to just be around, his presence was known. His nickname Mudhole, was bestowed on him by his XO at the time, Captain Jimmie Roosevelt, FDR's son.

Rest in Peace Mudhole, I tip my cap and my glass to you. Gung Ho!
