I knew the name sounded familiar, so I pulled No True Glory off my shelf for the first time in a long while and flipped back to the index and, sure enough, there was Doug Zembiec. My condolences, Marines. It sounds like he was a great leader.

Requiescat in pace.

An American Lion

Doug is the son of retired FBI Special Agent. I have met Doug on a couple of occasions, the normal funeral or special occasion, and we had a few beers and some conversation. Doug is very close friend of one of my best friends. Though we did not have time to get to know each other beyond the normal soldier conversation you knew right away he was an American warrior who allowed us to sleep comfortable at home while he kept our enemies at bay.



Though a young Marine Captain he took time out of his busy schedule to travel across country to visit our mutual Agent friend and mentor when our friend’s Dad passed over. That tells you something about his character. Keep Doug and his family in your prayers.

I did not know Maj. Zembiec personally, but my brother-in-law, Maj. Michael Martino, served under him in Echo 2/1 in Fallujah in 2004 as the company FAC. Michael spoke very highly of Doug saying how he was a true brave warrior and so unlike many of the other officers who were more content to stay behind the lines in the Jolan at the time.
Michael Martino was KIA in Nov 2005 while flying a Cobra near Ramadi. The Martino family was very sad to hear of Doug's death - Doug had said many nice things about Michael when he was killed and gave comfort to our family at that time. I'm sure that there are many Marines doing the same for Doug's family now. Losing a leader and warrior like Maj. Zembiec is a huge loss for the USMC. But he died doing something that was important and was his life.

I had the distinct pleasure to work with and around Maj. Zembiec over the course of about a year. He was one of America's greatest patriots...a true warrior. This one hits hard. Honestly, he was almost superhuman. Just to watch him workout was awe inspiring. His baby girl just turned one recently.

RIP Sir.

Rest in peace, Major Zembiec. Thank you for your service and for leading from the front.

There is a photo of his wife from his funeral on the front page of the Washington Post today. This one is more respectful.

I attended Doug's wake and funeral and the Boys at 8th & I did a great job laying him to rest. Hat's off to all of them.
