Spring green tints the fields across from the 1895 farmhouse in northern Carroll County where Elaine May Stem grew up - a different hue from her view a year ago. Last year, she was donning a flak jacket while serving as a sergeant major in the Marine Corps Reserve in a landscape of browns and grays, from the sands of Kuwait into dusty Iraq. A year-old photograph shows her seated in a folding chair in front of a missile bunker. "Not much green there," she said of the contrast between Carroll County and Al Kut, a town southeast of Baghdad.

BROOK PARK, Ohio -- Twice this week, Lt. Col. Kevin Rush donned his dress greens, drove to the home of a family that had just lost a Marine and made what he calls "that fateful walk up to the door." It doesn't take long for the family to discern the purpose of his visit. "The minute we ask them if we can come inside and have them sit down so we can talk to them, it starts to dawn on them that we're not there with happy news," said Rush, standing in his Marine khakis outside the Marine Reserve Center in Brook Park.

BROOK PARK, Ohio - Jimmy Dawes didn't need to explain why he was buying the plastic-wrapped bouquet. "You goin' over there?" a friend at Marc's supermarket asked Dawes as he picked up the flowers to honor his nephew and the 19 other Marines based here who were killed in Iraq this week. Both knew "there" was the old brick schoolhouse just down Smith Street that is home to the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marines, where scores of residents of this blue-collar suburb of Cleveland went yesterday to mourn members of the unit.

Forty-three years ago today they marched, sprinkled with loved ones' tears, out of the old training station at Fort McHenry. A band played "Now Is The Hour." The guys boarded dusty Pullmans at Locust Point and started a five-day journey to Camp Pendleton, Calif. They were all Baltimore boys, Marine reservists, many of them too young to have served in World War II, but certainly old enough, by Aug. 31, 1950, to be sent to a place called Korea by a president named Truman.At Pendleton, they were ordered to a lonely stretch of the reservation that had not been used since the big war. They opened abandoned Quonset huts in which, just a few years earlier, brother Marines had camped on their way to the Pacific.
