I don't know all the details other than last Saturday, Sgt Wilkes formerly of my unit November Battery 5/14 was killed in a traffic accident while riding his motorcycle. I'm ashamed to say I didn't know the man too well. But what I do know is he is and will always be a great Marine, a good man and he will dearly missed by all. He will always be a November Battery Marine. Semper Fi Sgt Wilkes.
This is a video [link]
that one of his Brother Marines made in his memory. Sgt Wilkes is the second Marine to appear in the video.
Tonight is a candlelight vigil for Sgt Wilkes in his town and sat will be his funeral.
