The book is a collection of memorial addresses that he has delivered to Marines and their families since 2004. The addresses were delivered during two important events each year: the Annual Divisional Birthday Celebration and the Annual National Reunion. Each message brings a portion of scripture to a national light, answering questions about its cultural, moral, and spiritual effects on America.
Dr. DeMarco’s words are an undeniable reflection of a life full of the blessings and leading of God. After graduating from a high school for orphans of veteran children, he entered the Marine Corp where he fought in the South Pacific during WWII. A revival meeting three years later introduced him to the Lord, and Brothers Beuttler and Swift, professors at Eastern Bible Institute (EBI), introduced him to the college where he would study the Word of God. He graduated from EBI in 1950.
For the next twenty years, he served as a pastor, then served twenty years in the Philadelphia schools, while earning his master’s and doctorate degrees in education. In 2003, he was appointed the National Chaplain of the Second Marine Division, a position he still holds to this day. He and his wife, Dorothy, now reside in Orlando, Fla.
Dr. DeMarco’s book is just one more way that he is still ministering to families today, instilling pride and encouragement into his “wounded warrior” Marines. “I’m now 86 years old,” Dr. DeMarco said, and “I thank the Lord every day that He is still using me for his honor and glory. I’m ministering to those who are coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, and it’s such a high honor that it humbles me.”
