 DOMER, Glenn W.

Columbus Day will take on a double meaning for the Marine Reserve Center at Connellsville Airport Sunday, when a Connellsville Marine will be honored posthumously for helping to preserve the nation that Christopher Columbus discovered more than 450 years ago. The bronze star with combat distinguishing device will be presented to the widow of Lance Corporal Glenn W. Domer of Connellsville who was mortally wounded April 13 in Vietnam. The posthumously awarded medal will be presented to Mrs. Mary Jo Domer of Connellsville in ceremonies at 10 a.m. Sunday by Maj. Robert R. Perry, commander of Co. C, Sixth Motor Transport, U. S. Marine Corps reserve. Born in Connellsville on August 4, 1948, Domer enlisted in the Marines in April 1968, and was killed April 13, one year later, while conducting a one-man assault on a fortified enemy position in Quang Nam Province. Domer, according to the account described on the citation accompanying the medal, was taking part in Operation Muskogee Meadow when his unit, Co. H, Second Battalion, Fifth Marines, 1st Marine Division, came under intense enemy fire. The North Vietnamese Army company, occupying well entrenched positions, was hurling small arms and automatic weapons fire at the unit when Domer crawled toward one bunker, killing the Communists inside it and took that dead soldier's rifle. He continued on toward the second bunker and through more cconcentrated fire attempted to take it, too, but was mortally wounded. Domer's father, Leroy Domer is now a resident of Gary, Ind.  His mother is deceased.
