Retired United States Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Henry (Hank) Moss Green Jr, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 8, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas at 92 years young. Moss was born in Lewisburg, Tennessee on September 26, 1925. He moved to San Antonio and graduated from Brackenridge High School. In November 1943, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and served bravely in the Pacific Theater, including the Battles of Peleliu and Okinawa. He was awarded a Purple Heart for wounds sustained in Peleliu. After 20 years of courageous and honorable service, Moss retired from his beloved Marine Corps in July 1963 and gave an additional 10 years of service in the Marine Reserves. After re-settling in San Antonio after his military career, Moss went on to work at Southwest Research Institute in the Engineering and Materials Sciences Division and retired after 27 years as an Engineering Technologist on September 28, 1990. Moss loved and built all types of models including a massive train and village set, numerous working aircraft, and automobiles. Christmas was his favorite time of the year and our family tradition was to watch Griswold’s Christmas Vacation with everyone in their matching pajamas. He enjoyed the outdoors immensely and would often go camping, hiking, boating, fishing, hunting, and white water rafting. He was a devoted family man. Moss is survived by the love of his life and the person with whom he shared a story book marriage of 67 years, Mrs. Anna Belle Green; his children Patti (John), Hank, Debbie (Jim - deceased) and Jimmy (Pam); grandchildren Jason (Vanessa), Emily, Ashley (Johnnie), Shawn (Sandra), Moss (Kaitlynn), Silvia (Toby), Jonathan, Justin (Erin), Lindsay (Ryan), Rachel (Zach), Preston and Annaliese (Burton); and great grandchildren Thatch, Rueger, Ainsley, Myra, Annabelle, Adalynn, Juniper and Payton, as well as his beloved Min-Pin Zarah. He is preceded in death by his father Henry Moss Green Sr, mother Martha R. Green, and brother Frank Green. The Green family would like to extend a profound thank you to Dr. John Matlock and Nurse Cheri from Heart to Heart Hospice for their exceptional care and friendship to our family. Visitation will be held at Sunset Funeral Chapel on Thursday, March 29, 2018 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Funeral services will be at Stone Oak Presbyterian Church on Friday, March 30, 2018 at 10:00 am with interment to follow at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery at 1:45 pm.

My uncle, Carl L. Billnitzer, was an officer in the Marines who served with the 1st Marine Division in the Battle of Peleliu. I don't know if the two men met, but I did want to offer my condolences to his family. My uncle passed in 2009, but I have been contacted by another Marine's grandson about the group that was there during that horrific battle. I would imagine there is a celebration in Heaven of the men of the 1st Division. Siempre Fi!
