PHOTO OF THE DAY: Semper Fi, Greg Bullis

A Marine Corps flag has been placed on the site of the former home of Greg Bullis and his family, where Greg, a former Marine, his son and mother died in the San Bruno fire.

The Gen. J.C. Breckinridge detachment of the Marine Corp League recently placed a Marine Corps flag on the property of the former Bullis family home in the Crestmoor neighborhood to honor , one of the eight victims of the 2010 PG&E pipeline explosion.

Sue Bullis, Greg's widow, asked the organization to provide the flag as a temporary memorial to her late husband because he was a former Marine.

Greg Bullis, who grew up in San Bruno, joined the U.S. Navy in 1978 and was later assigned to serve in the Marine Corps as a Fleet Marine Force corpsman. He remained on active duty until 1982 and then he became a reservist with the 23rd Marine Regiment in San Bruno. 

Greg Bullis, his son William and his mother Lavonne Bullis all died in the fire. Five others were left dead from the explosion.

Thank you to his fellow Marines for honoring him in this way. He was a great man and missed by so many.

Wonderful photo. If you can make the grade as a Marine, you are always a Marine. There are no ex-Marines. As I learned from Marines I know and worked with, their culture is a great and unique one. Much love to Greg and the Bullis family.
