What can I put on my father's grave to honor his service in the Marine Corps?

My dad passed away 5 days ago. During WWII he fought in the pacifc in the Marines. After the war he became a general practioner. He loved the Marines and loved being a gp. He was a member of Marine Corps league. I was thinking about the inscription on his grave (he's got a temporarily marker right now). I was thinking about writing the following " DR. JUSTIN DANIEL .... PFC US MARINE CORPS-WWII- 1924-2018 LOVING HUSBAND FATHER AND FRIEND" and then have an eagle globe and anchor symbol depicted on his gravestone. What do you think?

    You could add the word "Patriot" to "LOVING HUSBAND FATHER AND FRIEND".

    you'll do better to use "MD" afterward instead of "DR" before [if true, of course].

    otherwise, I like it {but then my father served in the WWII Army and has a grave marker to show his Distinguished Service Cross}
