Ever look on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines."
Final verse, Marine Corps Hymn
Ted, I never knew you - I was 8 years old when you gave your life for us all.
But I've grieved for your mom and dad, especially at holiday time. Each day I drive past your mom and dad's home, and each day I think of them and of you.
To you, your comrades and all servicemen and women I say:
Anthony John Pache, Jr.
I still think of you and miss you. I am so sorry I left because perhaps this would not have happened.
From a fellow veteran of Alpha 1/7.
