The database page for Manuel Aguiar Soares
He was a young Marine who never got the chance. He was killed on his first time out. I remember it like it was yesterday, I was there when he got hit, he died days later. Unfortunately we in his platoon never got the opportunity to find out how unique of a person he was.
