Anthony, I remember you as a leader in our Marine Corps Platoon 1004.
I believe you were our "Honor Marine" and our first PFC. I was very sorry to see your name as well as 3 other Marines from Platoon 1004 were KIA.
I saw your name on the Wall in DC and I can say I was proud to know you.
Another Marine reporting SIR. . .
You are remembered today as you always have been. You are forever ... part of our family. Thank You for your sacrifice, Tony.
With much Honor, Love and Prayers for all.
