I just happened to come across a plaque for Frank Vallone, USMC while looking at the Forgotten Tours web site. I want his family to know that I will never forget his sacrifice, nor will my family. My husband is a Vietnam Veteran, one of my sons was in the Marine Corps too and served in Kosovo in 2000. I have four sons. We have taught our sons from an early age to love their country and those who serve in the armed forces. It's patriots such as Frank Vallone who have made the supreme sacrifice, who will save our country from those who seek to destroy it. God Bless Frank Vallone, may you be resting in peace with God's angels.

From a fellow American,
Susan Chappina
