Stories

Tony- I will never forget that fist fight we had in homeroom class A- Hamilton HS. That was a blast. Fellow classmate and Marine, Joe D'Eufemia (vacoy03@bellsouth.net)

Tony just thinking back again and ran across your information. God Bless and thank you for your service. (joedeufemia@rocketmail.com)

Thank you Cpl. for your service to this great nation and to our Corps...

THE WALL

Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same

The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces

Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives


"War drew us from our homeland

In the sunlit springtime of our youth.

Those who did not come back alive remain

 in perpetual springtime -- forever young --

And a part of them is with us always."

--- Author Unknown ---

 God Bless  You                 

 

 

Vietnam Wall; panel 50W--line 26 Tony was a very bright and intelligent young man. Quite ready to be the good Marine NCO that I am sure he was. JF

The following account comes from Thomas J. Vogel's Book..Growing Up In Vietnam....

After Steve and I went on R&R,the company packed up and moved to hill 37. They immediatly went to the field on a operation in Dodge City. They surprised the gooks in a village and even captured some of them.

The next day Kilo moved out in a column. They left some of the guys behind to guard the prisoners. Lt. Thomas, the new CO,led them through a clearing that bordered a long, thin lake.

(Jim McCarthy) "The lake was on my right, and the entire embankment was lined with large punji stakes. The stakes were leaning and facing toward the Kilo Marines. As soon as I saw that, I radioed that it didn't look good."

The stakes made getting down the embankment for protection nearly impossible. On the left flank was a 100-meters square field. A tree line was on all three sides of the field.

"As we crossed the field, the gooks opened up from ambush from two sides. It was a classic L-shaped ambush. Second Platoon was in the lead, and most of the KIA's came from us.".....

I was numb as Mac listed the dead. It just couldn't be real. Anthony Pino,Raphael Rendon,Rice, and Cpl. Serrano .......
