Happy Birthday Marines - 10 November 1775

General Pete Pace USMC

Lance Corporal Guido Farinaro was KIA on 30 July 1968,

then 2nd Lt Pace was his Platoon Leader.

In a recent interview General Pace is quoted as saying that he can still remember the names and see the faces of the Marines whom he served with in Vietnam. "I never want to lose that," he said. "Under the glass on my desk is a picture of Lance Cpl. Guido Farinaro of Bethpage, N.Y., a 19 year-old corporal killed by a sniper. He was the first Marine I lost in combat. I keep his picture as a reminder that he and Lance Cpl. Chubby Hale, and Lance Cpl. Buddy Travers and Cpl. Mike Witt and Staff Sgt. Willie Williams and all the others who died following my orders. I can never repay that."

Pete Pace is one first class General, my thanks to Rocky "Rocketman" Fortner for sending this in.

Our Hearts are with our Brothers at War 

Our Thoughts and Prayers are with their Families here at Home



Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers and Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, and skinny and mean.

They�re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on the defense. They�ve got really short hair and always go for the throat.
