Happy Birthday Marines - 10 November 1775

239 Years  &  Still Kicking Ass



  We Are Marines  -  We Follow Orders 

We Go Where We're Told  -  and We Win When We Get There

General Pete Pace USMC

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

General Pace was a Platoon Leader with Golf 2/5 in Vietnam in 1968

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.
