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
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.
