I served with him in Vietnam.
Carmine was the greatest Marine I ever had the honor of knowing.

He is remembered on the
Delta 1/1 web site

I attended school with Carmine and his brother Anthony in Passaic and was shocked to see his name on the "Wall". He entered the eternal life on 4/25/68, my birthday. May you rest in peace, Brother.

Carmine was a student in my seventh grade class.
He was a vivacious and generous person whose
smile and personality made a deep impression
on me and I am sure his classmates.
Carmine and his family remain in my heart and
prayers. His sacrifice and that of his buddies
shall always be remembered.
