Anthony, I remember you as a leader in our Marine Corps Platoon 1004.

I believe you were our "Honor Marine" and our first PFC. I was very sorry to see your name as well as 3 other Marines from Platoon 1004 were KIA.

I saw your name on the Wall in DC and I can say I was proud to know you.

Another Marine reporting SIR. . .

Semper Fi,
Richard J. Mullins,

With much Honor, Love and Prayers for all.
