In Memory of my friend Sgt Henry Toledo USMC
 
CAMP LEJEUNE MARINES DIES AT TRAINING ACCIDENT DURING CAX
March, 1995.

The Camp Lejeune Marine fatally shot Tuesday by a .50-calliber machine gun at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at Twentynine Palms was identified as Cpl. Henry Toledo. Toledo, 25, was shot once in the chest. He was a member of 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalioin of the 2nd Marine Division. He was a native of Luquillo, Puerto Rico.

Agents of the Navial Criminal Investigative Service are still probing the incident. The shooting occurred shortly before 1:30 p.m. Tuesday at a Camp Wilson vehicle ramp.

Toledo was evacuated to the naval hospital at Twentynine Palms and pronounced dead at 1:58 p. m. Tuesday.

The victim and his unit were at Twentynine Palms for a combined-arms exercise that started in mid-January. "They were near the end of the CAX," Thompson said.


Sgt Henry (Papito) Toledo and I grew up together, lived just a few houses down from one another, and were school mates from 1st grade until High School. We both joined the Marines shortly after graduating from High School.

Henry died during a training accident while at CAX 17 years ago today. My brother you might be gone but as long as I draw a breath you will never be forgotten. SEMPER FIDELIS.
