In Memory of my friend Sgt Henry Toledo USMC

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.

Never bring a knife to a gunfight. No outside beverages either - they're really strict about that shit.

we know those streets are guarded.
Wolves and alligators should be cross-bred to make wolfagators that will be silent and fast, and we'll never have to hear from those people, they will just be wolfagator shit.

Are you fucking serious? That's the most ridiculous thing I've heard all week...and I'm at a senior staff planning conference, so, the bar has been set pretty high. You should be proud. - Gavin
