Last Measure Of Devotion
Flags across the Commonwealth are flying at half staff today to remember and honor Captain Richard W. Vincent, D Company, 2nd Battalion, 18th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, United States Marine Corps.
He was killed in action the first day of bloody fighting on the far flung island of Tarawa, but his remains were recovered only last October. He will be buried today in his hometown, Westfield.
Semper Fidelis Captain. Welcome home.
