3rd Marine Regiment honors fallen with memorial service

Marines and sailors pay respects to their fallen brothers at Dewey Square, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay, Oct. 29. Marines, sailors, families and friends attended the 3rd Marine Regiment memorial ceremony to honor the lives and service of Staff Sgt. Scott Dickinson, Cpl. Richard Rivera Jr. and Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley. The Marines, who were assigned to Headquarters Company, 3rd Marine Regiment, III Marine Expeditionary Force, were killed in action while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan, Aug. 10. “Each of these men served their entire careers in the Marine Corps during a time of war honorably,” said Col. Nathan I. Nastase, commanding officer, 3rd Marine Regiment. “Each of these men willingly accepted the call to deploy into harm’s way without hesitation … we stand together with (the families) in (their) time of grief and our thoughts and prayers have been and will remain with (them). Our fallen brothers will be remembered forever.”
