    Lieutenant Col. William H. Vivian, the commanding officer of 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, renders a final salute to Lance Cpl. Benjamin W. Schmidt of San Antonio Oct. 13, after a memorial service honoring the fallen Marine, who died while conducting combat operations Oct. 6. Vivian spoke during the ceremony, offering kind words for the scout sniper.
    “He always showed a real passion for his work and a sincere generosity to his brothers,” said Vivian. “He set an example that lifted others around him to reach a little higher.”
