    Marine Corps Base Hawaii

    U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Stefan Loga, a mortarman with Weapons Company, 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and 22-year-old native of Hot Springs, Ark., explains firing procedures for an 81mm mortar to former Sgt. Alvin Thompson and Tom Householder, Vietnam veterans who served in 2/3, during their visit to Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Aug. 22, 2012. Nearly half a century since they fought through hell in Vietnam, approximately 30 former 2/3 Marines and their families visited the base to reminisce on their service and render honor to a brother lost in combat, Sgt. Maj. Wayne Hayes. Hayes was killed in action, Feb. 28, 1967, during Operation Prairie II while serving with many of the 2/3 veterans.
