    Marine Corps Base Hawaii

    Deborah Bongiovi (left), the daughter of fallen U.S. Marine Sgt. Maj. Wayne Hayes and a native of an Escondido, Calif., and a Vietnam veteran who served with Hayes in 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, view a portrait memorializing Hayes following a ceremony at the Rocker Room Staff Noncommissioned Officer Club on 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 Hayes. The Marine was killed in action, Feb. 28, 1967, during Operation Prairie II while serving with many of the 2/3 veterans.
