    Lance Cpl. Benigno Nieto, unit clerk, Headquarters Company, 3rd Marine Regiment, pays his respects to Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley during a memorial service at Dewey Square, Oct. 29. Marines, sailors, families and friends attended a 3rd Marine Regiment memorial to honor the lives and service of Buckley, Staff Sgt. Scott Dickinson and Cpl. Richard Rivera Jr. The Marines were killed in action while supporting combat operations in Afghanistan, Aug. 10. “Each of these men served their entire careers in the Marine Corps during a time of war each of these men served 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.”
