I was at this ceremony for my cousin LCpl Ralph Fabbri. What an amazing ceremony and wonderful thing the people of Mission Viejo do to honor our men and women! Thank you to all those from Mission Viejo and the USMC that made our trip to honor our legend and the way only heros and legends should be honored! The City of Mission Viejo, California will always have a special place in my heart! Kim L Pennsylvania
