    I was 3 years younger than Frankie he's was a friend of my older brother and a cousin of a friend Jim Lago, he left a mark on me knowing how good of a person he was and made you feel good when you said hi. A great smile and big heart, Frank is still missed. And remembered fondly.

    Frank, you may not remember me, but I joined the Marines in Nov 66 as a 17 year old,, and was sent to Parris Island In Jan 67,, I never saw you again after hanging out at Nanke's at the Pike when you were home on leave..
    I spent my War years with the Marine Hospital Liaison with the Army 249th and Air Force 20th Casualty Staging Flight,, from Jan 68 till Nov 69,,, I met a lot of Brave wounded from Khe Sanh and Hue,, Heros, Like You,,,
    I did get togo on a Med Cruise after Japan,,, almost re-enlisted, but a friend from NA talked me into going to Bergen Community Collage instead,,, Billy Larson,,, you may remember him,, he served in Nam and came through my unit in NC before he was discharged,,, I know you did not have the Life you deserved,, But I want you to know, many of my adventures I had you and a few others in mind as I lived a few lifetimes since then, See you on the other side, Brother,,, Jimi Lormand SGT USMC 2253977

    I think of you from time to time and can't help myself from crying. You were so young and full of fun and so nice. I know you are in heaven and I talk to you when I think of you...I want to thank you for what you gave for our country. God bless you and God bless America.

    Dear LCPL Frank Thomas Lopinto, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
