SALUTE OUR MILITARY
We are honored and humbled for the opportunity to give back to the men and women who have fought so bravely and selflessly to protect our country and our freedom.
Thank you for supporting our troops.
Vincent Michael Frassetto 3/11/85-9/7/06 PFC USMC
The son of Teri & John Frassetto. He was born in North Jersey, and was raised in Toms River, NJ, at the Jersey shore. He attended Toms River North High school, where he played on the football team.
He was the 3rd of 4 children. His siblings are as follows:
Gina Frassetto-Ortiz- Orange CA
John Peter Frasetto- USMC reserves - NJ
Alyssa Frassetto- Orange County CA
He followed his big brother into the Marine's and they both went to Iraq within 2 weeks of one another. His older brother John, was a reservist, but Vinny one upped him by joining full time. He was there for 1 week and was on his 2nd mission where he was a front gunner. The vehicle he was in hit an IED and Vinny was the only one that died.
His funeral was the most moving experience I have ever been to. The Patriot Guards showed up to protect the family from any protesters or hecklers, by encircling the church that his viewing was in because of the amount of people that showed up (thousands).
Vinny's older brother Johnny, receiving Vinny's Purple Heart at his funeral.

If you are a vet, we say thank you.
First click on a state, then a city. When it opens, scroll down to the city and the names will appear. Then click on their names. It should show you a picture of the person, or at least their bio and medals. We all should appreciate what those who served in Vietnam sacrificed for our country.
