A Marine with Combat Logistics Regiment-15, 1st Marine Logistics Group (Fwd) pays his final respects to fallen comrade Pfc. Vincent M. Frassetto, a fire-direction controlman with Military Police Company, CLR-15. Frassetto was fatally wounded by an improvised explosive device attack while on a vehicle patrol to Al Asad, Iraq. Frassetto, a 21-year old from Toms River, N.J., is remembered most for his upbeat personality and contagious smile. ?Looking back, there isn?t a time I can remember that he wasn?t smiling? He picked us up, he helped us,? said Lance Cpl. Christopher P. Manuel, an artillery specialist with 1st Battalion, 10th Marines. Frassetto?s awards include the National Defense Service and Global War on Terrorism medals.
