Bronx Recon Marine Passes Away

Angel Rondon recently passed away. He finally succumbed to injuries he received in Vietnam during fighting days as a Recon Marine. My last visit with Angel at Saint Barnabas Hospital was not a pleasant one. An infection in his foot had spread and left him immobilized. Shortly after it took his life, even though he laid in bed, with no speech or much movement, I know he wanted to get up and strut. Because in his own words: “we can’t show weakness, we are Marines”.
