Lance Corporal Marchese recently returned from his deployment in Yemen. Jesus deployed last November and his Marine Corps flag was placed in the display on December 29th by his brother Marine Private Hugo Marchese along with his mom Nancy and dad Angelo. That was a first for us, having one brother personally appear to place the other brother’s flag in the display. Hugo had been home on leave at the time after graduating from Parris Island boot camp. Hugo just finished his advanced training and is now at Camp Lejeune and unfortunately cannot be there Wednesday. However, he will be there in spirit for his brother.
If your schedule permits, please come out to Wednesday’s ceremony and welcome home Lance Corporal Jesus Marchese as he accepts his Marine flag and has it replaced it in the display with his personalized US flag.
