About the Mission:

The family of US Marine Pasquale F. (Pat) Bovenzi has respectfully requested the PGR to attend the funeral service of this American Hero.

"Pat" (as he liked to be called) served a total of 4 years. His first deployment after training was in the Asiatic Pacific area, Guam, from July 1948 to March 1952 with the 1st Tank Battalion, 1st Marine Division. From Guam he was ordered on a secret combat mission that entailed the assault and landing at Inchon, Korea and eventually the capture and securing of Seoul, Korea. He then participated in the Wonsan-Hungnam – Chosin campaign (Frozen Chosin) and operations against enemy forces in South and Central Korea until August 1951.

Pat then returned stateside to complete his service in a Marine training group and was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant, from Marine Corps Air Station, Cherry Point, NC in March 1952. Pat received the Korean Service Medal with 3 Stars. Presidential Unit Citation with 1 Star.

A portion of this narrative was obtained from the Bartolomeo & Perotto Funeral Home obituary.
