The PGR has been requested to Honor the Interment of Cpl Benny A. Ravida and his Wife Mary L. Ravida on 05-20-2011 at the Saratoga National Cemetery.
As a young marine, just 17, he joined the U.S.M.C. with his big brother Tony. He was in Iwo Jima when the flag was raised and was very proud of that. He won the bronze star for bravery when he put out a fire in an ammunition dump, saving many of his fellow Marines from danger.
Please arrive at the Cemetery by 1:00PM for staging.
LRC will be Big Dan Nolin
Moderator's note: This is a dual interment - Cpl. Benny and his wife Mary L. Ravida
