Captain Robert Moriarty
I served in the Chosan Young Marines in California. I was a Young Marine from 1984 till 1990. I served in
the United States Marines from 1990 till 1994. I served in combat as a
Marine in Desert Sheild and Desert Storm in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. I am
presently a Graphic Designer in the city of Whittier California. I am
engaged to be married and becoming the Step father of a 5 year old girl and
2 year old boy. I will be moving to Bakersfield Ca. and purchase a home
there during this summer.
Thanks again for your inquiry...and I will send you that bio shortly.
Good luck to you Semper Fidelis
|Im in that picture with John Garcia.
Bottom row kneeling. Im also in the picture of the 1987 NCO School as a 2nd
Lieutenant. Im just to the right of John Garcia...we were assigned as
instructors for that school as El Toro MCAS. Justin Gamble was not in my OCS
Class. Because only a few of us got our commissions. Im almost sure he was
in the class after us. I did see him become a 2ndLt. but I was already a
Capt. at that time. He actually moved to virginia for a short time... he
served as a colonel over there.
I also enjoyed seeing Sgt.Maj Corneil being on that list. I was his Adult
drill instructor when he was a young marine recruit. Now that was a hard
core Young Marine...he earned my respect. But the young marine you might
want to talk to is Danny Faustino. He was my boss in the Young Marines. He
retired as a Major from my unit in 1988. He was the National Young Marine of
the Year in 1983. I looked up to him so much....everyone did. Before Colonel Gamble, Major Faustino was the Senior
ranking Young Marine in the nation. I took that honor after him and Col.
Gamble did it after me. If you could get in touch with him...that would be
some young marine history.
Thanks for your hard work.
Thanks and Semper Fi
