Fred E. Torres did not want an obituary of any kind and therefore we honor his memory through this webpage.
Fred was a decorated Marine and Vietnam veteran. He served as a 0311-Rifleman and his decorations include: The Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnamese Service Medal with one Star, Vietnamese Campaign Medal and The Combat Action Ribbon.
WE HONOR YOU.
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean; We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marines.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun; We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes; You will find us always on the job--The United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve; In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes, They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.
