    Just wanted to share that we lost A true American hero and career Marine today. Steven Dessin of the Vietnam 1/9 division, survivor of Khe Sanh passed. After 4 years 3 purple hearts serving infantry in Nam, Steve served on the Airwing for the Navy Seals and Marine Force Recon as a gunner, flying into active missions all over the world. He was one of my closest friend, a mentor, and more like an adopted grandfather. Ive never met someone more dedicated to the American as he was. I will always carry the stories of the old core to my 2 sons, as I hope they do to theirs.

    A toast of Crown,and cheer to Steven W. Dessin, my dearest friend. Thank you for all you have passed to me.
