Action 191 - Honor Heroes (Mile 4).

I am dedicating each mile that I run in the Pasadena Marathon to another Marine Corps hero who has made the ultimate sacrifice, so that in my own small way, they may be honored, acknowledged, and remembered.

Action 191 - Honor Heroes (Mile 4). I will run mile four in honor of PFC Sean Cardelli. He is remembered as a devoted son, brother and uncle. I will run for this Marine out of respect for his own outstanding service and devotion to his Marine Corps family.


Marine Pfc. Sean T. Cardelli, 20, died February 1, 2006 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom. Originally from Downers Grove, Ill., he was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif.; attached to 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward); killed Feb. 1 by enemy small-arms fire while conducting combat operations near Fallujah, Iraq.
