I’m not sure if this is the same Mike Rosa I served with in Vietnam, over there he was in communications as a wireman. We were very good Friends over there. After the war he lived in Manhattan and I lived just across the river in Hoboken. Mike was a good man and Super Marine. This is a very sad story especially after we went through over there. May God deal with the bastard that is guilty of his death. Semper Fi my Brother
