Beitel and I were at schools battalion together. We were very good friends. We used to catch movies together and joke about how the people working at Subway were doing it wrong. (He worked at subway as a teen). I am so sorry for his families loss. He was a great Marine and I’m sure an incredible police officer. If anybody has his family’s email, I have a few pictures of him from schools battalion in 1997.
