Local Marine in Iraq

MILFORD

Sgt. Flavio D. Mendes, 25, of Milford, a rifle team leader assigned to 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, Regimental Combat Team 5, questioned local citizens recently in Fallujah in this photo released by the Marine Corps.

Mendes was part of Operation Matador, which took place in the Andaloos District of the city and was intended to make sure no insurgents were living or operating there, the Marines said.
