Mario arrived in 1/48 HHC S3 latter half of 1966, and shortly after was assigned to 1/48th A Co. mortar platoon at which time they were looking for soccer players to try out for the 3AD Soccer Team. He made the team and when he rotated out in 1969 he was still playing soccer but glad to return to the states and civilian life.
