  1. Back in 1987 when I was stationed in Camp Pendleton, I attended a prayer breakfast the base was sponsoring, and Tommy Lasorda was the guest speaker–remember those were his heyday years–there was a relatively small group of us, maybe about 40-50 of us Marines, So, it was an intimate setting. Afterwards, I got a chance to meet and talk with him a bit. What a great guy. RIP.
