RIP tony

Our heart felt sorrow to Anthonys' family. The strenght of the wolf is in the pack. The strength of the pack is in the wolf. South Kitsap pack of 2000 is one player short now..God watch over you and your family Anthony..Mama Rio

I served with Fein in OIF II, Baghdad March 04-05, F. trp 9 U.S. Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division. He was an extremely motivated athelete and a good soldier. His dream was to play professional football, we were all proud to know he had made it. Rest In Peace brother. His arrest was based on a false charge by a "witness" that he had a handgun in a suburbia mall, it was a blackberry.
