Pvt. Daniel A. Gatto
United States Marine Corps
1967 to 1969
Pvt. Daniel A Gatto, the son of Aniello and Carmen Gatto enlisted in the United States Marines at the age of 17following in his Uncle Carlos' footsteps. Daniel started and ended his tour of duty in the Quang Tri Province, where sadly he lost his life after only 18 days. Daniel was proud and strived to be the best of the best. Daniel grew up in Amsterdam and was an outstanding athlete throughout his school years. He was an amazing young man who had a bright future ahead of him, only to have his life cut short leaving behind a newborn son, Daniel Gatto Jr. We have missed Daniel every day and will never forget the sacrifice he made for god and country. We love and miss you our dear brother.
