On the evening of 19 June 1985, four U.S. Marine embassy guards (Staff Sergeant Dickson; Staff Sergeant Handwork; Sergeant Kwiatkowski & Sergeant Weber), two American civilians, six Salvadorans and citizens of other countries were brutally murdered as they sat at a sidewalk cafe, in the Zona Rosa district of San Salvador, an upscale neighborhood located near the Embassy. There was no warning. The Marines were not in uniform; they were not on duty. They were shot down in cold blood, by members of a Marxist guerrilla group fighting against the democratically-elected Salvadoran government, for one reason: because they were Americans.
