East Texas Marine in serious condition after fight with other Marine

An East Texas Marine is in a Missouri hospital with multiple injuries Tuesday evening after a fight with another Marine on base.

Private First Class Matthew Pereiro, from a little community just west of Nacogdoches, received multiple injuries, including a broken nose, severe head injuries and a brain injury.

It was so serious that at one point he was on a ventilator. Family members have released a statement saying Pereiro is slowly but surely getting better.
