"My Dad served in the Marine Corps. I served in the Marine Corps and my brother Matthew served in the Marines. Mathew too was an Afghanistan combat veteran (0311), who served in Helmand Province in 2010. Words cannot express the thanks that is owed to you and yours brother, but you should know that your memory does live on in the hearts of many Americans. My 7 year old daughter, Emily is completing a poster and book report featuring you and your faithful service to our country from "Dogs On Duty." Thank you and Semper Fidelis!
