Let the memory of Donald be with us forever

Marine Staff Sgt. Donald C. May Jr. followed his parents into the military, joining the Marines the year his father, a former tank commander, died in a fishing accident. "He was a clean-cut American boy," said his mother, Brenda Reese May. "When he decided to go into the military, I was proud. Always scared, but proud." May, 31, from Richmond, Va., died March 25 when his tank fell off a bridge into the Euphrates River. May took an interest in the military at an early age. His parents had both served in the Marines, and May became a Naval Sea Cadet at age 12 and, later, a police Explorer. After high school, he joined the military police and guarded Iraqi prisoners during the 1991 Gulf War. He left the service for two years, then rejoined as a tank commander "just like his dad," his mother said. His wife Deborah is expecting their second child.

"I've asked you before to change the misinformation here and you assured me you would. Then failed to do so.

Donald May has THREE children. How nice that if our children ever Google their dad they'll find your page and the mistake you refuse to correct.

So, instead of actually being able to write a tribute for my husband I have to correct YOUR incompetence."
