    Semper Fi, May God bless he, his family and all of his loved ones. Saying "THANKS" for your service seems such a small thing. But "THANKS".

    Heart breaking, and as mom of a LCpl, I must tell you "non-hostile" death is really sad, and questionable. I would be sure, as a family member, to have this incident thoroughly investigated. One must see hazing these young Marines, leads to horror! Could this be the case? Us parents need to question more! Thank God my son is on his way out. To the family of the Hero, thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice. God Soeed, and rest in peace child.
