    Great picture! …… if seeing your son tired and dirty, fighting for with all his might for his life, the lives of his brothers and sisters in arms, and the lives of those he does not know. This marine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met. He would say that is not a true statement. But those who know him….really know him know that is the truth if it was ever told!
