After the day my uncle died, all four of his brothers joined the service. Three joined the Marines and one (my father) joined the Navy SEALs. I don't know how good a fighter he was, but I can surely guess he was a good one! Your mother told me that you wanted to fight for your country, but she didn't want you to go because you were 19. Well, you are gone. Wish I could have known you. Love you!

Your niece (and a future Marine!),
