Mary, please know that your son is always on my mind and your family is in my prayers. What a noble and selfless thing to do, to join the marine corps, knowing you will deploy and that your life may be put at risk. He is a true hero. I pray that God wraps his arms around you and your family during this time of grief, and that you may find comfort in the most unlikely of places. Anthony... Thank you for your service to this country. You are the epitome of freedom. We all love you so much.
