Dear friends & family of LCPL Schroeder,
A few days ago I had the pleasure of sitting down with Lima's 3rd plt, 1st squad and labeling pictures they had given me on a CD for our cruise book. We all had such a great time going through their photos. The Marines enjoyed telling me stories of their exploits, laughing here and there as the different photos came up. I came away happy, having had a great time.
Then this happens. I am so sorry, from the bottom of my heart, for your loss. LCPL Schroeder was a great Marine. He lived a hero's life and died a heroic death. I am thankful for the time we were able to spend together. May the Lord bless you and hold you close in his loving arms during these times.
