Rest in peace Michael, you're paid in full.

The Final Salute
“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.
This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Marine Michael Arthur Preuss our “Brother-in-Arms”. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Michael. And to Michael it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during Operation Enduring Freedom while serving with the U.S. Marine Corps. Michael, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. You upheld the finest qualities of an American patriot and a Marine warrior: courage, commitment, generosity, sacrifice, love and devotion to family and country. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace. Semper Fi.
On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Michael's family and loved ones.

We are so sorry for your loss. Praying that the Peace of God surrounds you throughout this difficult time.
I had the privilege of teaching Michael at York Junior High. He was a fine young man and ideal student. He obviously grew to be a hero by serving his country. I wish I could have given him my gratitude. Instead, I offer my gratitude for his service to you, his family. I pray for God's peace on your family.
