Mark and Sally, I was truly honored to be a part of the funeral service for your Marine son, Mark Tyler, today at the San Joaquin National Cemetery. When you look at the number of Americans that have ever lived, by comparison only a very few have worn the uniform in defense of the country. It is a unique and select club. Then when you consider the size of the Marine Corps, you are in an even more select group - what we call, quoting Shakespeare, "A Band of Brothers."
God Bless you and I know the Lord will continue to comfort and heal you.
Chaplain, U.S.Navy (Ret)
