Dear Family of Anthony J. Denier,
I am a student from Plains High School, we are writing a letter to those who served our country. Luckily I got Anthony J. Denier which I am very grateful to have because reading the story behind this hero, touches my heart. Don't get surprised when you received a letter from me..
If you would like to contact me please e-mail me @
email@example.com this would really help me to write an appreciation letter and know a little bit more about Anthony J. Denier
Anthony, you will not be forgotten. I wrote a poem about you shortly after you lost your life. The poem was given to your mother and I think of you many times throughout each year. I just wanted to visit your site. I never met you, but you are missed by many.
I just met one of your buddies in a bar. Take care of him. Look down favorably on those who stayed behind, and know they are looking after you. Semper Fidelis.
We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Denier Family know that we recently sent a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project in the name of Anthony J. Denier US Marine Lance Corporal. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.

I do not know you, or your son personally. What I do know personally is the loss of every fellow Marine. I feel the loss, I cry the tears and I feel the hurt. But I rejoice in the fact that young men and women such as LCpl Denier, chose to be a part of something so much more than themselves. I look at our young warriors every day and am truly humbled and honored by them. Whether I served beside them or they have served after me, I am honored. Take comfort and pride in the fact that you instilled a sense of honor, duty and country in your child. He has served among the finest human beings that this nation and world has ever had the privilege of having tread this earth. I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your son now stands among other Marines guarding Heaven's Gates. "For he who sheds his blood with me, shall forever be my brother."

Whjo Chose to be a Marine
I chose to be Marine,
because I wanted to save lives even if it meant giving mine up.
It's OK Mom to cry.
I can see you from here.
That folded flag you held so tight..
I touched it. I wiped your tears and ...wept with you.
The only regret I have is that I am not there to help my troops.
Tell everyone hello and that I am OK.
I will be watching them from up here in the CLOUDS.
Heaven is as beautiful as they said. So much love. Mom, that warmth you felt when the sun came in your window this morning…
that was me kissing your cheek. Love you.
There are heroes that take up arms and fight for freedom.
The brave, the ones that fear not death.
Then there are the silent heroes. The ones that are there to save lives.
The ones that care more about others and fear not death,
but instead fight death every day.
The knock upon my door this evening was of such a hero.
He died trying to save a comrade.
With bullets flying and grenades exploding,
he kept on trying to save a comrade till his life was taken.
Heaven has a brighter star now. He sits beside God and His angels.
We are so sorry your Blue Star has turned to Gold May God be with you as you honor rhe memory of your precious loved One LCpl Anthony Denier

CHRISTMAS WITHOUT ME
Do tears blur the colors of Christmas lights
And carols make you sigh?
Are you saddened because it's Christmas
And I am not nearby?
Do you think of all the joyous times
We shared in seasons past?
Does the ache feel overwhelming
Seeming like it will always last?
Please don't weep for me.
Know this Christmas is my best.
At this Christmas dinner
I'm seated with the Honored Guest
If the tears you cry are for you,
Lonely without me today
To share this year's season,
Then listen to what I say.
God's gift that first Christmas
Was much more than His son.
He gave to us the promise
Of eternal life for everyone.
Now that I've gone on and received
That promised gift of life,
I'm very much a part of
The Christmas spirit light.
I'm the angel sitting on top of
A decorated tree
And a simple Christmas carol
Sung by a child so reverently.
I'm the Santa on the corner
Loudly ringing his bell.
I'm in that Christmas Eve story
That you know so well.
I'm in every sight and sound
That brings people Christmas joy.
I'm a smile on the face of a child
Who received a much loved toy.
Now that I'm part of the season
We loved and shared so much,
Close your eyes, think of me.
Reach out and feel my touch.
Please share in all the joy I'm feeling
Being a part of Christmas cheer.
Look around and you'll find me.
Joyous Christmas, for I am near.
We are so Sorry your Blue Star has turned to Gold
May God be with you at this most difficult time Granting you peace
