Marine Lance Cpl. William W. White was scheduled to be discharged in February, but that was delayed because of the war. Speakers at his funeral said he wanted to go with his unit to the Middle East out of concern for a fellow Marine who was nervous about going. "That''s the kind of guy he was. ... He always thought about someone else first," said his widow, Mychaele. White, 24, of Brooklyn, N.Y., died March 29 when his military vehicle rolled into a canal. White had wanted to move back to Brooklyn and join the Fire Department or pursue a career in law enforcement, relatives said. "He was a fine gentleman, he set a good example, he led by example, so we have a lot to thank God for," said James Barnett Sefus, who was a spiritual mentor to White, as well as his martial arts instructor.

Not sure what to say?

INCREDIBLE STORY, NEVER MET THIS MARINE, BUT HIS VALOR IS THE TRUE DEFINITION OF WHAT HONOR, COURAGE, AND COMMITMENT MEANS TO OUR PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. #FLYHIGHMARINE

I had the great honor of working along side of Lcpl White. He was a young marine fresh out of basic training when he came to my unit in Okinawa. I will never forget him. Love you bro! Until we meet again, rest easy.

Always thinking about William. This is Jensen's mom.

William your memory is with us forever. Not a day goes by that we don't think about you. With love, from Jensen's mom, Tracy.

My husband is Marine and his daughter is in Parris now about to graduate May 5 , 2017. What an amazing young man. Fearless. God Bless his family and widow.

I was proud to have served with LCpl White during my time in Parris Island over 17 years ago. I wish I could say I knew him better, but I can never forget the calm confidence in the face of the trials he and my other brothers faced in Marine boot camp. God bless his friends, comrades and family. Semper Fidelis.

Cpl white you were the best marine. Sgt hackett
