James,

It was 3 years ago today that you gave your life while serving your country, trying to save your fellow Marine..You are what a "True" hero is!!! Your love for your country and fellow Marines continue to inspire us. No person could ever fill your shoes but we would be honored just to walk in your tracks..I love you and miss you terribly. Please hug Mike, Aaron Ken and Edwin for us.

Never retreat, never surrender, never forget.

Semper Fidelis,

love Dad
