I cannot bring myself to write the words so deserving of this young man. However, I fully support his dedication to serving his country and will never question the reasoning. I pray that Marlon's 3 children grow up to honor and respect all that their dad represented. Our country can use allot more good men like him.
February 1st will always be a sorrowful and joyous occassion as we celebrate the life that was and the life that is; My wife and her twin sister (Marlon's mother-in-law)celebrate their birthday on February 1st.
Army's Company D, 1st Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment,

Halfway down the road to hell,
In a shady meadow green,
Are the souls of all dead troopers camped
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place
Is known as Fiddler’s Green.
