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,
2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division

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.

I'm so terribly sorry ((Hugs)). I've got such a special place in my heart for the military, and each loss just hurts the heart. I'm so sorry.

That's so sad, so young and with children.

American soldiers are the bravest, most selfless people in the world.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, and eternally grateful to Marlon for his service and sacrifice.

You didn't need many words to say a lot.

Love to you & the rest of the family.
