My thoughts and prayers are with you Mr. and Mrs. Waller, Justin, and especially to your brave son Chris. You all are heros and are such great Americans. As Mike (above) said, hang tough. Thank you for fighting for the freedoms that we have.

Our hearts and best wishes go out to Cody and his entire family. I'd love to send him a card. If possible, please let me know how via I have 2 Marine sons who joined at basically the same time and were in Iraq and Kuwait (home now). Thank you for your service as Marines and your "service" / support as families of Marines. It isn't easy but our Country wouldn't be what it is without people like you who do what you are doing. Thank You! We are sending prayers, good thoughts and wishes your way for a full and complete recovery!
