Erik, Dirk & Diana, 13 years ago Erik stood by my side during a tough time for me. I will never be able to give you thanks again in person, however, as a U.S. Marine I pledge my sincere devotion to you. I will be involved in this fight against terrorism, along with all my fellow serviceman, someone will answer for what they did to you!
