'He is my hero'
Hi Robin, I saw your "salute" this morning and had to send my son's photo - he is my hero! Cpl. JZ Senbertrand of Villas, NJ is 21 and currently serving his second tour of combat in Iraq with USMC 3/6 KILO. He joined so "others would not have to." He felt he could help protect us from the insanity in that region. We expect his return in August and we will travel to Camp Lejeune, NC to celebrate the battalion! Our brave military deserve the very best salute for volunteering to protect our freedom! God Bless the USA.
-- Dianne Scarlett of Villas, New Jersey
