Five Years Ago

Today, we acknowledge the fifth anniversary of the death of Cpl. Matthew Dillon, USMC.

As has been the tradition, Matt’s parents and several friends will meet at his grave and share some stories of Matt’s life. I consider it a high honor to have been included in that group.

May his memory be eternal and may God bless and watch over his family and all those men and women that wear the uniform of our Country.
