I have posted a photo album on my profile. There are 6 photos, each with its own commentary. You need to click on each one in order to get the full story. This story is simply unbelieveable. I would have posted all of them here but I didn't know how. These were sent to me in an email. Anyone wanting the email forwarded to them, just PM me an email address and I will forward it to you. This is a sad but wonderful story of a mom, her fallen son, and 9 fallen comrades. Please check it out. It's short but nonetheless amazing. Stay Safe

I forgot you could post on the album itself. Just went through the posts and now I'm all teary eyed again. Thanks for the posts. I just thought the whole thing was amazing and it wasn't doing any good just sitting on my computer. Adam35, I am so sorry for your loss, a true hero, you and he are in my prayers. Stay Safe

That gave me some serious chills. I'm from a Marine famil, former myself, and my brother is currently a LCpl and our last name is Watson. Rest in peace my fallen brothers. Semper Fi, HOORAH!!! You will never be forgotten.

Freaking awesome, a true memorial worthy of an art exhibit, but better to be rolling across the country... One thing struck me, Lance Corporal Huhn was on the right rear window. I believe that was the cousin of a girl who went through the academy with me. He left for Iraq while we were finishing the academy, and was killed by the IED that fall. Amazing, thank you for sharing Murf.

Excellent post! A terrific tribute. My son was in Lima Company 3/25 Marines, in Iraq in 2005. He lost a lot of his close friends, so it makes my day to see that someone else remembers these guys! They did a special on A&E called "The Combat Diaries" about his unit's time in Iraq. He was one of the Marines to speak during the program.
