  1. I live in North Arlington, New Jersey and my heart just breaks for this family. What brave Americans. Three boys in the Marines. As a neighbor in town I'd like them all to know how much we appreciate all they do for us.
    God Bless You, Osbrany, our United States Marine from North Arlington, who gave his life for his country.

  2. My heart hurts that no mention of this fallen Marine is in the news due to a celebrity's passing. God bless this marine and his family.
