Marcus, who is 20 years of age, and is my stepson, went into the Marine Corps after graduating from Goshen High School, in 2002. After training, he was stationed at 29 Palms, with the 7th Marines, and in late January, he was deployed to Kuwait.
Marcus has one of his hometown friends close by, Brian Thompson. I could not be more be more proud, of Marcus, were he my own son. His mother and I, both, love and miss him very much. We wish him God speed, and pray everyday for his safe return.
