Lance Corp. Holmes joined the Marine Corp. on October 8, 2001. He graduated from St. Bernard-Elmwood Place High School the previous June. We are engaged to be married and had set May 3, 2003 for our wedding date. He was stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA and was deployed overseas in February. He is a very special, caring person and his whole family misses him. We are all very proud of him and hope to see him soon.
