Close to Home

The U.S. Marine Corps performs plane-side military honors Monday for Cpl. Gregory M.W. Fleury, 23, as his body arrives at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. Cpl. Fleury, a Service High graduate, was one of four Marines who died in a helicopter collision in Afghanistan Oct. 26.

This one hit me hard. Harder than all the rest. Semper Fi soldier. Your mother, family and friends are proud of their brave warrior. No words, actions or compromises on this day. Our world has grown smaller.

My hat is off to Cpl. Fleury. My heart hurts for his family.
