Marine Sgt. Julian C. Chase Among Those Who Died For You Last Week – Week 22 [VIDEOS]

When a soldier pays the ultimate price and lays down his or her life protecting the freedom of our great country it goes largely unnoticed; until now. Every week I post names of those “who gave all” so I can pay my respects and remember why I/we have the freedom we do. This weeks list is the longest to date and I hope you too will salute these brave warriors who gave their all last week! You have full authority to share this weekly post anywhere you like.
