Marine Sgt. Wade D. Wilson Among Those Who Died For You Last Week – Week 20 [VIDEOS]

Military Times

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 should be the most shared piece of the week, every week, so let's not forget to let others know so our soldiers don't die in vain but can look down knowing we all think they are the hero's that they are!  You have full authority to share this weekly post anywhere you like.
