From MichaelSavage.com: This is one of those stories that just wrench your heart: a little boy who fought the good fight and loved the Marines. And the Marines reached out, and loved him back.
As a former Army paratrooper, Ranger, Pathfinder, and combat infantry commander, I continue my lifelong admiration for the United States Marines. There is something in their esprit de corps the Army can only achieve in local unit bursts. They are a national treasure, and I thank God theyre on our side.
If the Army or the Navy ever get to Heavens scene, they will find those valiant Leathernecks, standing guard on Cody Green.

Rest in peace and Semper Fi, Cody.
A blurry-screen story.
Amen. What a beautiful gesture. This young man & all those who serve make me so proud to be an American.
Thank you for posting this interview with the Marine who stood guard outside Cody’s door as he was dying and was part of his funeral. God bless them all!
