“I joined the Marine Corps and after September 11, 2001, I knew I made the right choice. I saw my wife for the first time in 2005 – it was love at first sight. But life had different plans for us. If photos speak 1,000 words, this one speaks 10,000.”
“Tom’s last act on earth was one of the most courageous things imaginable. His last words to his wife are among the most inspiring I’ve ever heard. I’ll never forget Tom’s last words. I hope you won’t either.”
