My thoughts go to the family and friends of Sgt. Charles C. Strong, 28, of Sulfolk, Virginia who died in the line of duty on Sept, 15 in Heral province in Afghanistan. Sgt. Strong was assigned to Marine Special Operations Battalion, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command from Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
This brave Marine was far too young to leave this life. My thoughts (and I’m sure those of Americans everywhere) are with his family and loved ones who are faced with this most horrific tragedy. I hope Sgt. Strong’s family and friends can take some comfort in knowing that Americans, everywhere, honor his service and share their grief over this irreplaceable loss. Semper Fi!
