Cody Green, a 12-year kid in Indiana was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old. He loved the Marines;his parents said he drew strength from the Marine Corps. 2 weeks ago, the Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage. They named him an honorary member of the US Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn’t enough so that night, before Cody passed away, he took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s door all night long.
Four-year-old Paige Bennethum really, really didn't want her daddy to go to Iraq. So much so, that when Army Reservist Staff Sgt. Brett Bennethum lined up in formation at his deployment this July, she couldn't let go. No one had the heart to pull her away. (www.nbcphiladelph...)
