Marine Corps:

I want to thank you, but I realize I don’t know where to begin. However, my family did, so I just want to say that placing our love one’s headstone was something we could not have done without you. The time I spent watching you do so, I realized you were a very special group of individuals. A wonderful person placed the headstone perfectly. The family of Malvin Tayler can only say: Thank you so much for you service.
