And once a Marine, always a Marine

Semper Fi sir!

Last summer, Frank DeAngelis, a New Jersey resident and World War II veteran constructed a simple but elegant shadow box for the family of Marine Sgt. Joshua Frazier. The box, given to Frazier's mother, Shelia Cutshall of Spotsylvania County, contained the medals, patches and shooting awards the 24-year-old Marine earned before he died in Iraq in 2007.

DeAngelis, 83, is making one for every Marine killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, as long as he is able.

This story is definitely worth your time. Men like this a few and far between these days.
