My son is serving in Afghan. and I know it would make me feel so proud if someone wanted to honor my son's memory...I would never want a tattoo for myself, but if it is meaningful to the person who gets it I think that is awesome they care so much for that Military person to do something like that.

May God bless and protect all our Armed Forces, and their families

Why don't they honor him by demanding US troops come home now so they don't all come home in body bags? A real tribute would be to end this pointless conflict and restore sanity to our foreign policy. We are all better than this war.

That's right, John, suggest the impossible as a tribute. If you think these ongoing conflicts are pointless, then you can count yourself amongst the uninformed. The wolf is at the door, dummy. And if my physical health would allow it, I'd get a tattoo to honor this fallen Marine too, and I don't even know him.

John, save your soapbox rants for a different forum. This one is to honor the courageousness of one of our brave soldiers who gave his life so you can tactlessly yap your trap. Whether you agree with the politics involved or not, this is a tragic loss of such a young heart goes out to his family.
