Cody Green was a 12-year kid from Indiana who was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old.He loved the Marines. His parents said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps as he bravely fought the battle into remission three times.Although cancer-free at the time, chemotherapy had lowered his immune system and he developed a fungus infection that attacked his brain.Two weeks ago, as he struggled to fend off that infection in the hospital, the Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage.They presented Cody with Marine navigator wings and named him an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps.For one Marine, that wasn’t enough. So that night, before Cody Green passed away, he took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s hospital door all night long, 8 hours straight.Nowhere on the face of this planet is there a country so blessed as we to have men and women such as this. I know several: Chris Francovich, Leon Roberts & Jim Watson come to mind. I wish I could personally tell this Marine how proud he makes me to be an American.God, I do so love this country.

Cody Green was a 12-year kid from Indiana who was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old.

He loved the Marines. His parents said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps as he bravely fought the battle into remission three times.

Although cancer-free at the time, chemotherapy had lowered his immune system and he developed a fungus infection that attacked his brain.

Two weeks ago, as he struggled to fend off that infection in the hospital, the Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage.

They presented Cody with Marine navigator wings and named him an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps.

For one Marine, that wasn’t enough. So that night, before Cody Green passed away, he took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s hospital door all night long, 8 hours straight.

Nowhere on the face of this planet is there a country so blessed as we to have men and women such as this. I know several: Chris Francovich, Leon Roberts & Jim Watson come to mind. I wish I could personally tell this Marine how proud he makes me to be an American.

God, I do so love this country.
