Salute to troops
In Honor of a Fallen Hero
Sgt Wade Wilson of the United States Marine Corps died last Friday May 11th in Afghanistan. He was a true Hero who was loved by many. His death has greatly impacted our small town of Centerville, Tx as well as surviving marines. I am sending this email because he was totally in love with Taylor Swift according to those closest to him. One of his best friends made a YouTube video in hopes to reach Ms. Swift. My husband is in Afghanistan as well and I just feel like this video should be seen. In honor of a true hero who was only 22 years old below are newspaper links as well as the link to the video in hopes it reaches Taylor Swift. http://mobile.theeagle.com/collegestation/pm_6630/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=A79vG9eS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEat0yXF8Ng&feature=youtube_gdata_player Sgt Wade Wilson also has a Facebook page set up in his memory. It can be reached by searching Sgt Wade Wilson. A family has lost a son and a brother, friends have lost a friend, and the world has lost a true patriot hero. If this does air and Taylor Swift sees this I would like her to know one thing. She impacted someone who spent what little time he had here making a difference. I hope she watches this video and allow her heart to be touched as so many others have. To do something in honor of Wade, one of her biggest fans, would pay him the ultimate respect. I hope this is aired so the country can be reminded of our Heros who serve and who have fallen. If this does air I wish to remain anonymous. Thank you and God Bless. From a marine wife.... SEMPER FI!!!!
