    This had nothing to do with being a Marine. If it had just reported that he was a son, brother, husband, father and uncle, would you be quiet so negative? Take away the fact that he served this country for 9 1/2 years, was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, and did more for his country and family in his 27 short years than most people even think of doing, and you still have a man who tragically lost his life. He got no more or less media attention had he not “just been a Marine”. Believe me, this is not the way my brother should have received attention. And, I ask you, had it been your family member, would you be so biting in your comments? I think not.
