Today’s tearjerker

Meet Cody Green.

Sick: The 12-year-old had been seriously ill for much of his short life, but his courage impressed the U.S. Marines

Throughout his short life, young Cody Green had admired the bravery of the U.S. Marines.  At 12 years old, he had defeated childhood leukemia three times, and his fight against cancer so inspired the United States Marine Corps, that they made him an honorary Marine.  They stood post outside of his hospital room the night he died, and they will bury him with full military honors.

Honour guard: Mark Dolfini, 39, a local Marine, was so moved by Cody's story that he helped make the 12-year-old an honorary Marine before he passed on Saturday due to an infection related to cancer

Semper Fi, Marine.
