Cpl Claudio Patino IV

This amazing young man and my friend from Yorba Linda was killed fighting for our freedom on June 22,2010. I feel honored and blessed to know him. I will never forget the day he was baptized. I still remember him coming up to Mike and I at church to tell us he was joining the marines. He was so excited to serve our country. He was a Warrior and now he is My HERO. God be with you until we meet again Claudio!!!

I had the honor of ushering at the funeral, allowing me the opportunity to talk to his 29 palms trainer, a member of his Afganistan unit injured in his last battle, and the other Marines attending the service. Also, to greet and hug many family members. An experience I shall never forget! He served with honor. Thank you Claudio for serving us.
