• Cody Green Made Honorary Marine Before Dying

    Sergeant Mark Dolfini

    Last month, Cody Green was a twelve-year-old boy who revered the Marines and all they stand for; Cody Green was also a little boy dying with cancer.

    From the time he was twenty-two months old, Cody had battled leukemia, and the plucky young boy won that battle. What he could not beat was the terribly weakened immune system left to him by the many rounds of chemotherapy. He died from a fungus that attacked his brain; however, not before being honored by his heroes, the United States Marines.

    “‘They decided Cody, with the strength and honor and courage he showed through the whole thing, he should be a Marine’,” said Cody’s father David Snowberger.

    “Cody was given Marine navigator wings and was made an honorary member of the United States Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn’t enough, so he did even more.”

    Yes, Sergeant Mark Dolfini of Lafayette, Indiana decided that Cody deserved even more, making it his duty to stand guard at Cody’s door for his last eight hours here on this earth.

    And once again we are reminded of just why it is that the United States honors and respects and yes, loves our U.S. military. May God Bless America.
