    I am a sophomore at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois. I am posting this remembrance as part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. I am taking a portion of my time to honor you and your sacrifice. Thank you so much for your loyalty to our country. Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice to help your country and ensure a bright and opportunity filled future for me and our fellow Americans. You can not be thanked enough, soldier. May God be with your family and those who were close to you.
