Your Roommate From Flight School

Marty I think often about us being roommates while in Primary Flight School at Ft Wolters Texas. I tell my grandchildren how proud it was to know you and those silly harassments we went through as Officer trainees from our tac officer CW2 George Marcotte. I ended up marrying a girl from Texas, so often we would return to her home to where Ft Wolters was located. Our Tac Officer Chief Warrant Officer Marcotte retired to live in that town. I was able to visit with him a few times and he would discuss with me about how good we were able to take his harassment during room inspection. He also wondered how we kept those concrete floors in our rooms so shiny. I told him it was your idea to make booties out of an old Army blanket and wear them around over our boots while in our room. That was because you had more experience in the service than I did. Thanks by the way!

To A Hero I've Never Met

Martin,
We have never met. I am your son-in-law. I married your second daughter, Christina, on October 31, 1985. She is a remarkable woman. In 1987, we deployed to West Germany where I served with the 2D Armored Cavalry Regiment. Upon our arrival, Christina was pregnant with your first grandson, Corey Jacobb “Jake” Leary, born to us on October 2, 1987. Corey is a soldier assigned to the 423rd Transportation Company, located in Colorado Springs, Co. He is also a firefighter who served with the Falcon, Colorado F.D. and currently assigned to the Peyton, Colorado F.D. Jake is married to Kyrie and they have 3 beautiful children: Ariana, Chyanne, and Brody.
On March 23, 1989 Christina delivered your second granddaughter, Brittney Nicole Leary. Brittney also served our country in the United States Army. Brittney served in Afghanistan, OIF, assigned to 3/82nd, ALL AMERICAN, MEDEVAC, where she served as a communication crew member. After her combat tour was completed, she decided to return to the civilian life and married Mitchell Ledford, also serving in the 82nd Airborne Division, with multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. On September 11, 2011 Brittney delivered your 4th great-grandchild; Alyvia Jade Ledford.
Christina has had a very challenging life. When I first met her I was stationed at Fort Devens, MA. She was attending college and working three different jobs. We only knew each other for 58 days before we married. Even though stationed all over the world, Christina continued pursuing her educational goals. She obtained her Associates Degree in Nashua, NH, then her Bachelors Degree while we were stationed at Fort Dix, NJ. Our last duty assignment was at Fort Carson, CO. where Christina finished not only her first, but her second Masters Degree.
We have now been married almost 29 years and I am honored to be her husband and your son-in-law. On the 14th of May, 2014 I will be departing Rancho Cucamonga, CA on the 26th annual “Run For The Wall” cross country motorcycle ride remembering our country’s missing and killed in action. Christina has never been to the National Mall nor the Wall to view for herself Panel 23E, Line 50. On Saturday, May 24, 2014 this will no longer be true. Christina, will have the honor of placing her hand upon your name and finally be reunited with not only a name from the past, not only an American hero, but with the man responsible for her very existence, “her father.”
Thank you for sharing her with me, for she is my EVERYTHING!

Your son-in-law,
Lonny L. Leary
SFC, USA (Retired)

Remembering An American Hero

Dear WO Martin James Coronis, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
