Saddened Hearts

            Itís with a saddened heart that I returned to Charlie Company last night as we have lost a great Marine to the rigors of combat in Iraq , Cpl Jordan Pierson . Cpl Pierson had been a bright spot in his platoon, in a place, that can take the softest of hearts to into a void of darkness. Even when the gloom of combat reached deep in a man soul, Cpl Pierson could bring the Marine back to a sense of purpose, a sense of why we were here, and that we were making a difference. Cpl Pierson was destined not to only be a Marine, but a leader among Marines. He fostered a sense of caring for Marines while still embodying all it meant to be a Marine. Like before, it has sent a tidal wave of mixed emotion throughout the company at a time when we were just getting through the loss of LCpl Dechen. Marines are saddened and angered as they deal with the loss that they know has not only hurt them but his family back home. Marines are here to protect the American family and Cpl Pierson was one who strongly believed in that. That no harm would befall any American as long as he had the title of Marine. He fostered such a positive spirit that it was contagious to all even to an old 1stSgt, a spirit that made people proud to do what they were doing. He carried us all through another day here on many occasions. Another cut has been sliced across the heart of every Marine here; a cut that has hurt deep, but with time will hopefully heal. A cut that will forever remind us of the Marine Cpl Pierson was. A cut that will heal, slowly over time, but we will forever look upon and remember are fallen brother until we are all once again joined and are hearts are finally mended. We miss you Jordan,  Semper Fi
