Honoring the Gold Star Families of Marines LCpl Michael Schwarz & Sgt Matthew Fenton.

U.S. Marine Corps LCPL Michael Schwarz wanted to join the Marines since he was in the 5th grade. He acheved his goal after graduating high school in 2004. Schwarz was serving in Iraq when he was fatally wounded from injuries he suffered while conducting combat operations. He is remembered as someone who loved his country & was proud to be a Marine!

On April 26th, 2006, Sergeant Fenton was the Humvee gunner protecting a Marine convoy on the outskirts of Fallujah when his vehicle was attacked by a suicide car bomber. He died May 5, 2006 at Bethesda National Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Md., from his wounds.
