Ian Wiseman was one of the best marines I've ever had the privilege of serving with both in combat and in garrison. He was a squad-mate mentor and always a friend,above all i will miss you

To the Wisemans, I give you my condolences. You raised a very well rounded son. He was our neighbor and he was loved by all of us, he was fixing one of his bicycles for my son, and that was very sweet. We miss him dearly and I know I can't even imagine what you are going through. I hope God can guide you through this journey. I just wanted you to know he made an impact on our lives, and was very much respected. May he rest in peace, and may you all find peace in life.
