I did not know your son, but I was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 and I lived in Fredericksburg when I returned from my deployment. I wanted to express my gratitude for your son's service to this country, and my deep regret at his loss. How sad that one should return from the battle field to leave us then at home, where we should be safe.

I did not know your son, and although my son served with him in the 1/9 and we live in Fredericksburg, they did not know each other. I merely want to extend my sincerest condolences to your family and pay my respects to your son. I can only offer my prayers that you find comfort and the strength necessary in this horrible time. From everything I can see, Mario was quite a young man. God bless him and you all.
