I am honored to call this man my hero! Lcpl Alfred Vizzari served two combat tours in Afghanistan as part of the 1/2 and 1/6 Marine Corps Infantrymen. After losing my dad on foreign soil back in 2005 (OIF), words can't express how happy I was to have my better half arrive home safely after his last deployment... This was the best day of my life. -Kenzi

This here is my dad, he was killed in 2004 in Afghanistan. He was the greatest man I knew! Some night say I was a bit of daddy's girl. He has inspired me to go forward with all my dreams and never look back unless it was to smile not be past. I love you daddy! And miss you everyday! R.I.P SSG James Douglas Mowris -Kenzi M.
