His Star Has Turned From Blue to Gold

Cpl. Jonathan Daniel Porto, a proud Marine paid the ultimate price on March 14, 2010 in Afghanistan. His wife of one year, Mrs. P is a blogger. She is only 23 years old and they have an infant baby girl who was born in January. Cpl. Porto never held his daughter. Please take a moment and read Mrs. P's words in her blog A Little Pink in a World of Camo.

May Almighty God Bless this brave Marine. May God bring comfort to his young bride and may He watch over this sweet baby who will never meet her daddy on this earth. May the entire family who loves this warrior, know we are a grateful nation.
May Almighty God watch over and protect each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine.

oh my ~ she's right, she shouldn't have to deal with it at such a young age. It's heartbreaking but it's real and I'll be praying for comfort for them and for all those having to face similar situations.
