21 year old Corporal Stephen “Coty” Sockalosky of Cordele was killed in action on October 6, 2010. His body arrived today at Robins Air Force Base, Warner Robins, Georgia. Many of us lined the streets to pay tribute to this fine young marine.
Following the hearse, in a black SUV, rode Corporal Stephen Sockalosky’s mother. She was leaning out the window, banging on the door, and screaming, “Thank you for my Son!! Thank you for my Son!!” We wept for Stephen Sockalosky and his mother.
THANK YOU Mrs. Sockalosky for your son!

    Incredible tribute, Regenia. This same scene is played out in far too many cities as families mourn the loss of loved ones. I read the article; it put a huge lump in my throat. Thank you for posting this one, Regenia.
