In Case You Missed This...
"Cody Green was a 12-year-old kid in Indiana who was diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old. He loved the Marines, and his parents said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps as he bravely fought the battle into remission three times.
As he struggled to fend off that infection in the hospital, the Marines wanted to show how much they respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage. They presented Cody with United States Marine Corps Navigator’s wings and named him an honorary member of the Marine Corps.
For one Marine, that wasn’t enough … so that night, before Cody Green passed away, [the Marine] took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s hospital door all night long, eight hours straight." (source)
