PFC Valdez is remembered by his Whiskey Battery Brothers and a student who reflects the mind of our patriotic youth...

Brave Marine,
I am a student at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois; this posting is part of the Gridley High School Posting Project. I would like to recognize that your sacrifice for this country has truly been a great one, and I want you to know you have not been forgotten. As your name lives on, etched upon this monument, so will your loyalty, honor, and courage. Your act of bravery in the service of your country will never cease to inspire young Americans like myself.
