    R.I.P. Lance Corporal Abraham Tarwoe

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Hundreds of mourners attended a memorial Saturday for Lance Cpl. Abraham Tarwoe, a 25-year-old Providence Marine who died April 12 from wounds he suffered during combat operations in Afghanistan.

    "His whole dream was to become a Marine," said Tarwoe's uncle, Adam Kar, who raised Tarwoe after the family fled the civil war in Liberia.

    Kar thanked the Marine Corps "for helping him achieve his dreams. You made a man out of my little boy."

    Tarwoe was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force in Camp Lejeune, N.C.

    He leaves behind his wife, Juah Kelly, and their 18-month-old son. His body will be flown on May 5 to Liberia, for burial.

    So sad, and this is not long after that RI soldier was killed saving that little girl. Back to back like that has gotta be tough on such a small state.

    Semper Fi and rest in peace, Marine.

    Prayers outbound for the family. Report to your final duty station Marine. Take post at the gates until we can relieve you.

    Semper Fidelis,

    I am not particularly brave, courageous, nor even very smart. But I am a US Marine which makes up for all my other failings. - DrZ

    "Some people live an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference in the world, Marines don't have that problem." President Ronald Regan

    DrZ is the internet name I selected in the early days at University. So keep in mind I never was a DevilDoc.
