No amount of words or comments can ease the pain of your lose. But as a Marine Corps Sergeant, I can say that the service that Adam Galvez provided to this country and to the rest of the world is unmeasurable. We often take for granted those who served under our command, marines like Adam are the reason I joined; and his memory will forever be etched in our hearts and minds."
