"There is a lot of love in the Lee family. Marc's death brought an understanding of brotherly love to those outside of the SEAl community. The grief described by Marcus Luttrell, Chris Kyle and the Job family is immeasurable. Marc will never be forgotten because his brothers in arms will never let him be. Momma Lee has more boys to love now!"

Marc was one of the best guys I have ever known. I grew up with him and he became my family. He was so kind and generous. That guy was so funny, he played the best practical jokes! I think of him everyday, and am so glad to know that he is in Heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and I will see him again some day."

"Brother, the last time we talked you just finished hell week and you could hardley speak. Then we talked later and you could hardley stop talking! All you can say was how you are loving the life and how you can't wait to graduate and do real ops. You also wanted me to come back and give it another try and go for it like we did with 239, but I told you I lost my "twitch" and I need that to be a frog. But you did it friend, and I am proud of you. I am sorry Marc that I never told you that. Now I am here in the sandbox and I think about you and the rest of the guys and hope that you are all well. Then I think about the picture I saw of you in the Navy Times and it all comes back to reality. I miss you brother and if I make it back, I promise I will visit you at Point Loma and I will bring you a cherry pocket pie and a bottle of milk. Man you used to litter the hell out of my black Maxima with those things! Every time I dropped you off at your girlfriends house in Newport during the w/ends you would make me stop and get those things! Man I hated vacuuming after your *!...man..what I would give for you to do that to my car again. I miss you brother, know that. We all miss you. To your family, my condolenses. To your wife, I am so sorry for your loss. You probably don't remember me, I was the one that dropped Marc off every week end while you guys first started dating. I am so, so, so sorry. If you need anything I can be reached on my comercial address wasylvester@hotmail.com. Marc, they have a saying on the teams about frogs that are no longer with us.."All frogs go to heaven, because god wants nothing but the best guarding the gates"..Peace be with you brother.
