"To the family of Spc. Brett Tribble on Memorial Day 2014:
My son and I travelled to Long Island, NY this weekend to volunteer and run in the 7th annual US Marine Corps Cpl Christopher G. Scherer "I Did the Grid" 4 Mile Run on May 24 in East Northport, NY. This run is in honor of Cpl Christopher Scherer who was KIA in Operation Iraqi Freedom on July 21, 2007 and all the fallen who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Each runner has four names of fallen service members on their bibs. We were asked to think about and pray for each fallen hero for one of the four miles of the run. Spc. Brett Tribble’s name and service information were on my bib. It was a privilege to run in his honor. Spc. Tribble is in my heart and prayers this Memorial Day. God bless. Sincerely, Polly Papsadore"
