I am a proud Son of Utah, now transplanted to Fort Benning, GA where I am
stationed as an Infantry Officer. While I rave about being from "God's
Country" (Utah), I have been slightly disappointed in the support that our
State gives troops. I had no reference until I moved to the South and really
anywhere on the East Coast. The military is REVERED down here with stores openly
publicizing military discounts and nearly every single home flying a flag or
wearing a yellow ribbon. The south loves the military! I can understand the
sentiment this American Hero expressed, but I am proud of the welcome he
received as he returned home. Lets pledge to be more patriotic, understanding
and do something that will help us never forget our true American heroes. To the Towse family, congratulations for raising a son who saw the
importance of serving his country and engaging in something bigger than himself.
I mourn your loss, but am proud to serve alongside incredible young men like
Thank you Cody Towse for your service and for giving your life that we may have
freedom. You have a beautiful family. God Bless.

friends." (John 15:13)May our loving Heavenly Father wrap you
in the arms on His love, and whisper peace to your souls during this very trying
time. May you also be comforted to know that in due time you will be reunited
with Cody once again. God bless!

From one veteran to another, thank you for your service Cody and may you RIP. To
his family, I pray for you. I have to agree with Cougar at Ft. Benning, I lived
their and the community is very supportive of the troops with discounts and a
simple "hello and thank you", when they see troops in uniform. Whether
you support the wars or not,no matter what state, please keep our military in
your hearts and support them and their families in every place they live and
