I, of course, never knew your son.  I graduated from IUP way back in 1967 and entered the
Army then serving a tour of duty in Vietnam from July 68 to July 69.  From what I have read
about Joshua (I have a son with that name), he was an exemplary person.  I never knew him
but somehow I still miss him.  I wish I could say something to ease your grief but I am at a
loss for appropriate words.  I just want you to know that I miss your son and will think of him
often.

In Honor Of  LCpl Joshua Twigg
To the family and friends of LCpl Joshua Twigg:

My deepest sympathy goes out to you for your loss.  As a fellow Western PA'er and Marine, I
also graduated HS in 2007 and immediately went to boot camp.  I never had the opportunity to
meet Josh, but from what I have read we have a lot in common.  While I can not even begin to
imagine what you must be feeling right now, I ask that you celebrate Josh's life rather than
mourn his loss.  A Marine's life is built around the ever present possibility of death, and prior
to entering combat we almost accept that our time has already come.  Josh gave the ultimate
sacrifice for a country that will never truly appreciate what he did, but for those of us who can,
his brothers in arms; we will never forget the sacrifice he made.
