David and Joseph Forester recently had dinner with some of Mark’s teammates while he was deployed. Included in the picture are: Wes Wilson, Will Lyles, Joseph, George Earhart, David, Bobby Bonello.
These are great men who have looked evil in the eye many times and put their lives on the line each day while serving our country in Afghanistan, and other areas of the world. Will and George both suffered serious injuries during their last deployments, in the same area as Mark. Will lost both his legs, above the knees, from an IED. George was involved in another incident which broke many bones in his body only a week after receiving a concussion during a battle on the same day Mark was killed–just a few hundred meters from him. They are both making tremendous progress and we appreciate their friendship to Mark and to us.
