We were fortunate to have two of Mark’s teammates and friends with us for Thanksgiving, Johnnie Yellock II and Ish Villegas. If you’ve kept up with this site, you’ll know that Johnnie has been recovering from and IED attack from back in July. He has come a long way since then and is now putting weight on his foot and can actually put a shoe on his left foot. His recovery has been remarkable and exceptionally fast.
Ish just had surgery on his ankle from injuries sustained from his deployment in 2010. This is the first of a few surgeries for him. He plans to be able to walk in the 31-mile Memorial Birthday Walk coming up in May 2012.
This took place at Mark’s grave, and will make you appreciate their service even more.
