    I'll never forget the day that we got the bad news, not our Claudio, a warrior to the core, there was no way, absolutely nothing he could lose We learned that you had died with your boots on, gun in hand and of the noble heroism you displayed, Not everyone can live out their dream and be completely satisfied with the life they have made Your life so full of purpose, but to us you were only lent, You laid down your life, the highest gift anyone could ever give and present, a blessing like you could only be heaven sent A man's man, a handsome face with eyes of an old soul, a loving nature and selfless ways, a one of kind that nothing or no one can ever replace Humble in nature, You were promoted to be an angel for God Nothing was by accident, it was your divine purpose to give your life for all of us, to die for your country while in service Life is never ending, I know you are exactly where you are meant to be, I have no doubt that you won't stop fighting, until we are all free Claudio, you're our hero Your sacrifice we will never forget Until we meet again my hero, Semper Fidelis, HOORAHHH!
