Cody grew up always wanting to be a Marine. He graduated from boot camp in November, 2009 and then attended School of Infantry at Camp Geiger, NC. He was then assigned as a Machine Gunner to 2/6 Battalion at Camp Lejeune in February, 2010. Cody was deployed with 2/6 Marines Golf Co, 3rd Platoon to Afghanistan in June, 2010. Cody was killed in action on August 20, 2010 while on foot patrol.
Cody loved his country and loved being a United States Marine. He knew the Marines are making a huge difference in Afghanistan. He fulfilled his lifelong dream and he accomplished in his too short 19 years what others try in a whole lifetime. Family was #1 with Cody and the 2/6 Marines were his brothers.
