    God bless Marine LCPL Carpenter
    and his family!
    I have to say, to me, this is the most touching, heart wrenching, meaningful photo I have seen. Meet Landon.
    His father, Marine LCPL Carpenter, gave his life defending our country in Afghanistan earlier this year, a month before his son was born. Baby Landon's Mom wants his story to be known. Take a moment to share this photo with your friends and reflect on the price of freedom.

    Never forget the price of freedom.

    God bless his soul and family. Very hard to comprehend why? My own son in law got home from Afghanistan, back to his two baby girls. That picture is so moving, I have tears running down my face while I type.

    Thank you...

    I cannot express how moving this photo and story is. May God Bless LCPL Carpenter and his family! I'm sure Little Landon will grow up knowing that he has a special star shining down on him.
