    I learned of MSgt. O’Brien through seeing him in video footage of some of his heroic actions in the battle of Fallujah. Fifteen years later, I returned as a soldier in that same fight. I have the utmost respect for this man, his family, and the Marines he served with and led. Thank you for your sacrifice, brother, I will always honor your memory.
