Soldier Memorial on Tailgate
This week I was stopped at a traffic light on Harrison in East Lansing when I saw this tailgate in front of me. Best I can tell, it says, “In memory of LCPL Justin M. Ellsworth USMC” . Lance Corporal Ellsworth died in the line of duty in Fallujah, Iraq.
At first, I wasn’t sure that the tailgate memorial was something the family would want publicized, but then I thought it seems they want us to know the name and face of their loved one, who made the ultimate sacrifice.
