Remembering Don

My family wishes to express their sincere condolences to the family and sympathy to the friends of Don Mattingly. His service as a Warrior and the many personal sacrifices he made are truly worthy or the title “American Hero”. We all thank him for defending the United States of America, her freedoms and interests. His outstanding devotion to God, Country, Family and the United States Marine Corps will not be forgotten by those who have gone before him, those who are currently serving and those who will step up in the future. Don, your mission is now complete. Stand down and Rest in Peace! “All Gave Some – Some Gave All”
