This achievement, even though he’s looking down on us, is greater than anything I can ever experience,” Dukes said. “It’s bittersweet. Maar weer, I’m so very, very proud to say that he was my son.

It’s like he’s finally getting that recognition. He wasn’t looking for recognition, but he’s getting recognition,” said Nancy Staten, the Marine’s mother, volgens die stasie.

It was the Fourth of July in 2018 when Staten and four other Marines decided to go swimming at the Fort Leonard Wood military post in Missouri where they were training.

I’m so proud of him because he just acted unconsciously,” Dukes told Fox 45. “He just went in and his main concern was to save that person’s life, Because how many people are willing to do that? To sacrifice themselves for someone else’s life?”
