"He really did believe in what he was fighting for." --Rhonda Rollins, mother
Welcome *who says you need a band of gold to mourn a soulmate?*, Brittney Murray, famous girlfriend of famous US Army Spc. Justin Rollins, to the club that nobody wants to become a member of. Ever.
Army Spc. Rollins was a member of the 82nd Airborne and was killed March 5, 2007 in Iraq in the village of Samarra.
Rollins is shown here holding "Hero," a puppy he found the night before he died."After Murray saw the photos, she sought help finding the short-haired dog, named Hero as a reminder of the man who planned to propose to her on his next visit home."
"It was the last bit of happiness Justin had," said Brittney Murray.
"Hero arrived Thursday night at Kennedy International Airport in New York and arrived in New Hampshire overnight."
"Rollins was buried in Arlington National Cemetery with a baseball signed by Red Sox player David Ortiz, who met him last summer shortly before Rollins's unit was deployed."
To Brittney, to Hero, to the entire Rollins family, we wish you mourning joy all the days of your lives.
