We honor one of our fallen.  I don’t have Zarians correct rank from the press releases. I will update once I am notified of Rank and warfare classification.

    I served two tours in Iraq with 3/1…I didn't know you, but my heart is honeslty heavy. I got out of the Marines maybe a year and some change ago and now regret it because of things like this. I hear of people getting killed and out of anger I want to rejoin and go back to fight along side of great Americans like yourself. You are never forgotten brother. To the families of 3/1: thank you for supporting your loved ones overseas; although at times it is tough, in the end it is all an unselfish act that was done out of thier own will to keep this country great. Unfortunately, you have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Semper Fi Marines and Sailors and keep fighting hard and thank you. 3/1 Hard

    My heart goes out to his family and friends. My corpsman son just got these a couple of weeks ago and I my heart skipped a beat when I heard of this. I can't imagine getting this news. How very proud his family must be of him. May he rest in peace.

    I never met P.O. Wood, but I just got back from PB Jaker,Nawa District in Dec with 4th CAG,1/5 Charlie, but I believe Zarian was one of our reliefs.

    Zarian, may you rest R.I.P. and guide our brothers at FOBs Apache,Cherokee/PB Jaker,Delhi,Delarum,Fiddler's Green,Geronimo, and every other area.

    I didn't personally know Petty Officer Woods but I was at Bagram, Hospital when he passed on. I saw many patients working at the hospital but he was the one that stuck out the most and touched my heart in so many ways. My prayers go out to his family, friends and unit.
