His wife’s original blog post, I Will Always Be A Marine Wife, is worth reading again, as is her post, Seven Hundred Twenty:
We’re sorry to inform you….
It happened. He was gone. My love, my hero, my soulmate. He’d left the earth. At some point I screamed. At some point I fell on the floor. I had to get up, I had to get to Ariana.
Thank God for that little girl who made me survive through those early days. I had no choice, I had to take care of my little girl, his little girl, our little girl.
Her blog is A Little Pink in a World of Camo, where you can see photos of their daughter, who now is four.
Along with Johnny “Mike” Spann, U.S. Army, Spc. Dennis Weichel , Lt. Roslyn Schulte and Melissa Harrington Hughes, Cpl. Porto and his family always will be remembered here, as we honor all the fallen heroes.
