Lance Cpl. Luke Yepsen, Texas Warrior
We are United States Marines,
And for two and a quarter centuries
We have defined the standards of courage,
And military prowess.
By USMC General James L. Jones
Describes the elitism of those chosen few
Who wear the title of
United States Marine.
Luke was a young man whose life made a difference.
He personified the core values of the United States Marine Corps
From Kingwood, Texas,
A close-knit community near Houston
Luke was a graduate of Kingwood High School. He known for his big heart
And his ability to live life to the fullest.
He enjoyed traveling
And was proud to have visited 20 countries
In his short lifetime.
Luke deeply cared
About his family back home
