Cody came from a long line of patriots who served this great country. He was a dedicated soldier and a true patriot. His service was inspired by his Papa, a Vietnam veteran, and his father, a West Point graduate and Desert Storm veteran.

Cody’s dedication to serve inspired both of his younger brothers to follow in his footsteps and serve in the U.S. Army. Both served honorably and continue to honor their brother in all that they do.
