The men attached to the II MEF Injured Support Unit became instant celebrities, honored for their service and their sacrifice.

Their stories were told locally and nationally, and donations and gifts poured in.

An electric wheelchair was donated in honor of Cpl. Gary Koehler, who was killed by a roadside bomb. A Craven County fund-raiser brought in more than $40,000 to help 57 wounded travel home for the holidays. Two Marines from the barracks were flown to New York to watch the Buffalo Bills take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. Some of the Marines learned to Scuba dive, thanks to the Rotary Club of Jacksonville. Twenty-eight New York firefighters brought care packages. Cingular delivered Sony Playstations. No. 1 NFL draft pick and Richlands native Mario Williams stopped by. So did Glen Wesley of the NHL champion Carolina Hurricanes, who brought the Stanley Cup with him.

Mario is really a great guy and reminds a lot of Reggie White.

He's too nice and too much of a class act to deserve any criticism for being the #1 pick in the draft, even though I don't believe he should have been.

Still, great guy that any team would want to have on defense.

His brother in law was killed in Iraq. Williams always takes time to honor the military because he knows what they sacrifice. He is a good guy who will be a great player.
