Scott’s View: Justin Constantine: A Great Marine and Legacy

Scott Higgins

When I first learned of Justin Constantine's death, I was shocked and saddened. So many of our fallen men and women who served our nation deserve a long and satisfying life that many fellow veterans are fortunate to have today. 

And yet Justin's life was so much more painful. His refusal to let a sniper's bullet dictate his destiny served as an inspiration to all of us, military personnel and civilians alike. It's sad to know that others will not be able to benefit from meeting Justin.

We had the honor of hosting and honoring Justin at our company's annual holiday party. It was a festive occasion, and Justin had us all on the edge of our seats as he accepted our HeroVet award. Six years later, cancer cut his life short, but he exemplified the Semper Fi attitude of his fellow Marines right until the end.

A history of Arlington National Cemetery Military & Veterans Life Cover Story: History of Arlington National Cemetery Perfectly aligned white marble tombstones dot green hills like pearls, strung together by memories of fallen military members. That’s the sight at Arlington National Cemetery near Washington, DC, which is the resting place for more than 400,000 veterans and their dependents over approximately 640 acres on the Potomac River. This Memorial Day we remember the fallen soldiers buried at Arlington and across the nation. And this Saturday Arlington hosts the inaugural Flowers of Remembrance Day, where the public can bring flowers to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to pay tribute to the sacrifice of so many veterans.
