Matthew Manoukian, who died while serving in the Marine Corps in Afghanistan last August.

This is great honor befitting an awesome and honorable young man from such an awesome family that has spent decades serving the people of California. I know that his family is proud of Captain Manoukian for his service and sacrifice for this great country.

God Bless from Thailand

A fitting tribute to a brave young man. My thoughts are with the Manoukian family.

On the first Anniversary of Matt's passing we cannot figure the pain and loss we shared with our daughter in Seal Beach. The loss is heavy on all of hearts and we want you to know we will never forget the hero and saint that was in our midst and caring for each and every American. Prayers and care...............Sally and Phil Milano
