Campaign works to thank comrades of wounded Marine

Donations for service members being collected across city

The courageous action of a sailor and three Marines likely saved the life of Corporal Tyler Huffman, whose wounds sustained during combat operations in Afghanistan have left him paralyzed.

The local Marine’s community has expressed its gratitude for his sacrifice in multiple gifts and support, including the current construction of a donated home in the 110 block of Martin Way.
