This weekend, we remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Guys like NJ wrestling legend Ryan Ianelli of Kingsway, who died in a combat operation in Helmand, Afghanistan, on September 28, 2011, about ten years after 9/11.
We always remember the heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms, especially on days like Memorial Day.
Ryan Iannelli was a graduate of Kingsway High School. He was assigned to Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 269, Marine Air Group 29, 2nd Marine Air Wing, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Marine Corps Air Station New River, N.C.
He was posthumously promoted to Captain.
Iannelli fought, so we didn't have to.
Thank you, Ryan, and to all the others who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
