DoD Identifies Marine Casualty

Lance Cpl. Chadwick A. Gilliam, 29, of Mayking, Ky., died Jan. 3 at a U.S. military base in Kuwait. He was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Chad Gilliam is believed to have died as a result of cardiac arrest. Chad Gilliam's death from natural causes does not make his loss any less painful to his loved ones, as you will see below. Clearly, he was the object of much love.

One of his friends saw a white dove fly over on the day that Chad Gilliam was laid to rest. Traditionally, that is taken as a sign that another angel has received their wings.

God doesn't forget his better angels. Help us remember Chad Gilliam. May he rest in peace, and may his loved ones find solace in their belief that they will see him again, someday.
