Master Sergeant Coleman - one only has to review your impressive service record to see a true warrior and hero! It is warriors such as you that epitomizes what Special Forces NCOs are all about. I once served in both 1/1 and 2/1 SFG(A) and mourn the loss as your team, unit, friends and family do. May you find peace and joy with those that went before you. Thank you for your sacrificial service!!!

I was fortunate enough to meet and roll with Mark and his crew for awhile, just before he died. It came as a shock to us on our side as well- Rest Easy, warrior.
