    Exclamation On his last journey, Marine escorted home

    Thank you, Marine Cpl. Christopher M. Monahan Jr., for your service and sacrifice to this country. RIP Mitakuye Oyasin


    On his last journey home, Island Heights Marine accompanied by special police, veterans escort

    Monahan, 25, of Island Heights, died Nov. 26 in combat in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. On Tuesday afternoon, his body was escorted home to Ocean County...

    ...In Afghanistan, Monahan was in a vehicle when it struck an improvised explosive device. He had been serving as a motor vehicle operator assigned to Combat Logistics Battalion 2, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C., according to the Department of Defense.

    It was Monahan’s third deployment overseas and his first in Afghanistan. Monahan, who joined the Marines in 2006, also served twice in Iraq. He left behind a wife, Sarah, who previously served in the Marines, and their children Kierlyn, 4, and Caleb, 2. He also has a son Nathan, 6, from a prior relationship.

    A Jersey boy... God Bless Marine Cpl. Christopher M. Monahan Jr and his family.

    “This was the least I could do for him,” said Janice Jones of Toms River, whose father was in the Navy during the Vietnam War. “I gave two hours of my time. He gave his life for our country.”

    Such simple words... off to cry now and say a prayer..
    Judgment is not about destruction, but about setting things right.

    It is heart warming to see the Patriot Guard, Veterans and the community come out to honor him.

    I wish that when both wars are over we could have a gigantic ticker tap parade in NY. Like in the old days. I don't think they have had one since WWll. I think it would be so good for our soldiers and for the entire US. I have the details worked out in my mind. Some of our billionaires could sponsor it, as a tax deduction. I know there is a lot that would need to be worked out but I think it's the least we could do for our women and men who served our country with more tours than any other wars. My condolences to the family of yet another fallen soldiers.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    It would be nice to think that right now, since when are all of our conflicts going to be over?, that folks could recognize the armed forces that are charged w/ defending our country are doing their job, whether they agree w/ the decision to do so or not, & that they are serving their country as best as they know how...put yourself in their place....& think about, & pray for, the military families that think about this, every day...

    OMG,I just today stood in a procession for a boy one town over,a marine who was killed on Dec.1 in Afghanistan. People lined the streets
    along the route. It was so moving. I think the motorcycle procession was what did it for me. His name is Cpl.Anthony Denier. He was just 26.

    Everyone one of our soldiers deserves this final escort and support. So tragic that this is still going on.
