"While I was at Northeastern State, my roommate in college was actually a Marine Corp reservist, so he kind of, once he got mobilized and he started doing his tours and the towers fell, I knew at that point that I wanted to go ahead and join the service," said SSgt. Shane Codding, a Copan native.

"And because of him, I joined the Marine Corp and from there it's just been an incredible experience.  I love what I do and I'm proud to be out here doing what I do."

Codding has been on five deployments including in Iraq and Afghanistan.
