We lost a great hero to The Fight Continues tonight


Back in October of last year Eric Calley had the great privilege and honor to meet Earl Pratt whom was a Iwo Jima survivor. Eric met Earl at the Ingham County Assisted Living Facility while they were first looking at Brandon’s new service puppy. Earl was a bronze star recipient for his courageous and heroic action in Imo JIma. One of the stories he shared with Eric was how two Marines were lost and Earl was one of the individuals who volunteered to help look for them and actually helped rescue them and bring them back to safety. Not only was Earl a true American Hero but his tale was also featured in a PBS documentary on Iwo Jima. We at The Fight Continues were honored to have met Earl Pratt, and we want to send out deepest condolence to his family at this time of loss and grief. It is people like Earl Pratt who serve our country so selflessly that make up the fabric of this great country.  We wanted to share the photos taken from that visit with Earl Pratt also here is a video of Earl holding Brandon’s new service puppy Gunny.
