“Cpl Medina was my soul mate, she was my better half, she was my everything. There wasn’t a single activity we didn’t do together. She changed me for the better. Before I was dependent upon alcohol and lived sedentary. After she came into my life I wanted to change for the better. I’m happy to say I am still sober to this day almost two years strong. Sara was my queen and I treated her as such. I did everything she needed she never had to worry about anything. The kind of love we had for each other is a love rarely found by human kind. Rest in peace Sara I will always love you my queen. We were to get married when she returned from Nepal and surprise everyone.” -Sgt. Devon Henderson, Cpl. Medina’s fiancé and airborne and air delivery specialist

“Cpl. Sara Medina was my roommate. She was my sister. Medina was one of my best friends. She wasn’t like any other friend I’ve ever known. She was authentic, loving, sassy and sweet. She was the kind of friend that would make you authentic barracks style Mexican food to cheer you up after a bad day. To me, Medina is a one-of-a-kind, once-in-a-lifetime person. I feel truly blessed to have been a part of her life and she will always be a part of mine. I’ll always cherish the chaotic, fun and beautiful ‘Meeller and Medina’ adventures we had. I miss her so much and I will always love her.” -Cpl. Kayla Miller, combat videographer.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download
