REST IN PEACE - WE LOSE A DEAR FRIEND
CHIEF WARRANT OFFICER GLEN BANKS, USMC
(RET) DIES IN SUSPICIOUS EXPLOSION - BURNED
OVER 90 PER CENT OF HIS BODY - ALWAYS
FOUGHT FOR THE LITTLE GUY - HIS KIND HEART
AND LOYALTY TO HIS FRIENDS AND COUNTRY
WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN - THOSE WHO DID
THIS TO HIM WILL BE CAUGHT AND PUNISHED

All of us here at MilitaryCorruption.com are mourning the loss of a dear friend and a great Marine, retired Chief Warrant Officer Glen Banks of Florida.

We are also enraged at how he died and are confident that it will only be a matter of time before those responsible for what was done to him will pay for such a heinous crime.

Because there is an on-going investigation, we won't go into details here, other than to wish the detectives working this case the best of luck and hope those who did this are under arrest as soon as possible.

A FIGHTER FOR THE TRUTH AND A FRIEND TO THOSE IN NEED

Those of us who were privileged to know Glen will never forget his kindness and loyalty to his friends and country. He was proud to have been a Marine and no one could intimidate him.

"He was always trying to help someone else," said lifelong friend Roy Bailey, who grew up with Glen in Tennessee. "Glen was a patriot. He loved life, and I know he wasn't ready to die."

After the initial blast, the retired Marine warrant officer uttered his final words: "I'm done," knowing his grievous wounds would be too much for his body or heart to take.

"Semper Fi," dear friend. You will never be forgotten.
