Lance Corporal Dylan R. Merola’s Funeral

This fundraiser is from the Matsuoka family to raise funds for Lance Corporal Dylan R. Merola. Dylan was a beloved son, brother, grandson, great grandson, nephew, a great friend, and a brave marine who paid the ultimate sacrifice at the Abbey Gate at Hamid Karzai International Airport during the evacuation. Please help us in providing assistance to Dylan’s mother and family to memorialize Dylan as he deserves for serving his country with the highest honor.
