Vega's Brothers in Arms Flight Fund

LCPL Ruben Vega Jr, USMC, was killed in a car accident 08/04/2017. He was very much loved by everyone who met him. Ruben was known to be a joker and a prankster, but kind hearted and loyal. Ruben would help anyone in need and was considered a best friend by many. He is already missed by his Marine brothers.  

Ruben's Mothers only request, is to have his closest brothers in arms attend the funeral, all of which are in California. This fund will help cover the expenses of their flights to honor his mother and his memory at the funeral in Houston. Any leftover funds will go towards a giant Peace Lilly with a satin ribbon, saying Semper Fi, from Ruben's Marine Family.

Rest in peace Marine, your duty is done. Your Marine family's got your 6 here on earth! Semper Fi.
