Remembrance
Colin: A Tribute to a War Hero PDF Print E-mail

Call it a non-traditional tribute to a fallen Marine, but for Gold Star mother Amy Wolfe, it's the perfect, personal way to honor her son.  Wolfe, the artistic director of the Manassas Ballet Theatre in Manassas, Va., will stage a four-movement dance tribute in memory of Lance Cpl. Colin Wolfe, an infantryman with 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, who was killed at 18 while deployed to Iraq in 2006.

Lance Cpl. Wolfe made the decision to join the Marine Corps as he watched the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, when he was just 14.  His mother said his years of ballet conditioning — begun when he was just two and a half — gave him extra strength when he entered the fleet. In training, she said, he was once the only Marine to finish a 15-mile run without taking off his pack.

"The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this," the letter states, according to an English translation by Joan Stambaugh as found on the auctioneer's Ebay page.
