Captain Ashley-Anne Wallace, descendant of Pvt. Lester W. Mullins, explains the backstory of her family and the importance of having a relative that was also a Marine. Mullins, Killed in action June 11, 1918, joined the Marine Corps out of Pagosa Springs, Colo., before being deployed to Belleau, France with the 6th Marine Regiment. This piece commemorates one of the many Marines Killed during the Battle of Belleau Wood, and comes on the tails of the 100 year anniversary of the battle.
