ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) -- Family and friends of a U.S. Marine from Indiana who died in a 2003 Humvee crash in Kuwait have marked the 10th anniversary of his death.
Lance Cpl. Matthew R. Smith's mother said during Friday's gathering at his grave at Anderson Memorial Park that she treasures her memories of him. But Patricia Smith tells The Herald Bulletin that even after a decade "the pain doesn't ever really numb."
Smith was a radio operator for the 4th Force Service Support Group out of Peru, Ind. He was 21 when he died on May 10, 2003, in a Humvee crash during a military convoy in Kuwait.
Smith died only days after writing his mother to tell her he was coming home. She learned of his death on Mother's Day 2003.
