Dad Of Camp Pendleton Marine Killed In Car Crash Wants Stolen Photos Back (Video)

Marine Dad Wants Photos Of Late Son Returned

The father of former Camp Pendleton Marine Gregory Courtney, who was killed in a September 2011 car crash, is pleading with the burglars who stole videos and photos of his late son to return them.

Greg Courtney, 22, died just weeks after finishing his tour with the Marines and returning home to Michigan.

His dad, Joe Courtney, told the Kalamazoo Gazette that burglars entered his home in Allegan, Michigan, on November 15 and took a digital camera filled with photos of Greg, along with video tapes of his late son.

He's asking the burglars to return the personal mementos - with a promise he will not press charges.

Michigan television station WOOD-TV also interviewed Joe Courtney, and I've posted that heart-wrenching video up top.
