    U.S. Marine Corps Pfc. Evan Luisi, a native Palmerton, Pa., and a rifleman with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment (1/6), 2d Marine Division, poses for a photograph next to the casket of Pfc. Glenn White, in Emporia, Kan., Sept. 18, 2021. White was killed in action in Tarawa Atoll, Gilbert Islands, during World War II. “Being able to participate in the ceremony was an amazing opportunity; laying down my French Fourragere was a huge honor,” Luisi said. “My French Fourragere will be buried with him, to symbolize our brotherhood through 1/6. Something that I once wore will always be a part of his memory—that’s incredible, I’ll always remember that moment.”
