He thanked more than a dozen volunteers packing care packages including snacks, toiletries and hand-written notes.
Cordero said the packages received at his base in Japan were a huge boost to his team.
Definitely amazing, definitely turns the tide for not only the moral at that unit but also with that individual Marine,” Cordero said. “The work ethic and output from there just boosts up naturally because oh, someone actually does care for me.
Cordero, his wife and baby will fly back to Japan Saturday and will get back to his Marine duties.
