Wilmington, NC – In the days leading up to and on Memorial Day, WHQR News has been talking to families across North Carolina as they remember those who've dedicated their lives to serve in the US military.

Camp Lejeune's 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment lost 14 Marines in Afghanistan last summer. Golf Company was the hardest hit, losing seven Marines in just a few weeks.

For some of the Marines in Golf Company, today is the first Memorial Day when they will honor a fallen brother.
