Upstate Marine honored for final act of service

Katie Romano says her brother Nick always wanted to serve this country. The Greer graduate did that with two tours in Iraq. After returning home Nick was killed in a motorcycle accident. Katie says Nick had talked about wanting to donate his organs and his family knew this would be a way for something positive to come out of the tragedy. Nick was able to save several lives through the gift of life. The United Network for Organ Sharing just unveiled a Fallen Soldier Donor Memorial in Richmond, Virginia honoring those whose final act of service was the gift of life.
