Thank you Shana—our Country loves you and especially loves your beautiful boy, Kareem. – President Donald J. Trump

Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui (Age 20)

Kareem, a 2019 Norco High graduate was described as a “strong person,” who “held no grudges,” and had “a love for kids,” Pastor Phil Wozniak said. The fallen Marine’s mother told Wozniak that he’d gone back to save a child when the bomb went off.”
