Juan Garcia, platoon sergeant, 2nd Platoon, General Support Motor Transport Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group, visits with his 16-year old cousin, Diego Romero, at University of California San Francisco Children’s Hospital on April 19, 2014. Nineteen Marines with 2nd Plt. shaved their heads as an act of support to show Romero, that there is nothing wrong with being bald. Romero recently started receiving treatments for leukemia. After Romero’s parents divorced, Garcia took on an important role in raising him, and they developed a father-son relationship.
