Our Own Hero

by *LyndiLou* on May 24, 2013

Things have been a little quieter than usual on our blog and Facebook. We’ve all been trying to recover from an enormous loss.

Our Own Hero - SPC Cody Towse {PartyLand Utah Blog}

The PartyLand family lost a son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend & coworker. SPC Cody J. Towse was serving in Afghanistan as an Army Combat Medic. On May 14th, just days after his 21st birthday, Cody’s squad was attacked. Cody rushed to the aid of one of his fellow servicemen. A second explosion went off; Cody died trying to help someone else.

It’s extremely hard to know how to truly convey the sadness and heartache that comes with losing someone as amazing as Cody Towse.

It’s equally hard trying to show all the pride, honor, happiness, friendship, admiration and love that we feel for Cody… but that’s not going to stop us from trying.

Cody was such a good friend and a fun person to be around. He had a great, sarcastic and witty sense of humor. He was kind, caring, thoughtful and fun. He was a good listener, smart, helpful and hard working. He loved music, old cars, making jokes, In & Out Burger, and spending time with his family and friends. He always wanted to help. He was an EMT and a firefighter before he became a soldier. Cody thought of others before himself. He wanted to save lives and defend his country. Cody can easily be called a hero.

To help us honor Cody and his sacrifice please consider doing any of the following things:

  • Display the American flag. Cody’s Dad made a special request that we all fly a flag for Cody. If you’ve got a flag you can display at home, please put it outside for all to see. Please consider flying it for at least the next week or two. If you have one that can be lowered to half-staff please do so in honor of Cody and all those who have sacrificed so much for us.
  • Change your Facebook profile picture, cover photo, or any social media profile pictures (Twitter, Google+, Instagram, etc) to a picture of an American flag.
