Taylor Swift sent flowers and a personal note to the family of a fallen Marine who idolized the singer. She learned about Sergeant Wade Wilson’s admiration for her and his untimely death via a youtube video created just for her by one of Wade’s friends.

In the video, Corporal Josh Marreel says, “This is a shout out to the one and only Taylor Swift. I know you have no idea who I am but this video isn’t about me. This is about a good buddy, Sgt. Wade D. Wilson, who was killed in action Friday, May 11, 2012 in Afghanistan. Anybody that knew Willy personally knew that he worshiped you. He even slept with a poster of you in between our beds in Afghanistan.”

He requested that Taylor simply “think about him,” and he extended an invitation to her to attend Wade’s funeral in Texas.



Taylor’s note reads, “Wade, thank you for loving my music. I won’t forget it and I will never forget you. All my love, Taylor Swift.” reports that Taylor also placed a phone call to Wade’s family to ask if she could wear his dog tags in her next music video as a way to pay tribute.
