A poem that's more valuable than any fortune was stolen from the fiancée of a fallen soldier. Julia Tapper and Lance Cpl. Matthew Rodriguez were high school sweethearts who were engaged to be married, but sadly Rodriguez was killed in action in Afghanistan last December.
"We would have talks about what might happen to him and he would always tell me not to be sad or crying," Tapper tells CNN affiliate WCVB.
Rodriguez kept a love poem tucked into his helmet so he could be close to his fiancée. When Rodriguez was killed, Tapper received the poem and carried it everywhere she went in her purse. But someone stole her purse and now all she wants is to have that original poem again.
