'Will do my best,' Edmonton man vowed before his death in battle against ISIS - Edmonton - CBC News: "But he knew what he wanted and whatever he wanted he was going to do it," said Martino, explaining it had been Tassone's lifelong dream to join the army. "He's our hero. He really is. As much as it hurts, the pain. This is him, this is what he wanted."
