Patterson was one of several troops whose ‘death gratuity’ was withheld by the Obama Administration during  the partial government shutdown. The Fisher House charity stepped up to pay for Patterson’s funeral arrangements.

“Pfc. Cody Patterson was the poster child for the Ranger Regiment,” said Lt. Col. Patrick J. Ellis, Commander of 3rd Bn., 75th Ranger Regiment. “He was courageous and dedicated and lost his life while fighting tenaciously against our Nation’s enemies alongside his fellow Rangers. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Patterson family.” –
