"LAST TIME"

The last time I saw you, I didnít know.
Itíd be the last time, that Iíd see you go.
In the back of my mind, were always some fears.
Today they came true, thereís proof in my tears.

Iíve always known, that life has an end.
God is my strength, but tonight, not a friend.
I know that His word, is faithful and true.
But did he not hear, when I prayed for you?

So many things that I never said.
No more the dreams of what lies ahead.
I canít call you in to eat supper tonight.
Wish time would turn back and make everything right.

Pictures and dreams still guard your wall.
Pencil mark records of when you grew tall.
Clothes in a closet, that youíll never wear.
Tears soak your pillow as I lay here and stare.

Your room is now empty, like never before.
No more the hope, that youíll walk through the door.
They say youíre a Hero... That should bring me joy.
All that I want ..... to hold my little boy.

"My wife and purchased a painted portrait at a thrift store recently. We had no idea of the whom and why's of the painting. After research we have found out it is a memorial painting done by Kaziah Hancock. The painting is of Sgt. Donald Walters, U.S. Army. We don't know the circumstances which led it to the thrift store but if any of his family would like to have it, we would like to donate it."

"Dear Ray,

I only learned about you a couple of days ago from your beloved sister, Layla. This Memorial Day therefore means quite more to me. Curiosity led me to this wonderful site where I learned about you as a valiant soldier, a great career person and a real man. We are so fortunate to have people like you serving our country, and for this we are infinitely indebted to you to be also good people, to serve our country and our fellow human beings to the best we can. Belated, or perhaps not so since only heaven may know, love and respect to you!!!"

"SSG Ricky Crockett was a great man. He was always a leader I could look to when things weren't going right or I needed an honest answer.

After all these years I still miss him and hope his family understands how special he was to many of us."

My thoughts and prayers are with you daily. Love you!!!!!!!!"

"Love you brother... most days I think about you and what life would be if you were still here. Would we be raising cattle at grandpa's like we talked about?? Would we visit the frog pond every year like I do?? would that place hold such meaning to me? Or would I take it for granted like most people take their loved ones for granted?

"The Whole Armor of God

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God?s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we[a] are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God?s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God?s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.[b] 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil.[c] 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.[d]"

Just when I thought I was strong and could look at your pictures without crying, my heart ached again from missing you. You are not forgotten cousin, I love you and I miss you.

What a shame on her part what your son is missing knowing bout you. I bet shes collectting the money from the army, and not filling any "remorse" doing that. Or over not letting hers and your son know of the great man that helped giving Aaron jr. life. Plus what a HERO his daddy is and was!!!!!!!!!!!!1"

"Guarding the Gates of Heaven
For my son, Marine Ssgt. Joseph Fankhauser (EOD tech) KIA 4-22-2012
By Mary Wyscarver

She remembers as a boy, tanks and guns were his toys
In her mind she always knew, he?d be among the chosen few
Joined the Marines right out of school, tried to live by the golden rule
Four times in Iraq on foreign land, two more tours in Afghanistan
Answering his country?s call, all gave some but some gave all
It?s been twelve years since nine eleven, now he?s guarding the gates of heaven

His mother prayed every day, that evil would not come his way
Not just for him but others too, for those who serve red, white, & blue
Boxes packed for all the troops, yellow ribbons tied up in loops
Bumper stickers on the car, flew the flag in her front yard
Reminded others: Don?t forget, POWs aren?t found yet
It?s been twelve years since nine eleven, now he?s guarding the gates of heaven

After church one day in spring, she would hear the doorbell ring
Uniformed men that numbered three, that?s when her heart fell to her knees
She cries softly by the stone, God is near-- she?s not alone
Sees blank walls awaiting names, knows other fates will be the same
It?s not over for you see, Freedom is NOT free
It?s been twelve years since nine eleven, now they?re ALL guarding the gates of heaven"
Mary Wyscarver of Temple, Tx.

"Wow.. over 10 years now. Eddy.. so much that you were destined to be. You passed as HERO.. you should see your CRAZY cousins. I see them daily on FB.. and you would be laughing.. I assure you. Your service to our country is AMAZING.. you are still playing with TOY SOLDIERS in my memory.. Wow.. where has the time gone.."

"I miss my uncle so much. Thanks for all the comments and to my little cousin or cousins we looking for you so don't ever think your family forgot you!"
jennifer summers of IL

"10 years ago is a day I will never forget. On March 23, 2003 1SG Robert Dowdy traded in his BDU's for a new assignment in Heaven. I worked as the Battalion S-1 for 8 years of my military career and I met a lot of soldiers during my military career, Robert Dowdy is one who will remain in my mind for as long as I wake up each day. He didn't just lead by example, he was the example and I know that he taught a lot of soldiers how to do the same. It was an honor to know him and serve with him for many years. To Robert's family, may God and Robert continue to look out for you from above. There are truly not enough words to express your loss, his memory lives on and his words I still hear in my head. God Bless."

"He followed footsteps
wherever he would go
and won the battles he played with G.I.Joes
But this war was real
He bravely faced the battlefield
showing what a man
that young boy could yield
He fought with all his honor
He fought with all his might
He gave his LORD his spirit when he stepped in this fight
And in his dying hour LORD we know where we will be
Walking home to HEAVEN humming songs of jubilee"

Flying Hero


You came home yesterday.
On that silver winged bird.
It wasn't that long ago that you left.
You are back so soon.
But you have done so much.
The colors you are wearing, so familiar.
The colors explain everything.
Why you left, the price you paid, the sacrifice you made.
Pride. Honor. Freedom.
You have made your mark hero.
The colors you wear draped over your casket tell your story.
You did it for me.
You did it for our country.
You did it for FREEDOM.
You will never be seen as a fallen hero.
You will forever fly proud.
As will the colors you died for."

"Good Afternoon Sir, and a Warm Hello to my Marine Brother. Its been a long time since I red about or spoke to any of U. I remember like yesterday, waking up in the morning in Camp Penalton, getting ready for formation with all the Devil Dogs, preping for the day kick off, with SSgt. Nerad and LT. Childress at the front of formation. I remeber us being a Big family, with its usually minor difficulties but we were proud. There is not a day that passes that I don't think of LT. Childress and Gunney Bohr, there guidance, leadership and there willingness to do the right thing. I still follow these characteristics to this day or try too at least. I was about 4 to 5 feet away from Lt. Childress, when we were attacked. I will never forget you Sir, or any of my brother from ALPHA 1/5. Somehow reading some of these messages makes me feel like you are still leading us, connecting us all somehow. I can recall the platoon, I was LUCKY enough to serve on. I think some times that a part of all of us will alway be there, in Iraq, when reading some of each other thoughts. Even though we have gone separate ways and time has past, it helps to know we were trained & lead by a man who away gave his all, never took short cuts and wasn't afaid to say we here,.. I have faith that one day we will all meet again, for Now! Thank You Sir and Thanks to my MARINE Brothers, God Bless all of your Families. I'd like to say hello to all of all of 2nd squad and 2nd Platoon, ODOM, Kawalski, Wetzel, Enarino, Espinosa, Brown, Mercer, Morgan, Wright, Etc,...U to Lamb, also to the marines from 1st,3rd and 4th Platoons,..Once a MARINE AWAYs a MARINE!..SEMPER FI from the heart to all of U."

You're not alone,just follow me,and calmly take a breath,and when those first few rounds scream by,and your body halts with fear,remember the men on your left and right,and the man bringing up the rear.For they are scared ,don't want to die,and miss their mothers too,but without a thought would jump in front,so that a round would not hit you,and when you see your brothers dying where they lay.Just remember....Heaven has a special place for men who die this way,and if i should fall here today ,and we shoould not speak again. It has been an honor;you are my sons;my brothers-in-arms;my friends.For those who make it through this day,remember...this is where some stayed.Pray for their souls and teach your children about the price they payed.Now follow me men,it's time to go.I'll lead you the whole way in.Just be brave and carry on....we'll all meet up again.

"My Dying Brother
As i hold you in my arms,some things you just must know.You are my brother my flesh and blood, i'm not ready to let you go.your eyes connect with mine,as the color leaves your face.This precious time we've had together could only be by God's grace.Your faint attempt to smile as if telling me it's okay.Will repeat inside my thoughts and dreams every single day.Your grip on my shoulder begins to loosen as the life begins to drain.Then looking off into the sky you call your mother's name.I hold you tighter in my arms,my eyes well up with tears.Why not me instead of you, is something not quite clear,and finally just seconds before his final breath was through.

He told me that he was torn between the Navy and the Army and I tried as hard as I could to convince him the Navy was the way to go, but anyone that knew Tony like I did knew he was a hard head! I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm scared to visit his resting place..... because I feel guilty about not doing something about him joining the Army! This is something that has weighed on my concience for the longest time! Anthony is my brother and always will be, I wish I was better with words but brutal honesty will have to work for now!

I am a patriot who heard the call

I could be the kid you knew next door
The one you don?t see around anymore

Maybe you have wondered, where did he go
It?s sad to say, you just don?t know

You have seen me many times before
Never knowing I went off to war

Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me on TV
But did not know I?m who keeps you free

If you have trouble with my name
Remember, I do my job and seek no fame

People call me a hero of late
But I think it?s always been my fate

And if I see God?s bright light
I know my sacrifice was right

I am an American who stands proud and tall
I am patriot who heard the call
I am a Soldier and that is all"

"It is always hard to loose someone especially when you know them. I was in Tomas' platoon. We were in 4th Platoon. He was in 2nd squad and I was in 3rd. I remember he used to sit outside his tent and smoke. Sometimes i would stop and talk to him. Tomas was always full of energy and pleasant to talk to. Like a-lot of other soldiers who were there, I still remember the day our convoy was IEDed. I heard on the radio of a KIA and wondered who of the three passangers it was. SSG Balli, Sgt Ramon, and Tomas were the ones in the gun truck. Its weird how a grown man can cry uncontrolabely but that is all I and everybody around me could do. Sgt Vega took it especially hard because he was one of the medics that tried to save Tomas. I will never forget you Tomas and I will make sure my son understands your sacrifice when he grows up. God Bless You."

Even then I knew he was going to be something special....And now we are laying to rest one of his best friends Tommy Ratzliff who was killed in Afghanistan Aug 6 with his Seal Team.

"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die."

"First Class Ride Home
-By John Harris

The hours have been long
And the work has been hard

I?ve missed you all so much
And cherished every card

Amidst all this chaos and distraction
I managed to complete my given task

The final test of teamwork and dedication
I most assuredly did pass

They praised me for a job well done
And said that no one could have done it better

They?re giving me some kind of award
And even wrote a letter

Trips that have kept me far from home
Are now all in the past

And to show their appreciation
I?ll be flying home first class

More care, respect and attention
I have never known

For until today
-Coach is all that I have ever flown

As my plane eventually touches down
And you all gather at the gate

Others have gotten off
But I still have to wait

As I finally disembark from this my very first- first class ride

You see me, and the tears begin to fill your eyes
-Not tears of happiness but tears of strength and pride

For as a final gesture
And a truly first class sign

They have draped my Nation?s Flag
Above my house of pine"
John Harris of Armada, Michigan

"Words can not begin to thank you and your loved ones for the ultimate sacrifice you have given for your country and countrymen. If it were not for the soldiers, sailors, Marines and flyers over the centuries, America and Amercan's would not have the freedom they have today. Neither would the rest of the world. Thanking you and your family for the sacrifices you have all made is not enough, we need to take more interest in who we elect, the laws and legislation that is made and always stand behind our men and woman in service to their country.
