"Coming up on 10 years since you left. I vist you at least once a year to say Hi, and to let you know that we are all doing ok. We may be getting older here on earth, but your youth and vitality keeps a spring in our step. When we, your fellow soldiers, put you in the ground, the very nice grounds keeper said that he had never saw that in his 20+ years working the graves of the fallen. It was my highest honor, and my saddest duty Lisa. We miss you. Love, SSG Gray, 1st PLT, 3rd SQD"

You will always be missed and loved"

Mike Casey of El Paso, Texas

"I really don't know how to express what I want to say. I served with Lisa overseas and got to know her best in our mobilization phase of deployment. She was beautifull in every since of the word. I hope that heaven does exist, b/c i know she fits right in as an angel. The reason I right this is b/c I hear certain songs that were played at her memorial service and i think of her. Your very much loved. And to her family, know that your daughter was and still is in all of our hearts"

"They wear the uniform
Proud and true
They protect our Nation
For me and you.

They give of themselves
So unselfishly
They leave their homes
And their families

They are on foreign soil
In a foreign land
Our men and women
Who are taking a stand

They are on guard
Day and night
They are weary for sleep
But prepared to fight

They see death and destruction
In this war torn place
But its all worth the effort
When they see a smiling face

They remember why they are there
Through all the sadness and sorrow
Its to ensure for the children
A better tomorrow


May god keep and protect the men and women who have chosen to protect us and our nation...""
Sgt Wes Campbell USMC 3/2 of decatur alabama
