"I served with this outstanding man overseas and was proud to do so. I can still remember that smile on his face as I was giving him fuel for his humvee and he replied," Thanks Tex". Little did I know in less than a day he went to be with the Lord. God Bless his family and friends and may he be in our hearts forever."

"I am Jose Pol, One of kevin " big edge " as we called him best friends. It has been awhile since my brother in arms passed saving myself and many others lives with courage under fire and doing what he did best, taking care of people he loved. I til this day still will never forget my buddy, i miss him deeply the night he died in my arms a part of me went with him. I can honestly say I have in combat since then and have no fear because he is and will always be the angel on my side. i love his family and love him, i struggled for along time and pushed myself to the limit to ensure i am the best not for me but for my squad fig and edge, I will always have him in my heart and will always make sure i do what he would want me to do be a good man to my wife who he told me to marry " because he said hey pol thats the best damn girl your gonna get lol "
I will continue to write on here"

"I was the Special Forces Medic that established the CCP the night Kevin died. Myself and two other 10th Mtn medics tried to revive him. I think of that night often and of the sacrifice that Kevin and others gave during that summer. God bless him and his family. May they have comfort in knowing he died a hero fighting to keep his fellow soldiers alive!

"I went through basic training in Edgin's platoon and was assigned to alpha company in Edgin's battalion and was at FOB Tillman, a couple hundred miles away, when I heard that he died. I drank with Edgin, I worked with him, and I played with him, he was a phenomenal individual. I just want you to know that the big friendly teddy bear still is remembered in North Dakota by a former infantry soldier and now a college student. Long live the brave."
Mark Thompson of Minot, ND

"I was his baby-sitter(and sat for his 2 older brothers) when I was a teen-ager. He was such a nice, funny, sweet kid and although I lost contact with his family after I married I have no doubt that he grew up to be a wonderful man.
I'm proud of him for serving but so sad that that he wasn't on Earth longer than he was.
I love you, K."
