"I found the story of LCpl Christopher Adlesperger while doing some research on the Battle of Fallujah. I saw your picture in your Eldorado Letterman's jacket and made me think of my son who ran XC there and graduates this year. Your bravery, honor and sacrifice hasn't gone unnoticed. I will tell as many people I know about you and how you took care of your fellow Marines. I fortunately served in The Marines during peacetime. And cause of Marines like you, I still have that freedom. To your family, my heart goes out to you even these many years later. Semper Fi LCpl Adlesperger and Thank You. I hope I can shake your hand on the other side. Oorah!"

"Chris, you were my brothers friend growing up. You were the only one out of ALL of his friends that was nice to me. You genuinely cared. I had the biggest crush on you. I still remember you coming to the door to ask for my brother and I was so taken aback because you asked how I was! You had silly yellow pants on. You were always so nice and genuine. I am PROUD that I knew you. You are so looked up to old friend. You will forever be respected for your bravery, loved, and missed."

Those videos made me really sad by watching the pain you all took for a better day in Iraq. Many of your friends out there had that bravery to do it.

I remember seeing you at Tae Kwon Do and every Sunday at church. You ALWAYS had a smile on your face and that always made me smile. I know that everyone in heaven smiling because of you. You will always be missed

Love you forever"

"Chris, I remember seeing you a few days before you left to iraq. You came to see me at work, I was so sad and in tears. Then your little brother called and told me the news, I remember it as if it was yesterday and its almost 4 years... I miss you and our late night conversaitons and arguements! I love you Christopher!!!!"
Cousins Forever of Albuquerque

"Chris you used to do your home work in my office when you where about 10 or 11 years old. I worked with your dad Gary.
I was watching a rerun of the news a 2am in the morning when I heard about you death. I always think of you as an inspiration when ever I get down over petty things. You made the ultimate sacrifice and you will be my hero and I will never forget you as long as I live. I pray for your family daily.
I have 3 sons of my own and I made them read the article about your death and heroics so they now have a huge appreciation of your sacrifice."

"Chris, thank you for giving all. God bless you and your family. <><"

"Hey Chris, I got back from Iraq about two months ago. It goes by so quick, I remember your funeral like it was the other day. We did well out there, and as about half of my deployment had gone by, I picked up a magazine at the PX there at Balad AB. I flipped through the pages, and to my shock, there you were, looking at me. I read the article, and more importantly I cut your picture out. I put it in my ID holder, and from that day on, I carried you next to my heart in combat. I know I will never be able to amount to the great man you had become in such short time, but your example, your love, and your devotion to others is an example that I hold dearly since your passing."

I would like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

"For Tamara Adlesperger(and her family),

You may not remember me, but I went to middle school with you at Desert Ridge. With it being Memorial Day, I couldn't help wondering if someone I knew from Albuquerque had fallen. I checked archives online and found your cousin's name, recognizing the last name as being the same as yours. With a little more research I found that you named your son after him, confirming you were indeed related. I just wanted to extend my heartfelt sympathies to you, Matt, and your family on this Memorial Day. My prayers are with you, and please keep safe and take care of yourselves.

"When I was in Recruit Training, one night during square away time, our senior drill instructor handed out little slips of paper, everyone got one. When we looked at them, we realized they were obituaries of Marines that had died in Iraq and Afghanistan. My slip had Christopher's name on it. It was after reading the slip that that the reality of my situation hit me. He was the same age and the same rank as me. Chris is the Marine that I am replacing. When this hit me, I made a promise to myself that I would be the most exemplary Marine possible, not for myself, but in honor of Chris and other fallen brothers like him. Christopher S. Adlesperger is not forgotten. His name will live with this Marine forever."
Pfc Simonson of Jacksonville, Florida

"Hey cuz,
I don't know who started this but it's cool. I remember the last time I saw you, you came by my house with aunty you know. Ya that was funny I was all pretending to work out in my wannabe gym, and then my phone rang and you were like that better not be a boy. ya what else like that one day I spent the day with you and we snuck out with your girlfriend to the mall and sonic and I so kicked your butt on video games. Then we tried to hide the sonic cups from my aunty, well guess what she found out anyways, even though you said she wouldn't. It's unreal to think you are gone and all it's really crazy. I miss you a whole bunch and I don't really feel like you're gone. I know my aunty misses you like crazy and always recalls how you always thought of her like a mom. She got a house now it's pretty she's doing well and we all miss you.
I'll love you forever cousin."

"Although his time here was cut short, you brought an amazing young man into this world. I think of so many young men that have chose to live their lives without purpose. It is because of your son and so many like him we can live in the security that we are protected. I know that Chris has a special place in Heaven at Gods side. My prayers go out to you from my heart. My Grandson recently finished basic training and I pray for him everyday to be under Gods care."

"To Chris' family: Chris was a wonderful person, Tiara and I would pick Chris up everyday for school in high school, he always had a smile on his face, and could always make us laugh. He has not fallen, but risen into heaven, and is an angel, as well as my hero!!! I miss you Chris, you were a real soldier, and a real hero, you changed the lives of many, you will NEVER be forgotten, I LOVE YOU CHRIS!!!"

"To Chris and his family.
I wasnt best friends with Chris but I remember him very well from High School and Track. He was a great guy, he knew how to make you laugh without even trying. He never complaind and always pushed to be his best in every way! You moved in two doors down from me (im in 235) just before he past and ill always be here if you need anything. Just ask.

We as Christians know that Chris has not fallen, but risen to be with our lord and savior, Jesus Christ."

"10/6/06

Dear Mr. Aldesperger:

I just wanted to tell you that I appreciate your son so very much. I know how proud of him you must be. I know because my son was a Marine and was KIA in Fallujah April 26, 2004. I also know how proud you are because my husband and I immediately remembered your name and remembered what a kind and gentle man you were...so very interested in how you could volunteer your services. Greg and I met you when the bricks with our son's names were dedicated at the New Mexico Veteran's Memorial.

My son rcvd. The Silver Star. Texas & NM both claim him.

We have every reason to be so very proud of them. In these ways, they will continue to bless us and so many others for generations to come-- into eternity.

God bless you for "your" sacrifice.

"To Family and Friends,

First of all I'd like to express my deepest sympathies to all of the family and friends of this heroic young man. I myself served in Operation Iraqi Freedom 1,2, and 3. I know that at times it could get frustrating out there for us and we felt like just going home. Yet it's actions like the one of this young man that kept us going. I had just recently heard of Christopher's bravery and just had to find out where I could leave some words of respect. He will never be forgotten by myself, or the rest of his brothers still serving overseas. Also to the family and freinds of this young man, you may have lost a son, but you still have thousands more whom are here for you."
Sgt Alberto Tarango (USMC) of Albuquerque, NM

"To the Family and Friends,

I read the LA Times article about Chris. What an amazing young man and Marine. Please know that there are many of us who do care and will remember the story of your son for the rest of our lives. The world is indeed a little darker with the loss of this incredible man."
Rebecca of Alexandria, VA

"I knew Chris...he was kind, smart and a hillarious guy! We went to school together and I never knew he even joined the service by the time id found out he had passed. I respect him so much for his courage. I just wanna say he was pretty much an amazing person who i will NEVER ever forget. I pray for him and his family almost every day..."
Ashley Warmington of Albuquerque, N.M

"I just read the LA Times article about Chris today, 10/3/06, entitled "His Corps Value Was Bravery." I just want to say "Thank You" to the family and "Thank You" to all the present Marines in combat for ensuring our freedom in America. God bless you all and keep you safe!!"
Dennis Vogel of Long Beach, California

"I just read the article in the L.A. Times about Chris on Oct 3rd 2006. You know I love recalling how the Marines got their knickname "Devil Dog." The Germans said they fought like dogs and they thought the Marines had the devil in them. This same fighting spirit that Marines displayed over the past 200 years is still being displayed today, and Chris is an example of this. People like Chris make the Marine Corps such an honored place to be. It's acts of heroism like Chris' that make the Marine Corps such a feared fighting force all over world. While someone like myself never served in combat, when people hear that I was a Marine I get a whole new respect from them. And so to you Chris, I thank you for making the Marine Corps such an honorable branch of service to serve in."
Steve of Los Angeles

"You Chris is what we who wear a uniform hopes to be. God bless you and your family."

"To Christopher Adlesperger's family: I read the article in the LA Times about Christopher and his journey. I wept and still weep as I write this to you to thank you.

"I did not personally know Pfc. Christopher S. Adlesperger nor have I ever seen or met him. I was very proud to have the "Healing Field" memorial team visit our City (Cathedral City Ca.) this Sept. 11 2006 and help the city dedicate a park "Patriot Park". There was nearly three thousand full size American flag representing all of the Fallen American Hero in the Armed Services. I was able to donate money to the Memorial and I was given one of the flags. The American flag I got was in loving Memory of Pfc. Christopher S. Adlesperger. Pfc. Adlesperger was I’m sure a great person and an outstanding Marine..... It brought tears to my eyes when I read his name. I wished I could have met him and gave my thanks for his bravery, dedication and service to our great country. May the Lord Jesus Christ Bless you Christopher and your family."
Police Officer Mauch of Cathedral City Ca.

"On the the 9th of Sept 2006 I was asked to get the invocation at the opening ceremony in Cathedral City, CA. This event was a four day event with a flag honoring each servicemember who gave their life for our freedom. After my prayer I got in line to take a flag to place it in the field with the others. When I picked up the flag the name PFC Christopher Adlesperger from Albuquerque, New Mexico was read. I wept. You see, I am from Albuquerque and I was a young Marine years ago before becoming a Navy Chaplain. During this war I deal daily with Marine and their families and know their Sacrifices. When Christophers name was called I wept for a man from my home town. I place his flag in the field of healing, saluted, and said a pray for him and his family. I thought you should know.

Blessings, and may God watch over you."
Chaplain David Starkey CAPT, CHC, USN of 29 Palms, CA

"I salute you!"
Angela Turman of Fort Worth, Texas

"Sperge,
We had some fun over there and it was an honor to serve with you bro. This is to you and your family, a sincere thank you for letting all of us come home and live and love. But most important showing us what sacrifice and being a true man is all about. Until we meet again bro, thank you."

"It is strange how we are all connected somehow. I work with Marine Daryl F. Brown's father, who told me about this website. I serve Veterans at the Waco VA Regional Center, and as a vet myself I always feel a pang of undescribable hurt whenever I hear that another service member has died in our war against terror. I always try to find out their names, either looking for the names of buddies still serving, or just to give them the courtesy of individual recognition. I have not one doubt that PFC Christopher Adlesperger was a fine man, and a brave one. I am sorry for his family's loss, the Marine Corps' loss, and our country's loss."

"5/1/05

Dear Mr. Adlesperger,

What an honor to meet and talk with you yesterday. I heard little pieces of conversation you had with others. I heard you ask about volunteering at the Veterans Memorial. I heard you ask about honoring your uncles with memorial bricks, and I had my own conversations with you as well. What an awesome peek at the heart of the Dad of a Fallen Marine. It's easy to understand how you raised a son to be a Marine and to give his life for others. You are honest about your pain, but use it to reach out to touch a positive note in other lives. Thank you. You are the kind of parent I could spend hours talking with. May the pain never be more than the strength that God wants to give us.

Chris we miss you and I hope you know that I will forever look up to you and what you did for all of us! one more thing...

I hope that this website will be a source of comfort and encouragement for you during this difficult time, and in the future as you recall the memories of Christopher, who continues to live on in your heart."
Tim Rivera of Powder Springs, Georgia

Honor them by remembering... Freedom - is their gift to us But his soul goes marching on
