"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com

"Unselfishly, you left your fathers and your mothers, You left behind your sisters and your brothers. Leaving your beloved children and wives, You put on hold your dreams, your lives. On foreign soil, you found yourself planted To fight for those whose freedom you granted. Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost But you carried onward, no matter the cost. Many horrors you had endured and seen. Many faces had haunted your dreams. You cheered as your enemies littered the ground You cried as your brothers fell all around. When it was over, you all came back home, Some were left with memories to face all alone Some found themselves in the company of friends As their crosses cast shadows across the land. Those who survived were forever scarred Emotionally, physically, permanently marred. Those who did not, now sleep eternally Beneath the ground they had given their lives to keep us free. With a hand upon my heart, I feel The pride and respect my reverence is revealed In the tears that now stream down my upturned face As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace. Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid. Every day, I give my utmost admiration To those who had fought to defend our nation. ~Author Unknown~"
William Taylor of Bonita Springs, Fl.

"I may have never known you, but you are in my heart, and on my wrist. I received your name on my Remembrance Braclet and I am proud to be considered one of your comrades. Thank you for all you did for our great country.

"A REAL CORPSMAN I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU DOC!!"
LICONA of NEW YORK

"It has been over two years since Geovani passed away and I still think of him often. My only goal in Iraq that year was to bring all my guys home alive. I was, and still am, deeply saddened that I couldn't do that. I speak to the Corpsmen about him often. As long as I am in the Navy, his name and his sacrifice will not be forgotten. He was a great Sailor, an even better Corpsman and a true warrior. God bless his family and friends for their loss."
HMC Buchanan of Iraq
