"I got to know Victor when he worked with the City of Reynolds, Ga. as a part time police officer. Victor was the most dependable person I think I have ever known. He was the type of person you could be around for five minutes and you felt like you had known him all your life. Vic died for what he believed in and he did not die in vain. A ture hero he was and his memory will never die. Rest well my friend and we will see you on the other side,"
Tim Pike of LaGrange, GA

"I was his platoon Sergeant in 2/18 Inf at Ft Benning when he was active. He also came by to see me when I was running a shop in Buena Vista...He just stopped by to say hello. I think that was about the time he transitioned to the National Guard.He was a good man and would do anything for anyone. I was proud to have known him both in and out of the service. Rest peacefully, Vic. We miss you."

"Victor was 6 years old when I first met him. I had the pleasure of watching him grow into a fine man, father and soldier. During one of our last conversations he talked about how important it was for him to fight for America. He voluntered and fought to go with his platoon because he believed it was the right thing to do. Although, he was unable to go with the first wave, he followed shortly. He never shied away from doing the right thing. Those of us who knew and loved him know what a wonderful man has been lost. He will always be remembered and will always have a special place in my heart."
Mary Anderson, Stepmother of Loxahatchee, Florida
