"The pain of your death doesn't get easier for me. I miss you so much. Your sister and her kids keep me going along with the knowledge that we will be together again. Rest well Adam. I love you, Mom"

"Dear Adam (Punkin)-
many years have gone by but not many a day that you don't pass through my mind!
I remember the day I got home and tried to send you a message on yahoo. I was so excited because it had been awhile since we had talked. The message I received back stole my breath. Your girlfriend/fiance, responded and gave me the dreadful news. My heart sank and, for the first time, I was at a loss for words. I couldn't comprehend it nor would I believe it truely.
Memories instantly flooded my mind. And although there were tears I mainly had smiles. All of our laughs and talks and just plain sillinesses came back to me. I remember being out at the Assassins Gate, with you watching my back, while I dealt with hundreds of local Iraqi's a day. I was never worried or scared when you were there.
I remember hanging out with you at the palace that y'all lived in. Telling you about my school girl crush on Sellers and you always being supportive or just listening and laughing with me!
I'm in Afghanistan now and I know that you and a couple of my other angels are keeping me safe. I often think that you, Michael and Mark are up there watching over me! I hope my other two boys are taking care of you and you guys are having good laughs and shaking your heads at my sillinesses!
I miss you dearly my friend!

"Adam...that was my first little kid sleepover. Crazy thing...I remember Adam pulling me through our first haunted house. I was so scared, was near tears. And this young man...would go on and keep that attitude of pushing forward, not afraid. Brewer family, we think of you often, and honor Adam today. I think of him often. And now...as my career progresses, I find myself giving speeches to our young men. And here in Korea...I've told the brave story of Adam, and our friendship. His legacy ...lives on."

I ask God every night to let me but he doesn't. I wish I could see you one more time. I want to hug you and tell you I love you. I miss you so much. Mom"

"Adam, not a single day goes by that your absence is not felt in my heart. We all miss you, Your family, your sister Jennifer, your friends, Michele (your one true love), Ruben, Tony, Manuel, Sgt.

I tell your nephews, Sean and little Adam, all about their uncle Adam and how you were a hero who gave his life for the love of his country. Your about to have a new niece too! Lyla Paige will soon bless us and she too will be told all about her brave uncle Adam. I know that you are safe in the loving arms of God.

"I lost contact with Adam after high school, but sure do remember him very well. He was my first sleep over as a young boy in 1st grade there in Bartlesville. I have been in the Air Force since 2001 and learned the painful news in the Air Force Times. He is a great friend, and he is with the Lord. God Bless your family."

I am very sick with lung disease and am waiting (forever) for disability so that I can get medical help I need to get a little extra time with my daughter and her sons. I am going through grief therapy also. I just can't seem to stop missing him terribly. I still ache for him every second. But I am so proud and happy to see so many still remembering him, still caring. NEVER EVER FORGET THEM ALL! God bless you.

"Adam, I miss you, I'll always remember being by your side. Since then I've made Sergeant and I might be on my 3rd tour to Iraq. During my second I was wounded again with Arenas! What a trip huh, for us to get blown up together again. I miss you so much. Every anniversary I cry in a drunken spell. I'm still married and have 3 boys now. I wish I could see you. SGT Croley got hurt this time around. He was shot like 7 times but thank you for keeping him alive man. Watch over me dude, I miss you."

"Adam.Its been awhile since you have been gone. Every nite I lay awake in bed and wonder what it would be like if you were still here and what we would be doing and where we would be living and how different our lives would be. I never stop thinking about you. I Would do anything to be able to see you rite now. It is still hard everyday relizing that you are no longer around. I still have those tapes that you recorded when you were in Germany and Its very hard to watch them. I cant watch them as much as I like bc I see you and loose it. Its hard to see you move and talk and smile knowing that I cant hug you ever again. I miss you."

You would love him I think. I know I do!! It would mean alot if you helped watch out for him. Make sure he comes home safe.*** Found a picture of you when you was 7 I think. You was pretending to be a soldier. Just seems so ironic!!*** Well your nephews are getting big!! Sean Glenn is almost 3!! And Adam Michael is 1 year and 3 months!! Wish you was here LOVE YOU!!!"

On October 1st Albright is gettin married. All of us will be there. I wish you could be there too. You will be in spirit though. I was diagnosed with PTSD a few weeks ago. I have to go to the VA clinic for group session about once a week. It sucks but Aparently I need it. I'd do anything to talk to you again in person dude. Sometimes I think about what it would be like to be with you again. I think I'm goin crazy dude. I can't take it any more. SGT Melvin, SPC Hsia, and SGT Porter didn't make it. Tell them that I send my best and that I'm praying for their families. I miss you dude. We all do. I love you Bro."

"Adam,

I was just thinking today that it's been just over 2 years since we first got back from Iraq and we were flying home together on Space A. Remeber when we got re-directed through Dover AF Base? That was a disater eh? I think about you every day brother. I struggle daily with the thought that we won't see each other again until I leave this life. It's a long time to wait, but I will see you again. Lee's been doing alright, he's still working at McDonalds. Can you belive he re-upped? Granted it's the reserves, but I never thought any of us would ever go back in. Albright is gettin married on October 1st. So far it's looking like the whole platoon might make it. I wish you could be there with us. We'll be sure to to have a cold one for ya. We'll never forget you Adam."
SGT Robb, Joseph A. of Charlotte, MI

"Please allow me to say what is in my heart right now. It's Mother's Day and I think I have that right. This is to all of my son Adam's friends and to all of those who love and miss him. There are too many to name, but you know who you are. As I said it's Mother's Day and it is now 6:41 P.M.. I am sitting here at my computer crying because I miss my Adam so much I can't stand it. It still feels like yesterday to me that I saw that soldier standing in front of me, not having to say a word because i knew why he was there. Yet I go through each day like I'm okay but aching with pain on the inside. I have daily conversations with Adam, even griping him out for making the pictures crooked on the wall just as he did when he was with me. He knew it drove me nuts and thought it quite funny that to just slightly move the pictutes on the wall would send me into a frenzy. When ever I walk into a room and the pictures are crooked I know that Adam is still here with me. I feel him by me all the time. Sometimes I swear I can feel him touch my shoulder. It helps me so much to read all the wonderful things that his friends, and his fiance Michele say about him. I love getting the occasional notes from some of you through e-mail. It makes me feel good that you still care so much. I know, I believe with all my heart that in God's own time we will all be together again in his loving light. I look forward to the time when I can walk up to Adam and put my arms around him and hold him near me again. I know Adam, is watching over us all. Michele I love you and I know how much Adam loved you. During Adams short life God blessed him with family who loved him dearly, friends who loved him strong, and you who loved him faithfully. Thank you, I can't say it enough, thank you for loving my son, all of you. I am blessed to know you. I hope someday I can get together with Adam's fellow soldiers and reminise about him. It makes me feel close to him to talk about him. I also thank God every day for my daughter Jennifer, her husband Mike, and my beautiful grandsons, Sean and little Adam. For them somehow I will get through. I love you all. Keep in touch."

"Adam, just wanted to let you know I think about you every day, It seems like only yesterday we were in the barracks in Germany writing songs and goofing around. I still can't believe you're gone. I still keep in contact with Lee. He misses you a ton too man. Wherever you are, just remeber, we are your brothers and we always will be."

rojas of texas

"adam, not one day goes by that i dont think about you. being the last one in our DIVISION (!!!) to lose your life. i did relive that day on the 25. retracing my steps, thinking what could i have done to do it better, FASTER!! i could have gone faster and treated the others faster and gotten to you, but that means their treatment would have been for not. adam, im sorry for that. forever will i have to live with that. you know i get alot of praise for that day but it still doesnt make it better. the more they say i did a good job, the more i fall deeper in this funk. i hate it. i hate myself for not saving you. any medic will tell you that the hardest thing they will ever go thru is losing someone. but i lost more than someone, i lost a friend. you gave your life for the freedom we have now. i have now. im going back soon......and i will hold your memory close to me while i do my job. i may be a senior line medic, and not do the things i did when we were there. but i will do all i can do to eradicate all the punks that hurt you. god bless you and your family. give me strength while we are ALL there. you will not be forgotten!!!"

"I too am from Dewey, Ok and I joined the military right after High School in 00'. I was devastated when I heard the news about Adam, his sacrifice is unimaginable. I wish I could of been there for him, but I know he was around people who cared about and respected him tremendously.
Thank you, Mrs. Brewer. I can't begin to comprehend how this must feel. I pray for your family and I wear a memorial bracelet around my wrist everyday with Adam's name on it. When I deploy out again in July I will always keep the bracelet on the outside of my uniform while I'm flying so I'll never forget."

"To the family of SPC Adam Brewer, I am SFC Christopher Matthews. I was SPC Brewer's Drill Sergeant at Fort Benning, GA and his Platoon Sergeant during a portion of his first tour in Iraq. I used to tease him alot in the platoon in Germany because he was quiet. I just want to say that he was a great person and soldier. He was kind of a Drill Sergeant's dream in basic training because he did everything right the first time and wasn't any trouble, due to the upbringing he received from his family I'm sure. It's sad that the person who took his life did not get the opportunity to meet him because it would have made for a life changing experience. To whomever he left behind, know that he has passed the test that is set before us all and resides in a better place now than this world. My heart goes out to you guys and him because he is such a loss. Thanks for trusting the United States Army and myself with your loved-one and mostly for giving me and opportunity to meet and train such a wonderful kid.
Please give your troubles to God and let him carry them for you.
Thanks and God Bless
SFC Matthews"

He tried so hard to save my Adam I believe he was chosen to be the angel by Adam's side while he began his journey to God. Adam was surrounded by his friends God bless you Ruben Rojas. You are my hero"

"To Katy B. of Tulsa, Thank you so much for your beautiful words about my son. He is so desperately missed. I ache for him every minute. Someone asked me today in fact "In your perfect world, what would it be like? Would you be rich, or famous?" I said "Adam would be here". I will never stop grieving him but it helps a bit to read all the wonderful things people say about him. He was a good man. Don't forget him! Pray for them all.

"To the Brewer family,

I was doing a search on google and came upon this website. I read the many comments from the family, friends, and loved ones of Adam Brewer. I didn't know Adam and I don't know the Brewers but his untimely death touched my heart. I just wanted to say that I am truly sorry for your loss. Adam must have been a wonderful person who was taken too soon. But, he devoted his life to the service of his country and for that I am eternally grateful. Young men like Adam are very rare and should be remembered for the precious gift they have given. We can never repay Adam for laying down his life for us but we can remember his sacrifice and honor his memory. So, my prayers are with the Brewer family. To Adam: Thank you for what you have done. Your service and sacrifice embody the definition of what it means to be an American. Peace be with you."

"I wanted to tell all of you that Adam's sister Jennifer just gave birth on the 18th of August to a beautiful baby boy that she and her husband have named after my Adam. His name is Adam Michael Schoch. I know that my Adam will be forever watching over this little one as his guardian angel. Little Adam and his brother Sean will be told all about their brave uncle and how he gave his life for all of us. God bless you all and keep praying for the safe return of Adam's fellow soldiers still over seas. Karen Brewer"

"Michele, I know that my son loved you with his whole heart and wanted more than anything for you to be his wife.

I know he cherished every moment he spent with you. You will always be loved by our family."

"3/19/05

Bless your heart. I'm so very sorry for you, but I want to tell you, yes, you can make it. If your son can fight, so can you. And you do that. Dig in and hold on. Aaron was the only son I had left. He was the fun person in my life. He died doing what he loved and he fought for that man next to him. I'm praying for you. It won't ever be the same, but God willing, it will get okay until our purpose is met down here too. God be with you."

"To the mother of Spc. Adam Brewer. I just lost my only child, Pfc Landon S. Giles, on February 26, 2005 in Iraq. He was on recon patrol in Abertha, when a IED exploded. I can say I know how you feel. I don't know if I will be able to make it. Then I think what Landon would have wanted. He was my hero way before he ever joined the Army. Just as i'm sure Adam was your's. I'll keep you in my prayers. I would like to give you my e-mail address kimgiles86 @yahoo.com.
