"Battle, It's been almost 11 years, yet it still feels and seems like it was only yesterday. I remember when You, Ellis, Griffin, and Me would be at Thompkins Barracks doing Boxing training on a Saturday Morning with Coach Gary Pickron.

I remember that day when Ellis and I were doing drills and you came over messing with us. We both got on your back and you stood up with both of us hanging off you like we weighed nothing. You are the coolest freckled face brother we will never forget.

Thanks for the great times and memories we shared in Germany and Iraq. You body is gone, but your spirit lives on in our hearts and minds for eternity.

Lost, but never Forgotten..

Your Friend and Team-mate..

Reggie.."

"I am not sure why I am here today but what ever it is Ducie I remember when you was a baby and I use to climb the fence to babysit you. You were like a younger brother to me. I never imaged that you would grow up and pay the ultimate sacrifice for our country. It seems like only yesterday I heard you of your sacrifice but time has healed my broken heart for you and your family. We will always remember you and honor your life. May God continue to Bless your wife, daughter, parents brother and sister."

"Lunsford this is SSG Wade aka Anthony Wade from Henderson NC. I know you went straight to heaven because you were always a great guy and Soldier. I found out about your death while I was in Iraq in 2003. I know your brother Jason was a football hero at Carolina and I know that you are a hero for paying the ultimate price. My heart goes out to your family and to all those who do not know what we have been through and go through day to day defending this country. I went to high school with you and followed you into the military sometimes I think what if it would have been me but then I think Lunsford would not want me to think that way. If your family ever needs anything and I mean anything I can be found in Charlotte NC or my mom in Henderson is listed under Pamela and Lee Hughes. Much Respect and Love... see you on the other side."

"Lunsford was one of the best guys that I've ever known. We used to argue about dumb stuff just for fun. He lived with me, Leon, Odum, Davis, and Delgado in our Tower that we claimed at Camp Victory. He truly was the gentle giant. He would play video games until he fell asleep, and keep playing them while sleeping, then wake back up and keep playing..Hilarious. The guy would play some spades. He loved being a soldier, and he was a damn good soldier. He already had his college degree and wanted to become an officer after leaving Iraq. When his daughter was born he brought home a bunch of cigars and we smoked them to celebrate. He wore a picture of his daughter on his ID band that was straped around his right arm. Brown was the proudest father that I've ever seen. I will always miss him and remember the great times and laughs that we had together. My heart and prayers go out to his family. There is not a day that goes by in my life without thinking of him. I wear his KIA bracelet on my wrist everyday and have for the past 5 years. His memory gives me strength when I feel like I have stress. For that I am thankful. I am also thankful to have known such a great man."
Ben Heidenreich of ATL

"My deepest sympathy to SPC Brown's family especially his beloved daughter. I'm sorry that I only posted this message here now. I had the honor to meet and work with SPC Brown back in 2002 in Poland. We had the same interest in japanese animation or anime for short. We would talk about a certain show and we would just talked about who is the strongest character and who we would be. I lived with SPC Brown in the same tent before we convoyed to Iraq. SPC Brown and fellow tent mates would raid my anime collection and spend the whole night until the break of day to watch it. I remember watching SPC Brown fall asleep in his chair watching my collection of anime. I laughed at him because he never did reached his bunk to lay down. SPC Brown was so proud and full of joy when his daughter was born. SPC Brown showed me his daughter's picture and I smiled because that moment we again had something in common. SPC Brown wore his daughter's picture on his arm everyday using his ID case. SPC Brown was always smiling and a good friend. Before I left A 302 MI BN, I had to opportunity to see his wife and daughter during the building memorial dedication to SPC Brown. SPC Brown, goodbye my brother and you will always be in our hearts."
SSG LAGUNDI of JSTARS DET MELBOURNE, FL

"I remember we (A/302) had just completed a month long warfighter exercise in Grafenwoehr, Germany. We got the orders to teardown, so a team of us (Lunsford and I included) went outside to take down the camo netting. Well, we were excited to get the heck out of there, so we were removing the camo poles and netting as fast as we could. In addition to our careless pace, there was a thick layer of snow covering the netting, making it extremely heavy. Well, needless to say, an accident happened. The camo netting got snagged on the top of a vehicle near Lunsford. When it was finally pried free, the netting came crashing down and hit him over the head. Lunsford immediately fell to the ground motionless. For the next 5 or so minutes, a medically qualified soldier came out to attend to him, while the rest of us just stood there in shock. Luckily, Lunsford was wearing his Kevlar helmet, however, he was passed out in a pile of snow with no coat on. Then, all of a sudden, his eyes opened up real wide. The medical attendant told him to remain still until the extent of his injuries (if any) were determined. In typical Lunsford fashion...he disregarded the instructions and rose to his feet while spouting off, "I'm too damn cold to be lying in the snow."---Lunsford was a pleasure to know and will forever be missed!"
Geoffrey (formerly known as SGT) Bellhorn of Bay City, MI

"Brown, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time brother. Just as we both know, you should have been at home on leave to see your wife and daughter, just like those same sorry souls who say they miss you. Those hypocrites who make a saint out of you are in truth cursed by you. They can hide the truth but not forever. Out at Abu Ghraib, where we really felt your loss, communing with you perhaps in deep thought on so many dark nights there, we all love you and remember you always."
S.Provance of Germany

"Brown was one of the best soldiers and people in alpha company. He was somebody who always had high morale and was someone you could go to if you werent feeling very well. He could either listen to you, or make you laugh, but in any case he was glad to do it. He had more heart than almost anyone I have ever met and the world is a lesser place without him. He is missed and always will be missed by anybody that ever knew him. To the Brown family, I am sorry for this loss, but I also know that he is in heaven looking down on the rest of us. I feel privleged to have served with such a great individual, he will be greatly missed."
SGT Chris Pazdersky of Kandahar, Afghanistan

"I went to basic training with Brown. He was a great guy...the kind of guy that made tough times more fun. I remember having long conversations with him while we polished boots on Sunday afternoons. We would just sit and joke for hours. I'll miss you, big guy!
My deepest condolences to the Brown family."
Kyle Payne 470MIBDE of San Antonio, TX

"SPC Brown will always live in the memories of those of us he touched with his huge smile, his larger-than-life laugh, and his disarming way of making you feel like you had known him forever. SPC Brown is truly a spirit that will look down on his daughter and guide her as she navigates the river of life. He is a man that has no peer; he loved life without question. He lives in my thoughts daily, and in those that he touched so deeply. Rest well, Big Man. And take care of your precious family from above."

"To fallen soldiers let us sing
Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
To the Mansions of the Lord
No more bleeding, no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
Just divine embrace, eternal light
To the Mansions of the Lord.
Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
Through the ages safely keep
The Mansions of the Lord.

I wear a band around my wrist every day bearing his name, it is my reminder that some truly give all. May we never forget our fallen heroes."
SPC Amy Parrish of Tampa, FL

"DEAR DADDY,
I am sorry you never got to hold me in your arms but I heard you kept me close to your heart. Although I never met you, I love you so much and I am very proud of you. You will always be my hero.
Love your baby girl,
AMBER"

"TO MY LOVING HUSBAND
Although it has been more than a year since you have been gone, it seems as if it was yesterday we were together. I know you will always be with us. I certainly cherished the short time we had with each other. God had another plan for you. We love you and miss you.
Your loving wife,
SHERRIE"

"It has been a year now, since SPC. Brown has been taken from this earth. I still think about him, and about the horrible tragedy on 20SEP03. If you are reading this, and haven't read these before....Please take the time to read about Brown. A real hero, not some movie actor, or some comic strip hero....This man walked through the "Valley of the Shadow of Death", and I'll be the first to tell you, that he feared no evil. Now, his courage is in all of his brothers and sisters in arms....and most importantly, his family. Amber is about a year old now, and I am sure that Sherrie can see Lunsford in her eyes...and hopefully in her smile! Still wishin' that you were here, Big Papa. We miss you."
Sean Welch of Strafford, NH....USA

"A close friend gave me a card with SPC Brown's name printed on it. Her husband prints the cards in memory of fallen soldiers, so that we will never forget them and their sacrifice to preserve our saftey and liberty.
It is an honor to observe the life and duty of Lunsford Brown II. My prayers are with his family and friends. God bless all of you."
M. Dolan of Sarasota, FL

"Where were you on that September day
When the clouds floated over oh so grey

What did you do when you heard the sound
Did you pray for your life and hit the ground

What did you think when the ringing stopped
Did you wonder where the rounds had dropped

What did you do when you heard the death toll
Did you feel a knife tear at your soul

What did you do when we didn't return fire
To kill the enemy was that your desire

Now our Brothers are long gone
All we are left with is a solemn gong

God bless our heroes who where slain
Those angels where not killed in Vain

I wrote this twenty minutes after the attack. I never wrote poetry before this day. I knew Lunsford and Travis must be forever remebered so I wrote this."
Spc. Anthony Whipkey of Leonardtown, MD

"In my town of Holliston Mass. the local
VFW is honoring the fallen soldiers in the Iraqi conflict by posting their names/ages/and home states on the local telephone polls, with American flags attached. I feel honored that the VFW has done this. And that Army Spc Lunsford B Brown ll is remembered in front of my home. My heart goes out to his family. He made the ultimate sacrifice to his country. Thank you"
Chris Hunt of Holliston Ma

"I was completely shocked the day I heard about Brown. Words cannot describe exactly what I felt. I remember Brown as always having a smile on his face and always making someone laugh. Hearing his stories about the about being a prison guard always got us going. I was in AIT with SPC Brown. He and I were PFCs at the time. He and I weren't the closest of friends but I know that he left a lasting impression on everyone in that class. God Bless his soul."
SGT Higingbotham of Ft Bragg, NC

"Specialist Brown, goodbye soldier and thank you. You are my hero."
Bill of Houston, Texas

"SPC Brown IS missed, and always will be. I had the honor of knowing him while he was assigned to the 302nd MI Bn in Heidelberg, Germany. I was with him in Kuwait and Iraq but had left before he was killed. I hope you will always remember the good he did for everyone he met. A happy spirit that is still with us. It was a great loss the day he left us. May the Great Spirit guide him always."
Craig Vaughn (ManTech) of Heidelberg, Germany

"To the family of Lunsford Brown
I had the great honor of knowing both Lunsford and his wife Mrs.Sherri Brown they were stationed here in germany along with our family. Benard as I always called him was very....quiet but he loved to joke around alot he was also soft spoken at time!! He was a big kid who loved to play with his playstation!
All the time I knew him not once did I ever hear him say anything bad about anyone!! He was a kind,"Huge Giant" with a open and giving heart!! He put his family and others before himself!! And he was a man who knew what he wanted in life!! Not only for his military status but to make it easier on his wife and unborn child!! The night I recieved the phonecall from his wife I could just feel that something was wrong but when she told me I was in total shock, and disbelief, and I instantly got a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach! In our household he will be greatly missed,his family was like family to ours!!! We plan to keep his memory alive and to stay in touch with his wife and family as much as possible.In a nutshell Benard will be greatly missed but NEVER FORGOTTEN he lives in our hearts and thoughts 4-ever"

May God strengthen you from knowing that fellow Americans and people around the world care about you and grieve with you in your loss. God bless you all. A very appreciative fellow American,"
Leo Titus of Grayslake, Illinios

"SPC Brown was someone beautiful. Always willing to help and get the job done, always willing to take time out of his day to talk to you and cheer you up, always with that big smile to make you feel better when you saw him no matter what had been going on before. One of the most beautiful things about "Big Daddy Brown" was that he was a motivator, an inspiration and never one to quit or give up. If Brown was having a bad day, that is when you knew something was really wrong, because he was always around with a positive attitude!! Amber, I can remember when your Daddy found about your mom being pregnant with you, his smile was never bigger. When we got to Iraq, all he talked about was your upcoming arrival, then you came into the world and it was announced to the whole unit that you were born and your dad was as proud as can be, he carried pictures of you and your mom everywhere. You were always with him and now he will forever be with you. Watching over you the way most parents can only dream. Your dad was a wonderful person and if I could give the blessing I had of knowing him to you, I would in a heartbeat. Sherrie, my heart broke for you and your daughter when I learned of his death. I am so very sorry."
SPC Courtney L. Sustaire of Heidelberg, Germany

"Mr. and Mrs. Brown my deepest sympathy go out to you and your family for the lost of Ducie. I was saddened to hear about him and it has been along time since we saw each other but I still remember playing with him in the backyard in Seat Pleasant, Maryland. I remember the closeness of our families. To his wife and daughter my prayers and sympathy go out to you. I too am a military spouse and understand the sacrafices that we have to make. I just pray that GOD give you strenght and when you look into the eyes of your beautiful child you will always know that your husband lives on."
Shelley (Jeter) Sims of Chesapeake, VA

"I may not have known spc. Brown, but a friend of mine was a special friend of his and he spoke very highly of him, which in turn makes me feel that he is a wonderful person, a courageous soldier, and a loving father and husband. I would like to send my deepest sympathies and condolences to the brown family and friends. I know the feeling of worry, anticipation and being afraid for your loved one. i extend all my sympathy for all the family's, that have a loved one in the war and for all the soldiers that did not make it home. I pray for all of you, as I do, for my friend that is with all of you. Keep praying, have faith in those you love and yourself, the time will come when they will come home to you, keep the faith."
TaraLeigh Celeste of n. billerica, mass. usa

"It is hard to find words to express exactly how you can feel about the loss of a loved one, of a comerade, of a friend. SPC Brown was a man that touched the hearts of everyone that he met. He gave freely of himself and anything anyone could need. SPC Brown was a very special man. You couldn't help but love his spirit or his smile. Men like Lunsford Brown are few and far between, and I know that he will be very missed by anyone that knew him. It has been a little over a month since his death, and it's still hard to accept that he won't be standing somewhere, with his easy grin and big heart...waiting to befirend anyone in need. We lost an amazing man when we lost SPC Brown"
SPC Stacey Erzen of Baghdad, Iraq

"I was only blessed to know SPC Brown a short time, but blessed I was. His mile wide smile and quick easy laugh was always there to brighten my day. And the intense pride he felt over the birth of his daughter touched everyone's hearts. Brown always made it a point to ask me how I was doing and how my own two children were, we would swap stories and pics and talk about our dreams for our children. To his daughter, I can only say that when you are old enough to understand I know you will be proud of your father. He was a true hero and loved you fiercely. When I leave this place and get to hold my children again, I know that with my tears of joy there will be tears for Brown, who held his baby in his heart if not his hands. To the Brown family I extend my deepest sympathies and pray that it eases you pain some to know that your loved one was loved and admired by all who knew him. I can make no sense of the loss of such an amazing person other than to think that Heaven must have truly needed a hero. SPC Brown, you will live forever in our hearts."
SPC Amy Parrish of A/325 MI BN, Camp Victory, Iraq

"To whoever reads this,Specialist Lunsford Bernard Brown II, was by far the most intimidating and yet gentle man I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He always talked in such a loud voice that was unmistakeable and he was a very large man. But he was always so gentle and caring to whoever he met. I have been friends with SPC. Brown since we were assigned "battle buddies" and roomates together in AIT. We opened up to each other. He told me of his beautiful wife and the child that they wanted to have. He talked about when he worked as a corrections officer before joining the Army. We used to stay up as late as we could and play Madden football all night long on the Playstaion. He sure was great at it. I don't think that there is anything on this earth that if he put his mind to it, he could not conquer. Brown was an incredable man. All of us here were touched and blessed by knowing Brown. He is surly going to be missed. To Amber....Know that your father is a true hero. Also know that he will always watch over you in anything that you do. I cannot express the deepest sadness that came over me when the worst happened. I cannot express my deepest sympathies to Mrs. Brown, and Amber, and the rest of the family. He was a perfect soldier. Always motivated and dedicated. So much in fact that nobody comes close. He will always be in my thoughts, and never, ever, forgotten. I miss you Brown, I'll never meet a better man."
SPC. Sean E. Welch A Co. 325th MI BN of Camp Victory, Baghdad, Iraq

"Lunsford Bernard Brown II (PAPA)
-Papa was one of the best friends anybody could have! We started calling him "Papa" upon initially meeting and working with him. The first activity that we all participated in together was a game of spades that Papa invited us to in Camp Virginia, Kuwait (in the middle of the night). This was the beginning of something big. It was a friendship; Papa really became a close friend to us. Papa used to always pretend to bash my (Christine) face in as a joke [because I am so tiny compared to him], so I used to imitate his actions. IT JUST WASN'T THE SAME!! When all of us used to play cards...he always sang this song: "Sooky Sooky, Now...ah huh....". This was so funny because that would mean that he and his spades partner were going to win. This song was so catchy we all started singing it. Papa used to always speak of his wife and baby girl, Amber. Before Amber was born he would talk to us about what her name shall be. After Amber was born, Papa was the happiest man on earth! He could not wait to receive the pictures; When he did, you could see the pride on his face. Soon, we will put a picture of Papa (and us) on this website. We miss u Papa!!!"

"I don't know the words to properly express what an amazing person Spc Brown was.When his little girl was born I had never seen him so happy and that says alot since he was always smiling no matter what.Amber please don't forget that even though you didn't get to meet him your daddy loved you so much.He is gone but will never be forgotten he has made a lasting impact on all of our lives in some way or another and will never be forgotten."

"I just wanted to send my deepest condolences to the Brown family. God bless and keep you all. I went to school with SPC Brown and very was saddened to find out today of his passing. While we had not remained in contact with one another since college, I do remember him and recall him being a very warm and friendly person. I pray for comfort and understanding for his family. He made the ultimate sacrifice - what a wonderful and selfless act...God bless his spirit! Peace and blessings..."
Sincerely, CPT K. Wingfield of Maryland, USA

"As a fellow soldier of SPC Brown's, I would like to send me condolences to his family back home and our Army family of the 302nd Military Intelligence Battalion. Brown was one of the best soldiers in the unit. Always there to help when you needed it and always ready with that smile of his. I am honored to have known such a great man. He will never be forgotten. To his daughter Amber, I am sorry that you will never experience the amazing man your father was, but know that you were the love of his life. You kept him going out here in Iraq, and he always had pictures of you to show around. Now your father will be able to watch over you every day of your life. Know that he is up there looking down on you and looking out for you, he's your guardian angel. Your father is one of the true heroes of this conflict, May He REST IN PEACE! We all love and miss you dearly, Brown!"
