"Mr. and Mrs. Choi,
My name is SGT Robert Garcia From North Bergen New Jersey. I was in 6/8 Cav the same time time Min was but with a different platoon. I had the honor of meeting him a couple of times and talking about Jersey. I just recently came back from my second tour and I find myself thinking and crying at times of all the friends that I have lost. I am truly sorry for your loss and just know that my prayers are always with you and your family."

"Dear Choi Family,

My name is Jo Giles. My baby brother Landon was killed with Min. I hope you know that my family is keeping you in their prayers and thoughts. We know how tough it is. I know that Landon and Min are heroes. I thank you for giving the world a hero. His story amazes me. He was so brave and honorable to join the armed forces not even being a citizen. He is truly amazing. If you need to talk or would like to keep in touch feel free to email me celestialhoney2004@yahoo.com. Thank you again for Min and he and Landon will not be forgotten. I know how hard it is, but I hope it does bring you comfort to know that he was a true hero, and all of America thanks him and you!!"
