"It's been almost twelve years now. Your memory is as fresh as yesterday; times have change much. Charlie battery is no more and they are being re-flagged again. I think of our short time together in Kosovo and Iraq through all the blood, spit and tears with plenty of booze to wash it away. You sir were one of the Greats. Lost but never forgotten."

Although I did not know you, I knew one of the guys with you that night. The only survivor, Jeff Taylor. He told me about that night & what great guys the fallen were. Much respect & live to thoes men who lost their lives that night. With out the sacrifice of the fallen heros we could not be free. Jeff, if you read this I know you have been living in a nightmare since that night. I am so happy I was able to help shed a little sunshine in your life. God bless you & all heros of war."

"SPC Cunningham, You and I never met, until 4 April 2003. I was the Senior Medic that responded, the night your vehicle went into the canal. My crew tried extremely hard to save you, Jones and Bellard. I remember looking at your dog-tags for your information. Much to everyone's regret, that night ended tragically. During the attempts to save you and your crew, I noticed so many things... Primarily, the dedication of your 1SG. He was running around making sure that my Medics had everything they needed. He called for the helicopter and he gathered Soldiers to help us with CPR. I remember talking to him as he sat there in tears after the helicopter departed. In my 20 years in the Army, I've never seen a 1SG care more for his troops than I saw that night. Also, your fellow Soldiers were by your side through the whole thing. They were shouting words on encouragement to your crew, as we attempted to revive everyone. I know your loss is suffered by many. Myself included. Medics take losing a patient very personal, and that night I lost 3. I will remember your names and that night forever. It's the least I can do, out of respect for the sacrifices that you have made. Please know that in the final moments of your life, you were surrounded by loving caring Soldiers who were doing everything, and would have given anything to change the outcome of that night."
SFC Stephen Belair (Retired) of Leavenworth, KS

"Hey C-ham, thinkin about you as I always do around this time of year. I know God is taking care of you, and that's the only thing that can comfort us down here. But still we miss you and we will always miss you."
1SG(R) Phillip Manville & Family of Bonaire, GA

"Hey Dan, I just wanted you to know how much you are missed.Kevin and I think about you often.I still can remember when I got pregnant with Joel, You told me I needed to tell my parents or you would.You were the big brother I didnt have.We love you and miss you everyday.I am Honored to be the sister-in-law to a HERO!!!"
Samantha of Lewiston,Maine

"You were one of the best Cham I will never forget you!"
Edwards of Roanoke VA

"It's been forever since I have been here to remember you, and it is the first time I have ever written anything. I miss you like mad. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you, I see you everyday through my mother and father. We talk about the good times, it's really hard with you not being around. Alot has managed to change, C-Ham. I'm actually a Junior in High School, Kaela had a kid, His name is Greyson, and she is still with Ben! It's amazing. Ha ha. But we did what we said we would do, move to South Carolina when Chief retired, and we are still here. I love you. I miss you. You're always on my mind.

"Another year has come and gone. I think of you often. I think about how proud Daniel will be of the story of how he got his name. And of the man who so proudly gave his life trying to save the other men. I still have that $20 you gave me to put up for you. I decided to save it for Daniel and he can do what he wants with when he is older.
Love you old man and miss you!!"
June Lancaster (Allen) of dallas

"Hey C-ham that time of year where you are definitely on my mind and a whole lot of other's minds as well. Still have your photo on my fridge. It'll always be there. I know God is taking care of you Charlie Dawg as only HE can."
1SG(R) Phillip Manville of Bonaire, GA USA

"Hey bro, I don't know why it has taken so long for me to do this. But I do need you to know that I miss you so much. Since you died there are so many things that have happened. I could have used my older brother and best friend so many times. Its so hard still after all this time to know I will never laugh with you again, or cry with you again. No more beer and jokes. I can't get over it Dan. I really can't. You were everything to me and I'm forever sorry for not telling you that before. Im still so angry over all this. The pain will never go away.EVER! It was not supposed to be that way. All I can do is hope that you and Dad are together and looking down on me. Cuz I will be honest with you, I need you right now. I really do. I need you and Dad both. Show me somehow things are going to be ok. I love you Danny. More than ever could be said."

"There were times when he didn't feel full of life..........but he was.

There were times when he didn't feel successful..........but he was.

There times when he didn't feel like a good husband or father..........but he was.

There were times when he didn't feel connected to any of us..........but he was.

There were times when he didn't feel brave of courageous..........but he was.

There were times when he didn't think he was my brother..........but he was.

I wrote these words to him shortly after he passed. I hope he new how much he meant to me and how much I miss him. I hope to see my friend again one day."

My wife is a 3rd grade teacher at Eagle View Elementary School in Thornton Colorado. A few years ago the Cithy of Northglenn Colorado had a memorial in which they flew flags with the names of fallen service men and women on thier grounds. My wife received one of these flags as a gift from one of her parents which had the following message attached.
In grateful memory of U.S. Army Specialist Daniel Francis Cunningham Jr. who died on 4/4/2003 while defending liberty for you and me. We proudly fly this flag every national holiday in front of our home with the message still attached. God bless Daniel for his sacrifice and God bless you.

"I remember Danny as a little boy in our Cub Scout den (Den 4, Pack 171). It breaks my heart as I write this; he was a good Scout and, I am sure, an even better soldier and comrade. Thank you for your sacrifice."
Frank & Ann KEOUGH of Auburn, Maine, USA

"Danny and I were close friends in grade school. We lived in Tall Pines together and played street hockey and baseball together. When my family moved to Auburn, Danny would spend the night at my house. During the sleep-overs, Danny and I would play more hockey, gorge ourselves on Samís pizza, and pretend we were college roommates. Iíll never forget Dannyís easy smile, warm laughter, or that little cowlick he had. We eventually fell out of touch but Iíve often wondered what became of one of my favorite childhood friends. In April of í03, Google returned my query for Danny with tragic information. I am sad, but I am also very proud. The pain of my sadness is partially blunted knowing that Danny grew up to be the good person that I knew he always was. God bless you, Danny Cunningham. Thank you for your dedication and service to our country. My prayers are with you and your family."
Christopher S. Rosin of Boca Raton, FL

"Danny-
you were a cousin that I never knew I had until I heard the unfortunate news on the television.

At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.

for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
