"Michael,
There was never a time my husband, Michael did not mention how proud he was of you and how you always made him laugh when you were around. I did not meet you for a long time and then it was in the mini-mall when you approached me and Michael about what path you should take with your career. I felt honored that you would seek our advice on something so important. I got to know you in ANCOC, and I was so impressed with your enthusiasm for your family, the Army, and life in general. I remember telling you that you needed to write a book on your experiences from Fallujah so that others could see the war through your eyes. Michael and I think of you often and pray for your family's healing. May you meet us a heaven's gate..."

"Dickinson Family:
Your sacrifice will never be forgotten. To give a family member is the ultimate contribution. While I don't support the war, I do believe that those innocent soldiers who have gone to Iraq have done so as a gesture from the heart. With that said, know that your family has set fourth a young man that understood the value of thinking with his heart and giving of himself for the sake of others. For this, you should all be commended. May God bless you."
Tiffany Owens of Detroit, MI
