"Chris,

I will always remember you as the happy go-lucky kid across the street. I enjoyed the time we spent together, as did my father. Know, that while I too was in Iraq on that dreadful day, I wept for you when I recieved word. I was saddened and angry. I was saddened because a great person was taken far too early, and angered because I was not there to help. I saw your mother right after I got back, and we shared a tear for you brother. I will always remember you. Blue skies my brother, and may you keep the pearl gates secure until I can meet up with you again."
James Collins of Afghanistan

"I dont even know where to begin. Today i woke up and you were the first thing on my mind. Its days like these that make me sad but at the same time i remember your courage and bravery and thats what keeps me going. I havent been to your resting place in a while now it hurts too bad to go but i promise i will visit soon. There are days when i think of you and those days make me want to re join the marines and do everything thing i can to display the respect for what what you did for us. I know i will see you again one day and that day will be glorious. Until then, Semper Fi.

My heart and prayers go out to the Dixon family. God is with you."
Eric Paul of Groverport, Ohio

"Even though we went to school together I never got the pleasure to get to know you then. However in the past 2 years I have gotten to know what kind of person you was thru the wonderful stories and memories shared by Benton. He introduced me to you family and your mommy gave us pictures of you that we proudly display in our home. Not a day goes by that Benton doesn't speak of you and all the fun that him and Nick shared with you. You are brought up in every conversation we have. He knows you are watching over him. Its has been 5 years since you have been gone but you are never forgotten."
Tiffany Dean of Hot Springs, Virginia

"I attended a Harley Davidson event during the past year and recieved a Pfc Christopher Dixon dog tag. I can not imagine the grief of loosing a Son (since I am the Mother of 3 Sons) to a war or any other occurance! I pray for your Son, and his family nightly, may he rest in peace and your family rest each night in assurance that you will see him again. Thank you Christopher, for all you have given for ME, MY FAMILY and THIS COUNTRY!!!!"

"I couldn't sleep last night and found myself flipping through the channels on my TV. I turned it to A&E. I wasn't sure what was coming on. They began to show a documentary on Lima Company. I had so many mixed emotions while watching this documentary. My grand baby was only three weeks old when his daddy, Tyler Overstreet, was killed. It's been a little over one year now and the pain is still the same. My heart aches for any family who has lost a loved one or who has a loved one serving there now. I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am. I hurt for you and with you."
Donna McQuery-Welch of Gallatin, TN USA

"Christopher, i have a big soccerball magnet on my front door. it is there because my 19 year old son airman Andrew Vincent is serving over their. when i go out my front door i touch this soccerball and ask God to watch over my son. now when i touch this magnet i will pray for this family and will remember what chris has done for my family. thank you."

"To the Family of Christopher Dixon,

I had the pleasure of working with Chris. He was in my platoon before he left for overseas. I got out just before he left. He was a great Marine and loved his job. We had lots of laughs and great times. I just found out what had happend. I wish i had the chance to see him and talk to him again. He always new how to make us cheer up when the day was down. I will always hold a place in my heart for him. He was like a brother to me. He always strived to do the best in everything he done, from PT to Job practices. If you ever need anything he is still my brother in my heart and will always be. I am sorry for you lose.

"Chris,
It's been 2 years, when God took you by the hand. He took you from the battlefields of a distant, foreign land.
We celebrate your life on earth, as we look to heaven's sky. What a brave, young Marine you were, who wasn't afraid to die.
So, as we have you in our thoughts, but that is nothing new, we remember all the good times and laughter we had with you.
You'll never be forgotten, no matter what day it is. Your sacrifice you gave for all, now they know what Freedom Is!
So, my son, we miss you, for now we are apart. God has you in His keeping; We have you in our heart.

We Miss and Love You,
Your Mom, Dad & Chad"

"At a recent Harley Davidson sponsored event in Allen, TX there was a booth for an organization called Operation Once in a Lifetime that helps pay for families of injured soldiers to travel to see their injured loved one. They were handing out dogtags of those that had fallen in Iraq. I received Christopher Dixon's dogtag and I read about how he passed serving for our freedom. I now wear his dogtag proudly around my neck everywhere I go. I did not know Pfc. Dixon, but I will be forever appreciative of his service to our country for our freedom. Rest in peace Chris. Thank you and your family for your bold sacrifice. It will never be forgotten."
Chris Cook of McKinney, TX

"Semper Fi devil dog,
Almighty Father , whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose and deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Make me considerate of those committed to my leadership. Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold.

If I am inclined to doubt, steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again.

Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer.

Ill be with you soon guarding the streets of heaven"
Lcp. Chester of Columbus, OH

Life is too short-thank you for all you have done, and rest in peace!"

"Chris you made the ultimate sacrafice. You showed me, the world, and everyone you knew and were close to in your life that you are the epitome of a hero. Though I never fully knew you, I always had respect for you in every way imaginable. Almost makes me cry when I think of the sacrafice you made for me and everyone else. Though your only a memory now, that memory I have of you will last a life time. One way for me to honor you and those who I also knew who died in Iraq fighting along side you and your brothers is for me to join the armed forces. I leave for Army boot camp in june. Though it's not the marine's, I can only hope you'd respect me the way I have always respected you and your selfless duty for your country. I'll always love you man."
Shawn Knowlton of Columbus, Ohio

I think about you all the time, and laugh at our silly weight room moments. All the time, I sit and laugh and about Telfers class, haha.. we just didn't care sometimes. I miss you alot.You touched alot of peoples lives and left your mark on alot of people. I can truely say and hang my head up high, I was blessed to be your friend. God Bless you Chris, your one of gods beautiful angels now. I'll see you soon enough, until then, you be hehave up there! ;-) Miss you alot......"

"Not a day goes by that I don't think about you or what I would say to you if I got to see you again. You were the best man I ever knew and the best friend I will ever have. Knowing you almost all our lives, you were like a brother to me. I will never forget you buddy, I will never forget about the bubble gum contest when we were in 1st grade, or playing on the Magics in 2nd, or the toy gun incident in 3rd, collecting over 4,000 fossiles in 4th, the awesome basketball play we did playing on the Tarheals for HTAA in 5th grade, you getting sick off of pickels the night before our pool party in 6th, the many nights staying up late talking to girls in 7th, and the D.C. trip in 8th grade, and the thousands of memories you, Benton, and I made in High School. I will always remember the month before you left for Iraq, you and I got closer then we ever did before. I will always cherish that time with you. We all miss you so much and we all thank you so much for being a hero. The moment you and I will meet up again cannot come soon enough. I love you buddy, and like we always said in every conversation when you were gone for Iraq, I'll see you soon..."

"My name is Katie Helton, I am a Junior in high school. I had an assignment of writing a poem of something that happend last year. I decided to write a poem about a soldier in the war. I searched in a magazine and found Christopher's name and did some research. I took much pride in writting this, and I couldnt believe how much i felt as a friend of Christopher. I would just like to thank him for his heroic work, I like to think of my poem as a tribute to him. If anyone is interested in reading my poem or anything else feel free to email me at kaite_lee1@hotmail.com (yes, the email is spelled that way.)

Second, I thank you for bringing the Marine out in me, since I had been out of the corps since 1987. You are the one I looked up to even though I was the one you may have looked up to. I will continue to carry on the proud tradition of the marine corps, while keeping you in my thoughts, as I deliver your mom and dad's mail as I have for the past 7 yrs. You can't throw snowballs at me know more, but you was no good at that anyways. Chris thanks for all the great memories that we have shared and I promise you that I will look after mom, dad and Chad as a marine brother is supposed to.
