"Peter, my old high school buddy. How I miss our friendship and bond over our future Army careers and our love of the Tazmanian Devil! Besides our recruiter, SFC Jerry "G" Generalao, Peter was my very first Army mentor. I still have the red beret and army manuals he gave me so I could study ahead of time before I left for Basic Training. Peter graduated a year before me, and technology back then was not as amazing as it is today. I hate that we lost contact. I hate that I found out the horrible news after he was gone. I am grateful, however, that I was stationed at Walter Reed and was able to attend his military funeral. I recall learning he had a wife and a baby boy at that time. I wanted to reach out and hug Shannon and Marcus and tell them all the stories of me and Peter in high school and our love for the Army but I held back. I did what a good soldier does in uniform, and never let my emotions show. When it was over and I returned to my car, I cried my heart out, until tingles took over my finger tips and I could no longer feel them from my deep sobs. I still get tears in my eyes even now as I write this and remember that day. Fast forward to meeting my husband and having breakfast with a military friend of his. My heart sank when I learned he was the one that delivered the horrible news to Peter's family. His words haunt me. That visual haunts me. Every once in a while, I open the box in my closet and see his face on the newspaper article I saved. I see his picture or name randomly through a facebook post or random website like this and I immediately choke up. I pray his wife and son and parents have found peace as each year goes by. I wonder how that could even be possible when I struggle with it and the last time I saw him was around 1998. I think about Peter every Memorial Day and say a silent prayer in my heart for his family, especially his son. I hope Marcus is fortunate to hear how incredibly wonderful his Daddy was. RIP Peter. <3"

"Pete,

Hey buddy, I can still remember talking to you outside of our chow site in Iraq when you were in charge of making sure we washed our hands and used hand sanitizer. You were always cool to talk to and you were a great medic, I'm glad I got to know you by being in the same unit. Miss you.

Formerly Specialist Peters 1-7FA"
Rich Peters of Southgate,MI USA

"Dear Coach,

You may not remember the impact you made, but be sure that your memory is not soon forgotten.

Just so you and family are aware, some of the boys you mentored and coached, carry on your legacy of compassionate, skilled military medicine. If you hadn't provided such a stellar example of dedication and patriotism, we may not have made the decision to carry on the tradition of military medical excellence. Having spent time with plenty of Army medics, I personally have no doubt that your positive attitude and tough nature embodied all that Army medics are known for, and your family should be so proud of you and your service. While I wish that you had been able to coach and mentor young men for many years, I appreciate your sacrifice and the ultimate gift that you gave to your country.

As a Navy Corpsman, I only hope that I can carry on the legacy that you left for your wrestlers; hard work, mental toughness, positive attitude, and fair play. Your legacy lives on in the lives of those that you coached and mentored. Fair winds and following seas Coach, may the wind be ever at your back.

A CORPSMAN'S PRAYER
Grant me, oh Lord, for the coming events;
Enough knowledge to cope and some plain common sense.
Be at our side on those nightly patrols;
And be merciful judging our vulnerable souls.
Make my hands steady and as sure as a rock;
when the others go down with a wound or in shock.
Let me be close, when they bleed in the mud;
With a tourniquet handy to save precious blood.
Here in the jungle, the enemy near;
Even the corpsman can't offer much lightness and cheer.
Just help me, oh Lord, to save lives when I can;
Because even out there is merit in man.
If It's Your will, make casualties light;
And don't let any die in the murderous night.
These are my friends I'm trying to save;
They are frightened at times, but You know they are brave.
Let me not fail when they need so much;
But to help me serve with a compassionate touch.
Lord, I'm no hero -- my job is to heal;
And I want You to know Just how helpless I feel.
Bring us back safely to camp with dawn;
For too many of us are already gone.
Lord bless my friends If that's part of your plan;
And go with us tonight, when we go out again.

RIP Coach"

"To the Enos family...
Peter was one of the nicest people I have ever met. Pete and I were in high school together, I remember sitting on the floor at my house doing social studies projects! I have some great memories of him, he could always make me laugh. You should see the yearbook entries that he made in my book throughout our DHS years. Sorry it has taken me so long to write this, I never knew this site existed. My prayers to your family always."

"Dear Shannon and Marcus,

I know this is coming a long time after the fact, but that day still haunts me. You asked me once to tell Marcus of his dad, but all you need to do is read these messages. In every platoon of Medics there is always one who stands above the rest and that was Peter. I will always remember him as a Medic who always strived to be the best that he could be at his job, both tactically and technically. I could ALWAYS entrust him to get the mission done. He was the Soldier you never had to worry about because he could be trusted to do the right thing 100% of the time except of course when I gave him permission to stray off the beaten path. As a Senior Instructor here at Ft. Sam I keep Peter and all of the others who have died upper most in my mind. I push myself and my instructors to produce the BEST possible Medics. I want more Peters on the battlefield so that I know deep down inside that there will always be a Medic who stands alone as the best Medic in their platoon. Shannon you and Marcus are never far away from my thoughts and I can not say enough how much it saddens me about his loss. The United States lost a great Soldier, I lost a dear friend and you lost an awesome husband and father. Thank you so much for letting him work for me. Rob"

"To the Enos Family,
I know it has been a while since our hero has passed but he will never be forgotten. Peter was my roomate while we were deployed in Kosovo. He was not only my Soldier but also became a good friend. I remember the days we would spend talking about our families and how one day he would be a father. Peter was truly a good Soldier, Husband, Son, and a great Man. He will never be forgotten....God Bless

"Dear Marcus,
I knew your father. I served with him until he died. He and I looked at soldiering differently and disagreed more than we could ever agree. That aside I say this without hesitation, that he was the best us. He did it right...every time. You have big shoes to fill, not as a soldier but as a man. You have a great mom and an excellent example to aspire to. Your father would probably blush at the title "hero" but he was. If you ever want to know more just look for the medics from 1/7 FA that he served with we loved him and looked up to him. Good luck"

"To the family of Peter Enos, I can remember the day I met Peter in the cafeteria of Dartmouth High School. He was so excited about joining the Army that one of his friends, Jennifer Sylvia also joined. I was his Recruiter when he first joined. I remember sitting at his house with his mother convincing her and Peter that this was the best thing for him to do. Pete eventually joined the Army Reserves.

I was in Baghdad, Iraq the day he died. When I saw his name in the Stars and Stripes Newspaper, my heart fell. I went back to my hooch and felt every emotion come over me that you could possibly imagine. To Peter's Mother, my deepest apologies. My heart and love go out to you and Peters wife and child. I hope one day you can all forgive me. Maybe I shouldnt be taking the blame but here I sit wishing I never would have met Peter that day. I've lost soldiers in my platoon and lost friends that year but none hurt as bad as losing Peter. Forever mourning your loss,

"Deborah, Joseph and Shannon,

I am a neighbor, we haven't met; but Peter and my daughter rode the school bus together to DMS.

It's been two years, and I still haven't found the courage to walk up to your door and tell me how much your and Peter's sacrifice mean to me, personally.

Every time I drive by your house, I'm reminded of your loss, and I feel shame for not having told you that he remains in my thoughts constantly.

Thank you, and God bless you all, on this Independence Day, 2006."

"Shannon,
I finally found this page after 2 years of Peter's passing and never had the chance to give you my condolences. Peter was an outstanding soldier medic just as you were Shannon. Me and you were in the same platoon and you shared many many stories during Driver's Training and also when went to EFMB together. Boy did you love him. I know everyday you think about Peter because Marcus can never let you forget because he looks identical to his father. You take care of yourself and that precious boy. If you ever need anything you can always pick up a phone and call. 580-284-2259"

SPC Enos was a special soldier .a true professional who knew how to be a combat soldier as well as a medic...well he was more like a Doctor with all the knowledge he had...he could tell you what and why was wrong with while naming all these different parts of the body , leaving your head spinning! A true warrior who settled for nothing less than the best ,you and your family are in my thoughts...HOOAAH !"

"I have several friends as well as my husband who have been deployed since Operation I.F. began. To honor those who have fallen, I purchased a KIA bracelet. The "random" bracelet I received bears Peter's name, rank, and DOD. I was overwhelmed to see how many people's lives were touched by him. May God bless his family, wife, and friends."
Kelly McCormack of Norwich, CT/US

"Shannon and Marcus,
I knew Peter well. I had the pleasure of deploying with him not once, but twice. Peter and I deployed to Kosovo in the Spring of 2003 together and ended up being "battle buddies" at EFMB (Expert Field Medical Badge). Unfortunatly we both "no-goed" together too. In my 9 years in the Army I have seen very few Medics with the knowledge the Peter had. I remember seeing him during the PDP right before we deployed. He came up joking about me breaking the needles off in his "guns" as he called them. I'll never forget when I heard that we had lost another Medic. I had just returned from the memorial of another Medic and friend SGT Lee Todacheenee 1/77AR. We were told that we had a lost a Medic from 1-7FA and all I could think of was "Please no, not Enos.". When the word came down the chain that it was in fact Peter, i went numb. I went to Iraq knowing that not all of us would return, but nothing prepares you for the loss of someone so close. I cannot imagine the pain that you feel Shannon. I just want to offer my condolences and my help in any and everything. Take care.

"Dear Family,
First I would like to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I am a soldier myself and served in Iraq. I was just leaving Iraq at the time Peter passed away. I never met Peter but from what I have read on this message board I feel as if I had. For about six years I wore a POW/MIA braclet of a pilot from Vietnam. Well after many years of wear it broke. I told myself that I would get myself another bracelet, but this time it would have more meaning to me, from a conflict that I was in,to honor one of my fallen "Brothers in Arms". The bracelet I got was of SPC Peter Enos. I would like his family to know that I will wear it with pride and with honor as I did my last one. And when people ask about it as they often do, I will be able to tell them what I have learned of Peter Enos from the many beautiful comments people have made about him. He was a wonderful man and an outstanding soldier."

"To Shannon and Marcus,
I attended Dartmouth High School with Peter and we performed in Marching Band together. Peter was such a wonderful person and so much fun to be around. We lost touch after graduation, as most friends do, but when we ran into each other over two years later it was as if no time had passed. That's the type of person he was, when you were lucky enough to be his friend you were a friend for life. When I heard of his passing I cried for days. I visit his memorial whenever I visit home, next to the football field where we performed so many times together.

If Peter chose you to be his wife, you must be very special, and he will always live on in your son. As Marcus grows up and walks around Dartmouth, I'm sure he will be stopped by countless people who will share with him their fond memories of his wonderful dad."
Marni Zeman Fraga of New York, NY

"It has been a year since Peter's passing. We will never forget that dreadful phone call from Mass., telling us of Peter's death.

Rest in peace, brave soldier!"

"Dear Shannon and Marcus,

I want to let you know that I think of you often. Shannon, I still owe Marcus that letter.....I haven't forgotten. I had the honor and priviledges of knowing Peter. He was such a good person. I will never forget all the talks that we had about babies. I was pregnant at the same time Shannon was and Peter and I used to swap "milestone" stories. He would report to me that the baby was kicking or that Shannon wasn't feeling good. Peter was the ultimate medic. I will never forget the CMTC in Aug '03. Peter and I would swap supplies so that we could both meet our missions. He would always hang out in the ATLS tent trying to learn more medical stuff. It was a pleasure teaching him everything I knew. I was sure that he would someday apply to PA school in the Army. He had unlimited potential. I also will not forget the day that I was sitting at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and I read his casualty report. I was physically ill and I had to leave work. Shannon, you and Marcus will always be in my thoughts and prayers. Peter was an ultimate soldier and father."

"I wanted to give you my condolences on behalf of me and my family. I knew your husband only for a short time while assigned to HHB. He was an OUTSTANDING medic. I was fortunate enough to get my last Anthrax shot from him before we left for Iraq. We were all saddend by his passing. It's hard when a soldier you saw every morning will no longer be in the ranks of our formation when we return. He was a good guy, and a good soldier. He will be missed and never forgotten. As I sit here on R+R im eternally greatfull for the contribution and sacrifice that so many like your husband have made. May God bless your family, today and always."

"Shannon,
I am so sorry for yours and Marcus's loss of Peter. I remember when we were in the field and he would come in to the aidstation that we (299)had set up and I would ask about you and marcus. I remember how proud he was that you had a boy. The thing that saddens me the most is that he wouldn't be there to see his son walk in his father's steps of being a wonderful man. But will watching from heaven. Peter was a fellow soldier and medic. May he rest in peace. My husband was in the same battalion as peter. He is honored to have severed with Peter. Wes(my husband) and I are sorry for you and if you need anything like us know. You can email us at stephaniecurry2003@hotmail.com. Or you can call 210-824-5028. P.S.

"Shannon,
I am so very sorry about Peter. I remember when you first showed Joe and me pictures of 'your friend' Peter...we knew there was more to the story. We could see it in your eyes. It was no shock to us that you got married, or when you both re-enlisted. I thought you were both nuts..its only now that I see how much you both loved our country and what were willing to do for it. I only wish it hadn't meant we had to lose Peter. Peter is not totally lost though, he lives on through your son. I knew you'd both be excellent parents. I wish we would've stayed in contact after Joe and I broke up. You were both good friends to me... I will always be here for you. Joe knows how to get ahold of me.

It has been too long since we've last seen eachother, and I am saddened greatly by the fact that this is our most recent contact. Please know that I am here for you always. Don't ever hesitate to call or stop by if you are in town. There is always room for you here. Always room in my heart.

"I went to basic training with Peter in the summer of 1996 at Ft Leonard Wood. We bonded right away because we were both from Mass and everyone would make fun of us for our Boston accents.

***A special message to Shannon, Marcus, Deb, And Gerri. My prayers are with you, and may God Bless you always."
Shawn Rexroad of Baltimore, MD, USA

"Thank you to everyone that has sent such heartfelt messages about my husband, Peter Enos. Peter was an incredible husband and father and I loved him so very much. Peter was always the type of person one could depend on. Peter was a highly skilled soldier and medic. Most of the guys in the unit he was in often reffered to him as "Doc". Peter, as a soldier and a man, was someone that always carried out things asked of him with determination, never settling for anything less then 100%. From the day his son was born, Peter was a proud father. Whenever Marcus was brought into work Peter would carry him around and show him off to everyone. He often reffered to Marcus as his "Little Man". As a husband, I can't seem to find enough words to describe how wonderful he was. From the moment I met Peter I knew I loved him and he was my soulmate. I miss him dearly and it is such an incredible loss. I know that Peter is in heaven looking down upon us."
Shannon Enos of Dartmouth, MA

"Rest in Peace Brave Soldier. May God bring comfort and peace to your family. Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice you gave for our freedom."

"Dear Shannon, Marcus, and Family: There are no words I can find that properly express the depth of my sorrow for your loss. In the few times we got together, there was no doubt that Peter loved you and Marcus with all his heart. When I close my eyes, I see him wearing that Daddy's Tool Belt so proudly, and you both covered in baby food. I can also see how his face lit up with pride when, at the BookMark in Wurzburg, he was telling Rob and I about Marcus' latest doings. Peter was a good man and, according to Rob, a damn fine medic. He will be missed and always remembered. I am so very proud to be able to say I knew him. May God bless and keep you, Marcus, and your family always."

"Shannon, my heart aches for you and your son. Condolences seem inadequate and words seem so shallow in trying to express how sorry I am for your loss. The three of you will remain in our hearts and thoughts always. Peter, you will never be forgotten. I will always remember seeing you and Rob in the front yard of our building BBQing and enjoying, I believe, honey mead that Rob had picked up from Rothenburg. You are missed by many, thank you for touching our lives. Rest in Heaven Peter."
Tracy Cooklin of Schweinfurt, Germany
