"I was stationed with Adam at Cherry Point. We met the year before he was deployed. For a brief time you could say we were actually dating. In that brief time he treated me with nothing but respect, always a gentlemen. He opened my doors for me, was a ear to listen to me, and even the shoulder I cried on several times. He was an amazing guy. When I found out he had died I cried for days. I wish there were more men like Adam. I feel incredibly lucky that I was blessed to of had him in my life even for such a brief time."

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com"

"Adam....I love you Brother. For the one's that don't know me, I was Adam's Cpl at Cherry Point for about two years. At first he was a quiet person, just taking in who everybody was, and figuring out who he wanted to associate with. After I got to know him, he was just about the nicest guy I have ever met. We met weekley and (I know it sounds dumb) played NCAA Football on playstation. We would hang out in groups of five or six and have games all day on our day's off. Never did I beat him. I spoke at his funeral in Alabama, and I didn't really have anything planned. I just got up and started talking. It was a very hard thing to do. I really just wanted to talk to him again. The one thing for those who could not make it to the funeral. As I was walking away, I looked back and noticed his two brother's holding shovels.....they wanted to bary there own. They didn't want a machine covering there brother. After a while, it was a little ruff on the brother's, and the entire group chipped in and finished the job, including me. I thought it was a very honorable thing to do, and I respect the family for that. I love you Adam like a brother, and I know one day, when the time comes, I will walk and talk with you again.

Thank You and Semper Fi"

"My heart goes out to the Fales family, and all of his friends. This was such an uncommon tragedy, that affected a lot of people. I'm friends with one of the young men that was involved in the terrible accident. I know that not a day goes by that he doesn't think of what happened, and there is nothing he can do to take it back. He would give his own life to take back what happened. I hate that something like this had to happen, and I wish that things could have been different. I heard many good things about Adam, and I hope that his family has found some peace even through this tragedy."
