"Hey adam i just found this page to write you.... the holidays just aren't the same w/o u here buddy! i miss you so much! i still dont want to believe your gone.... you were more than a cousin adam you were like my brother! i love you and miss you!!"
Jenni Stecher of Fort Hood , TX

"HEY ADAM!! I can find you no matter where you go. Remember when you were a freshman and we (Dad & I) hunted you down at the theater? You were w/ "Flip" and Chastity (and others). I wish I could really find you (the physical you). But I'll never really lose you b/c you'll always be alive in my heart.
But I'll always miss you-everyday. Some days more than others, especially this time of year; the holidays. It's hard to go shopping for everyone but you. I see stuff that I think you would like. Oh well! There is nothing I can do to bring you, physically, back to us but you'll be alive in my heart, ALWAYS!! I LOVE YOU, BUBBA!!
Mom xoxoxo"
Libby Fargo of Ruckersville, VA USA

"Well my friend its been more than a year now, yet I still can't believe your gone. Our section came together like youd always encouraged whenever you were around. Always the raspy voiced sound of calmness. I know I speak for all of us from your "BTB medic family" when I say we miss you.
And thanks to SGT Beavers for playing "bright eyes" (which I think Chase NEVER!! stopped playing loudly in the living quarters after you were gone) I turn in to one gigantic pile of mushy i dont know what, but its because of you, and then I come to realize what the ultimate sacrifice it was... I that it was you, but I guess the point I wanted to make was, "THANK YOU!"
You will always be in my heart and prayers"

"To the Mother and family of Adam Fargo,

I promised myself I would write and send this to you today, on the 1st anniversary of Adam’s heroic sacrifice.

My name is Michael Christian, I reside in New York City. In the early fall of last year I was doing some research for a business Powerpoint presentation I had to make. To add content to the project, I wanted to include a certain segment I had seen a the movie “Fargo.” So while checking on various site for the scene for I was looking, I came across the memorial video created and posted by Jessica S. on YouTube. And I found myself deeply saddened by the beautiful music and video images of your son Adam and the horrible story of his passing. I also then researched other site to learn in greater detail the circumstances of his loss. As well as the faces and stories of some of the other now 3000 + other “Fallen Heroes” noting that each is not just a number but each with their own families and stories.

Since then, from time to time, I have returned to the video thinking of your family on special days, like Christmas, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and of course today. On Veterans Day of last year I sent CNN’s Lou Dobbs a request that they include Adam’s video in their “Fallen Heroes” tribute. Sending my deepest prayers and thought of condolence and strength to cope. Which is why I send you this today. While I have never known the horror of losing a child, adult or otherwise, I did lose my father and my little brother to a drunk driver, among others. And I hope that within this short letter to you, I might offer some words of comfort.

I should let you also know that on Long Island for about 12 years on and off, I was a volunteer fireman and then also a full EMT-Critical Care Tech (medic).So when I learned that Adam was an Army EMT, I felt the connection. So I empathize, admire and understand your son’s drive to be a battlefield medic. To be a healer. And if it is true that there is honor in death, then sacrificing oneselve as it says in the bible, laying down your life for another, is the highest calling.

Now, I’m no religious fanatic or numerologist, but I have learned that certain numbers may have some significance. So there is another connection I could make that might offer you some comfort. I was born on June 22. And over my life I have been told repeated by different people that the numbers 11 & 22 are the numbers of ‘illumination’. So to learn that Adam was lost on the 22nd at the age of 22, may also be significant. What I mean is that maybe you might consider that while his loss it horrific, maybe the video being out YouTube may help raise awareness of the waste and horrors of war and perhaps be a catalyst towards a greater collective consciousness where resisting war or violence of any kind shall be the new paradigm. So out of your loss, his sacrifice may have meaning and may be the stuff of change. As I believe that feelings have energy, and while I leave my personal feelings of the Irag War outside of this letter to you, I hope that the video effects the world on a macro level the way it has affected my heart and mind. I hope you might find comfort in these words.

My deepest most sincere prayers and condolences to Libby, Doug, Sarah & Jason Fargo and the whole family and friends of Adam Fargo.

God Bless You All!
