"CPL Don Fisher, not a day goes by that you don't come to mind. You are the only Soldier I lost. You will always be remembered by me and so many others. It was a great day when you came to my platoon at FOB Endurance. At first I was pissed the Top changed the platoons so far into the deployment, but it didn't take long to realize what a great Soldier and person we I was given. Don, you will always be with me in thought and prayer. You will not be forgotten my brother."
SFC(RET) Prekker, Roughriders of Montgomery, Alabama

"To Donalds Family, I knew Donald for many years when he lived in Brockton. Being younger, I never fully understood the concept of war. Now that I am older, I see what tragedy it brings among families and friends. Something any girl remembers for life is her first kiss. Donald was my first kiss. We would walk, and talk all night about goals and dreams we hoped to achieve. Hearing of his death not only brought sadness, but also a sense of resentment for this war. He always told me he wanted to be in the army, serve our country, and fight for freedom. He died doing what he wanted to do. I will never forget the nights we played PS2 at my friend Amanda's, or the picture he gave me for my birthday. He was one of a kind, a sincere and loving person. My prayers are with his family, and all the troops he served with."
Ashley Elizabeth Cutler of Wareham, MA USA

"To Donald's Family, I am so sorry for you loss. You are in our prayers. To you Donald, you sir are a true American Hero. You will always be remembered and honored. Thank you for all you have done in Iraq and in keeping us safe at home. May God bless you Donald and God Bless your family."

"I wanted to find some words,
That would help to get thru it when life gets so hard.
It seems you can’t bear it – perhaps can’t go on –
When deep in the heart there’s no trace of a song.

Some words that would comfort –
When late in the night the trials return and –
You’re to tired to fight.
Or the tears flow so often it seems you’ll run dry.
And life gets so tough that you just want to die –
Or at least go and hide –
Where you’re safe from all the pain.
Someplace you can rest ‘til you find joy again.

What are the words you so need to hear –
That will help and will heal and remove all the fear –
That builds up inside ‘til you think you’ll explode –
What are the words that will lighten the load?
If only I knew the right words to say.
To encourage and Bless you or comfort you some way.
I know not the word but this I can do.
I shall offer up Prayers to the Father for you.

Gone – but not forgotten.
Thank you for sharing your marine with us,
and for the sacrifice made by you and your family on our behalf.
Proud mom of Lcpl Alex
Currently serving in Iraq"
Patricia of Bishop, CA
