"Not a day goes by that I dont think of you my friend. It was an honor to serve with you. My daughter still remembers when you gave her that big cookie. You were so kind with my family. Miss you buddy"
Todd Tuchenhagen of Seattle WA

"It has taken me much too long to post. I trained with Kurt while we were in B Company, 5/15th Calvary, Fort Knox Kentucky. During basic training we lived in the same room. We clean together, worked together, and ate together. I remember going with him to make a few calls. I could tell his family met a great deal to him. He was my friend. After basic training Kurt and I met up at the Baghdad international airport for orientation. It was there we parted ways. A little over a week later I heard some new guys got hit. I had a rotten feeling it was someone from basic training because we all just got in country. Unfortunately, I was right. I only knew Kurt for about 5 months but it long enough to feel a sense of emptiness when I received news of his passing. I can only imagine how his family felt. Even after all this time, you are missed my friend. I would like to send my condolences to Kurt’s Family.

"To the family of Kurt R. Frosheiser:

The Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation will be honoring your loved one at the non-denominational Memorial Day Sunday worship service at 11:00 a.m. on 29 May. We will remember the casualties of the Global War on Terrorism from Minnesota … and the neighboring states of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Outside of the historic Fort Snelling Veterans Memorial Chapel will be a “Memorial Garden” filled with white crosses bearing the names of the war dead … including your loved one.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship as we pay tribute to the sacrifice made by your service member and family. Our pastor, U.S. Army Chaplain, LTC Kenneth L. Beale, Jr. will preach a message entitled “Remembering Our Freedom.” A former Soldier and country music songwriter and performer “Rockie” will pay a special musical tribute. At the conclusion of the worship hour, all of the congregation will be invited to silently pay their respects at the garden and place poppies at each of the crosses. An honor guard squad will be on hand to fire vollies as the US flag is lowered to half-staff and Taps is played.

As this Christian worship service has traditionally been well attended, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (612/970-7866) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans’ name and the number of persons attending. If you are not able to attend, we pray that you would find comfort in knowing that our prayers are with you and all of the fallen heroes.
