"I have never met PVT Brian Grant before, however we have the same name, and we both served in the Army at the same time on the same battlefield. Finding this page was a grim reminder of fallen brothers. This hit home really hard seeing this, and wondering why the lord picked one Grant over another. I want to send my prayers and condolences to the friends and family of this true hero. You may not be with us physically, however you will never be forgotten, and your sacrifice will never go in vain. I salute you brother, and I vow to shake your hand when I ask permission to pass by your post in the heavens above."

Of course, I never imagined my life as where it is today but oh how grateful I am for having you a part of my life and my son's life. You have definitely given us wonderful memories which we will forever remember. I will see you again some day. . .Thank you again for your laughs, devotion but most importantly, your love!"
Angela of Fort Worth

"Brian it was a honor to know you. We worked side by side for several years and you are a true HERO. I think about all the fun times we had playing softball with the guys at Cintas and how we would get a kick out of your accent. You are my HERO. Thank You and God Bless You."
Terry of Louisiana

"Three years ago, My life forever changed...for selfish reasons I wished and prayed this was all a bad dream. I met your brothers of 2nd platoon (even the one with the funny accent). . .again I was quickly reminded of what once and felt the emptiness. Although, I know there are reasons, it has been difficult reminding myself of such and explaining it to Taylor. Our lives have taken a turn and often enough I find myself (and Taylor) at a loss. . .I am blessed to have been in your presence, felt the touch of your hand and the warmth of your heart. You will always be with us...no matter how far..nor how long it will be until we see each other again. Much love to you from us!"

We are keeping strong and I know that you are keeping us safe. The deployment is almost over. We all wish you were here to be along the side of us to complain about how dumb things are getting around here in Iraq since all the fighting has stopped. But you always had a better outlook on things. which was great about you. We will never forget you. Always in our memories and our hearts. We love you brother!!!!"

"I didnt know who Brian Grant was until just a few minutes ago,when thinking about Harrison,and looking up his name again.Even though I do not know Brian,it hurts to know what really happened,and how him and Meyer are connected.To the family and those who knew and loved Brian,he will always be in my thoughts.I love all my fellow brothers and sisters in arms.I love you all.Godspeed."
Grace A of Atlanta,GA

"I was Brian's recruiter in Dallas. I heard of his untimely passing just a few days after the event. It has taken me this long (10 May 2007) to post a comment about him. I will forever remember his dedication to serving and the will that he displayed on a daily basis both prior to his actual enlistment as well as during his time in the Delayed Entry Program. I knew that being a Soldier was very important to him and will always hold that particular memory very close to my heart. He was truly a Warrior and a hero in my eyes. He will be missed although his spirit will survive for eternity! A part of me is now vacant but yet his memory fills the void."
SSG(P) Biggins of Ft. Hood, TX, USA

"I'm not a big believer of the afterlife or anything like that but just want too share a little story, Brian was a good friend of mine growing up, and one of my biggest regrets is losing touch with him once he moved from staten island. I'm a sanitation worker for the city and was doing the route by brian's house I was really thinking about him and talking too him as I was on the back of the truck in my head as I past his house on amboy as I got to the corner by the train station I emptied a full litter basket as I put it back down one little yellow card flipped down to the bottom of it and in big red letters it said RED on it,which is what I always called him ,I picked it up and it was for a phone card , know like I said i'm not a big believer but the more and more I thought about it what was the odds of this happening a block past his house , and like I said the basket was full when I emptied it for this one little card too stay in there and the way it flipped down were it said Red , If it would of flipped the other way I never would of even noticed it because it only had writing on one side. Anyway don't know if it was a sign or coincedence but just wanted too share it with you. Miss you bri and will never forget you"
John lombardo of Staten island

"I worked with Brian at the Dallas based Cintas corp. The week of September 11, Brian was absolutely livid about the terrorist acts against not only his country, but his home state. He vowed that week to go fight for his country, and he did. Brian was a true American. He loved his Country, his family, and his friends. He always had a good story to tell, and we never stopped laughing. I'm very proud to say I knew Brian. But don't morn for Brian, because if you could talk to him, he would tell you that he died for something he loved. America, Freedom, Family, and Friends. If there were no Brian Grants, there would be no U.S.A. God bless you Brian. God bless your family. Keep an eye out for us, and we will see you soon. God bless America!"
