"I have read so many posts about Sam, and wanted to write many times but haven't. Yesterday marked 6 yrs since she was killed. Of all the soldiers killed during my units deployment I can never forget Sam. My unit had only been in country about a month when Sam was killed. I was in the HHC 126th assigned to the 504th MP BN.
I want anyone that reads this to never forget Sams and the many others sacrifice for the freedoms of the rest of us. When I came back from Iraq I was so disheartened by the fact that most Americans do not even think about the troops fighting for them. I was 30 in Iraq but the majority of our troops on the ground are under age 24.
To all Sams friends and family I am truly sorry for your loss......and from all your stories I feel like I know her well. I honestly wish that it had been me that day.......Sam had so much to give the world....."
SSG AH of USA

"Huff,
Its taken me a long time to write on this wall. I have read through many times over the years but never wrote on it. I was with you that night, right beside you. I know what the 3 of us went through and I know all of the "what if's" that run through my mind. There is not a single day that goes by that I don't think about that night. I'm so sorry you were the one that was taken but I guess its not up to us. I know you look over all of us and you know we all look up to you for being the person that you were. R.I.P."
Shaw Duvall of Tampa, FL

"My son, Capt.James "Jamie" Edge,USMC was killed by a sniper on 4-14-05, while leading his men on a mission in Ramadi,Iraq. He is buried next to your daughter, Sam, in Arlington Cemetery. I share your grief in our loss as parents & your pride in the honorable service they gave for their country. Each time I visit my son's grave, you can be sure I offer a prayer at her grave, as well. God Bless you."

"I had the honor and privilege of being Sam's Junior English Teacher at MVHS. Her grace, beauty, intelligence, and confidence always awed me. She was such a bright light; and even though she is no longer with us, her service and smile will illuminate our lives forever. My family and I were at a Fourth of July event in 2009 and we stopped to gaze at the pictures of fallen Arizona soldiers. I found Sam's photo and I teared up. My four year old daughter asked me what was wrong. How do you explain a life that was taken too quickly? I told her that Sam was a former student and that she died to protect us. Now every time we pass by such memorials my daughter says "Mama, they died to protect us, just like your student!" Thanks for your ultimate sacrifice and for protecting us Sam."
Rhonda Rowell of Missoula, MT

"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"

I will never forget the day i met you,my husband and Neally played cards every friday night at our house. I remember the day i met you (you) had your hair pulled back with the clamp in it and the most pretty eyes. Us girls joked with you because every time Neally came in the room both you guys lit up like the stars. You help me so much to realize what life is all about i will forever remember you. I bought your book and shipped it over to Angel. His unit left for iraq April of this year. Neally wasn't able to go so he is safe. You will never be forgotten girl watch over us as we always remember you. And the wonderful family you told us about I got to know them not in person but through your book. You will always be an inspiration to this world. Love"

"Hi,

I just wanted to say that I am so amazed at this womans bravery, passion and determination.

I think that she must have been one incredible young woman - the world could've done with more like her.

I had no idea before tonight that any women had died in Iraq - let alone such a gorgeous, young woman with so much to give.

I hope that the fact she gave it to a cause she felt was worthy brings you comfort in your sadness. No matter what people ever think - it is nothing but honorable to want to give your life to better the lives of others.

Im sorry for your loss.

"To the family and friends of Sam, I can't begin to express the amount of respect I have for this young lady. The grief of losing a child for any reason is the hardest thing one can imagine. My firstborn son, Bryan Christian Luckey was shot and killed by a sniper in Mosul, on June 29, 06 while on patol in a stryker with the 172nd Stryker Brigade. He got to speak to his wife the day before he was killed, which was her birthday. The day after his death, she learned that their firstborn was going to be a boy. She is naming him after his father. She became pregnant while Bryan was home for two weeks in February on leave from Iraq. Bryans' younger brother Matthew, left for his second tour to Iraq with the Marines this am. We don't always understand why God allows things to happen as they do, but one day soon, we will. The bravery, personal sacrifice, and dedication that Sam and all of our service members contribute to all people and their God is remarkable. They should make us all continue to give thanks constantly for our freedom and many blessings that God allows us daily. We thank God for the years that he gave us with our son and that he gave you with your daughter. My prayers are with you all.

In Christs' Love"

"Dear familymembers of Sam:
My name is Amber Parks. I was on leave, shopping in the tucson mall one day and a friend of mine introduced me to Sam who said she was about to go to basic training to be an MP. I gave her some advice and stories from MP training and told her good luck. A few months before I had left Iraq I saw a girl at the chow hall who looked so familiar. Someone had told me that she said she knew me. I went up to her and we started talking, realizing who she was. I talked with her a few more times, at chow, in passing. I remember one time specifically, the last time we had talked. I was going through a few personal problems and that girl, sam, has the biggest heart I have ever encountered. She was so sweet and innocent but so strong and determined. I remember thinking that I almost wanted to stay in Iraq because I thought I could have made a great friend. That's hard to do in the ARMY. I know you know your daughter is wonderful and everyone loved her. But i wanted to let you know that she touched everyone. Her sweet and powerful presence will always be remembered by anyone who she encountered. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet such an amazing person."
Amber Parks of Fort Belvoir, VA

"My beautiful friend, Sam. You are my hero, even though I couldn't be there to celebrate your life and mourn your loss with our friends...duty calls, and nobody knows that better than you. But you remain forever in my heart, and it still grieves me to this day. I came to visit you in Virginia this April past, and I was happy to find you in a place as peaceful and beautiful as that. I miss you, mon amie, more now than ever since I've married and am plowing through life with leaps and bounds. I love you, and I'll see you again some day."

"Hey, Sam:

You were the greatest leader I ever had. You were a true friend, and the example we all needed. You were my Drum Major, and you instilled your love for music in my heart. I remember the day I learned you had given your life for this country- then I learned the kind of soldier you were. You were a strong, dedicated young women full of life and love, and the world is a lesser place without you, though a better place for once having you here. I miss you...someday I'll come to Arlington to say good-bye. Until then, you are always honored and remembered.
Bye, Drum Major...Bye, Soldier...Hoo-Rah."

"PFC Huff,

Leonard Wood, MO...then we went to the same company Delta 795...we were put in different platoons...but we all remained family...and we will all remain family! even thru death! we will all see each other again one day!!!! While you were over in Iraq fighting...i was in Afghanistan... I learned of your death from Yanka...and Then saw it in the "Stars and Stripes," you will be missed very much!!! And you will always be a Wardawg!!! HOOAH!!!"

"I just learned about Sam yesterday. My Best friend BrIan was friends with her in Basic. I remember the whole time he was in basic etc how I just wanted him out there and that was all that mattered. It wasnt until i read about Sam that I thought more into it thats its not just about one person its about all of these young dedicated people that are giving their hearts and souls to our country. I only with that more people would focus their support for the troops instead of complaining about what is going on in our country. God Bless you and I am very sorry for your loss. My friend has told me stories about how great she was. May the Lord Be With You All"

"Huff, you ran and fell but always got back up and ran again even if it was on crutches. You never gave up and showed everyone what it took to become a Soldier. You are missed dearly."
Chris Beckwith (Lucky) of Edmeston, NY

"Sam, I never met you...but by all accounts you were an exceptional person. America has always been fortunate to have bright jewels like you as its sons and daughters - and it is all the more tragic that when we lose a soldier, we give one of our best. Know this: your sacrifice was not an empty or vain one. Today the people of Iraq are better off than they used to be, thanks to you and your fellow countrymen. That's what Americans do best - help others to be better than they were, even at our own expense. You will be remembered for the good you did. God Bless You and keep you close to His heart while you rest, and may He give your family comfort."
A Police Dept member of Tucson, AZ

"PFC Huff:

"To the family of Sam Huff,
As I sit here staring at the photograph of my three month old daughter, I can't believe the pain that you must have suffered on losing Sam. I never knew Sam, and only now just saw her picture as one of the fallen. She looked so young and full of life. It is tough to know in our minds how God's wisdom works. Sometimes it's just easier to be angry at him, than to trust that he has a purpose in everything for them that follow his ways. In the ultimate sacrifice that Sam gave, I pray that you fill find comfort and rest in the only one who can provide it. For this brief moment, I share in your grief, and thank you for raising Sam. She became the person she is, and was able to do all that she did in these short years because of what you invested in her. Thank you."

"TO the family of Sam Huff
I am very sorry for you loss. I lost my son Travis Burkhardt of the 170 MP CO. in Iraq in 2003 . They did not serve together but they did what they beleaved in and they are always heros. I hope you find peace knowing they are with God in a better place.But still missed!"
Kathy Shipley of Kahoka Mo kshipley@nemr.net

"Your daughter has become very special to our family. She died just four days before our own nephew, Sgt. Kenneth J. Schall, died in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
At Kenny's memorial service in Phoenix, my dad spoke of your daughter. He held up the newspaper article telling of her death. At the top of that article was just one line that gave our nephew's name and the date he was killed, May 22, 2005.
At first we couldn't figure out why he was so consumed with this young woman. During the days since we learned of his death, he spoke so often of her, almost more than he spoke of Kenny.
We soon learned that it was Kenny's wishes to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Our family traveled there with my sister, her husband, and their two other children just this last week and laid him to rest there on Wens., June 1. As the service ended we heard dad scream, "She's here. I knew she would be here. I knew they would be together." We walked over to where he was, and there was your beloved daughter's headstone. It was then I realized that in his own grief it seemed he needed to concentrate on Sam so that he wouldn't have to face the reality of having lost his own grandson.
I took a picture of her headstone. Maybe it wasn't in place when you had her service. If you would like it, it would be my great privelege to send it to you.
Please know that your pain and sorrow are shared by our family. We now know the depth of grief that you have suffered.
We thank you for the sacrifice Sam and your family have made to the service of this great country. We will pray for your family, for peace and comfort, at this time of incredible loss.
