"Farao,
I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Air Assault!"

"I was drunk this last July 22 remembering all those from third bat who gave all and had a little too many, I kept yelling your name out loud and making a prick of myself. I excused myself from the bar and went outside to get some air, as I laid out on the hood of my FJ a cute young women began to engage in conversation with me about how “successful I must be to own a FJ”. I snapped and started beating the crap out of my hood yelling “you’re stupid tax dollars paid for this crap!” I was furious because my car was being paid for with my VA disability pension from that 2003 deployment and for all I get now I would trade everything I own for you to be here getting drunk with me. I will always remember you brother and what you did for all of us. See you when I get home..."

"In Loving Memory..Its been a year..8/5/04

At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
Rest in Peace Dear Soldier!!! We will NEVER FORGET!"
