"SGT Lisk, not a day goes by that I don't think of you and our short time together. I still hear your voice as you 'yell' at the targets we were engaging during training in Graf. You were always the one who lifted everyone around you when it got rough. You will always be with us. My heart goes out to your family. It was my honor to volunteer and see you home. I will never forget you, my friend."

"Hi my name is

SSG Shannon i was terry lisk's friend and squad leader, he was an outstanding soldier and individual. We spent a lot of time together during field excercises and during our regular work days. There is not a day that goes by when I dont think of lisk, we took pics together when we frist got to iraq. I look at them often i really miss him. I remember me and terry switched our R&R days so I could go home the end of may and he could go home in march the month of his birthday. When he got back he told me how had enjoyed spending time with his little girl and and how he could not wait to get back to her. Terry was a great father and a good friend he is deeply missed and i share your pain as well. shannonh2k@yahoo.com"

"tomarrow is a very important day because it is terry's birthday and he is not here to celebrate it either and as we all know that he fought for us and everone is always saying that they hate the army and well i think they need to take a step back and think of all the things they are doing for us and that is fighting for are freeddom and i know that this really hard for my aunt right now because she lost he son in the war and it will be hard on his daughter because she doesn't have a daddy to look up to and i don't think she realizes that he isn't coming home ever again and that would be hard for me if i just lost my daddy fighting for are freedom and all these people say that we have a, alot of freedom but we don't we always have to fight for are rights and thats what are men are doing fighting for are lives and i love all of them for that too and Sgt.Terry.Lisk will be 27 years old tomrrow and he will not be here for anyparties not even his daughters and that is really sad and i just wish that people will realize that life is to short for all this fighting to happen and i think are men need to come home!!!! for good!!!

"TO LISKS FAMILY:

I WANT TO SAY HOW SORRY I AM FOR YOUR LOST I KNEW LISK FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS AND LIVED WITH FOR ABOUT A YEAR HE WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST MEN I EVER KNEW I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HIM. HE WILL BE IN MY HEART FOR AS LONG AS LIVE."
SPC. QUIGLEY,SEAN, GENERALSCOOTER@YAHOO.COM of AR RAMDI, IRAQ

"Terry, thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country. Because of you we can sleep safely at night and go to our jobs every day. Thank you for protecting all of us, even those who donít support what you were doing. They donít realize that the right they have to protest was given to them by people like you. You were my best friend during 7th and 8th grade and freshman year. Although our lives went different directions and we didnít keep in touch much I will never forget the summers we spent together. So here is to all the things that will always be in my mind when I think of you: Monkey Bread, Doug T, Hockey, Roller Blades, Parkway, Basketball, Dog n Suds, Tasty Freeze, Pizza Bagels, Ace Ventura, and my parents A/C on a hot summer day.

To Terryís friends and family and anyone else who reads this; actors, pop artists, sports stars, and the rich are NOT heroes or role models. Soldiers, police officers, fire fighters, and teachers are.

We will miss you Terry."
