"Eric, This morning is a little harder than most somehow you are on my mind since I awoke. I do think of you and family often must give your mom a call. I try to think of all the funny times we had(standing by the fence when you were 3 yrs old with your little hand made into a fist asking me if I could hear it and when I said "no" you asked me if I wanted you to turn it up and I said "yes" and you put your middle finger up.) So yeah you was "the Eric" back then and never changed Loved you then and still love you and miss you lots..Keeping you in my prayers and I know we will see each other again one day!!!!"

"Mac was the funniest guys I ever served with in the Marine Corps; 3/2 was never the same when Mac reported for duty!! I remember it was pouring cats and dogs at NTA zero dark early. Mac had a fire team of Pogue's (admin pucks) which he had to post for fire watch. Some PFC was late to formation; Mac gave him that “salt dog look" and that was enough to make him * his pants. SIMPER FI McIntosh! I miss you brother!!

"Mac, when we first met you taught me how to shoot a long gun, with style, humor, and knowledge that made it one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Later, we became friends and shared many good memories together. Then you were lost to us all, and I've missed you ever since. I'll see you again at the appointed time."

You will not be forgotten brother."
SSgt Phillips, Shawn G. of Camp Lejuene, North Carolina

"Eric was the best little brother in the world. There isn't a day that goes by that I do not think about him. He is truly missed by his whole family. I feel Eric taught us all how to have fun and make each other laugh every day. I knew Eric was an adult when he joined the Corp. He always talked about his guys and being a Marine with such passion. He truly believed in what he was doing and he did his job to the best of his ability. I have some wonderful, mostly funny memories of Eric but I would love to hug him and tell him how much I love him again ."
