I would 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. I remember watching an old episode of Mail Call with R. Lee Ermey talking with you and your crew at Ft. Irwin, Ca before your deployment to Iraq. It saddens me now whenever I watch it and realize that you're not with us anymore.
