"SSG Curtis Anthony Mitchell is an honorable man of courage and valor who i will never forget. I remember his relaxed and friendly personality. Days before Dec 12, 2005 I was privileged to be able to partake in a tactical movement with him in which time his memory will stand strong in my mind forever. A disciplined well trained soldier who led by example and feared no evil. You are not forgotten!"
Colin Parsons of Denton, TX

"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 met Curtis in March 2003 in Kuwait before the war started. He and some of his 7th Cav buddies really helped my intelligence team get some medical training/equipment and some familiarity with the Army's armor before the fighting started. We all greatly appreciated the valuable time that he and his colleagues took from their hectic schedules to assist us. His help could very well have been the reason all of our team made it out of Iraq safe later that year. My heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of a great man."
F. Bradford of Las Vegas, NV
