An attempting to give the Iraq people hope. To one day live in peace. Serving your country today. Is a calling in life that not many American's do willingly as Scott has. An we need to honour our Hero! Please to his community and political leaders. Go that extra effort to honour Scott. Name a STREET in honour of him. Remember he served his community, county, state and county. We can not afford to forget his scarifice now or year's later. Scott thank you for being a military brother to our son. I realize serving in two differnt branches of service. You had not known one another. Still soldiers have that bond. Gregory is with you, so you finally have met. Not the way you two soldiers would of liked nor our families. Still it's a comfort you together with all your brother's and sister's. I shed many many tears. An I will continue too as I so for Scott. Scott not my son, yet it feel like he is! scott is someone's someone and he is someone to the Wahl family. As he should be to ever American. After all he helped protect your liberities and freedom's. All that comes at a price. Scott all this is very diffucult on your family. I can only suggest. take it one day at a time. Be supportive toward one another. Scott loved you all and he knew you all loved him. He is resting now in a better place. Still Scott is with you even now. Only refect to those very precious memorable moments you shared together with Scott. An you realize he is! father of fallen US Army Sgt. Gregory L. Wahl KIA Balad, Iraq 05-03-04 God Bless!"
