"I am so deeply saddened to hear of this tragedy. I was just thinking of the two of you and googled your names and stumbled upon this news. We were next door neighbors to Jason and Chris in Elmendorf from 2002-04. I have such a heavy heart for Chris and the kids. Jason was a great man and an amazing father. I wish his family a tremendous amount of healing. He is greatly missed!"

"As I sit here about to deploy again, the memories of Jason and Brian remain strong in my mind and heart. I have never posted on here before, but the night they were laid into eternal rest Jason and I had a good laugh about keeping our heads down. There is not a day that goes by I do not think about both of them and the strong people that they were. To the families of both of these heroes, I want you to know, that everyone that knew them will always have a place in there hearts for you(the family). We will continue to fight to ensure that you did not die in vien. Both of you will always be in me and my families thoughts. REST IN PEACE. I love you"

"It is with a heavy heart that I write this message for the family of Jason Norton. Jason and I were both stationed at Tinker AFB and deployed together to Dahran in 1995. The deployment was nothing compared to what Security Forces members go through during this Iraq war. Norton was a good friend and he was very supportive when I was new to the career field. He was crucial to my success in the Air Force and I will always have him to thank for that. I pray that his family is comforted during this difficult time and know that you are in my prayers."

"As a current SF member doing a speech on why civilians should support their troops even if they don't support the cause, I am humbled by your life and your sacrifice. Though you won't read this, I hope your family knows how much your individual life meant to the force you left behind. One team, one fight, one force, one family.
