"May 19, 2016 - APG Run to Honor 5 Mile/5K was held today. If you did not have anyone to dedicate your run to they provided you with a name. It was truly an honor to dedicate my run to you SFC Neil Prince. Thank you for serving and making such a big sacrifice for your country. What an honor today was for me. May God keep and continue to bless your family."

Love, Your son Jordan. June 11, 2013."
Jordan Prince of Stone Mountain, Georgia, USA

"Hi, brother. I cannot believe that it has been 8 years today since you have passed. You are so missed. I think about you every time I see your son, Jordan. He is such a blessing - just an overall wonderful kid. He is so sweet, polite and lovable. He is an exceptional student and a talent musician. I think about all that you and he have missed out on and how proud you would be of your son. I thank God for him everyday because he has been such a blessing to the entire family. He looks so much like you and has so much of your mannerisms and definitely has your smile. Continue to watch over him and protect him as he grows into manhood. Love always, your sister."
Shane Prince of Baltimore, MD/USA

"To the Prince Family, He was a good man and a good friend. I remember when I first arrived to Ft. Lewis. He was the first person that talked to me. He walked up and said "What up, you new here!" From that moment on he was a good friend. He always had my back in the Army or out on the streets. I just found out from a friend of ours about his passing. My prayers are with you and I know that even through all his crazy ways, he is in a blessed place. A true soldier, but better yet, I true man. My brother you will be missed. One love and god bless you...Delly"

"Hello my brother,
Not many days go by that I don't think of you and your family. I often think of the conversations we use to have and the time we spent together. I wear a arm band on my risk baring your name to remind me every day of our lost of such a great Soldier. I visit your grave every time I am in DC to set and have a conversation like old times. Few months ago I was there for a visit and meet CPT Edward Liu he sends me picture and keeps me informed of the different ceremonies that’s going on there. God bless you brother and R.I.P."

"To the Prince Family,
My name is Tywain Smith and SFC Prince was my first Squad Leader when I first enlisted into the military. From our group of Russel, Brown, Ski and Velez were all apart of his squad with SFC at the time Woolard. He was a true leader and carried himself as such. I pattern my military career behind his footsteps and he gave me valuable advice that to this day I still hold true to my heart. I am speaking for all of the guys by saying we are deeply sorry for your loss and will like to send our deepest condolences. I found out about his passing thru a friend to whom was stationed with us at FT.Hood in 1995. If I maybe of any assistance or anything else I can be contacted thru email tywain.j.smith@us.army.mil."

Jordan and I will never forget you! Rest in peace knowing that we love you and that we will be thinking and talking about you always."

I wish you were here, badly, but I know that you died doing what you wanted and loved next to your family and sports. Love you always, my love and my heart!!"
Suzette of Stone Mountain, GA

"It is with a heavy heart that I reflect on the wonderful times SFC Prince and I shared together. From Fort Lewis to Korea, this great brother often served as a mentor to me. I know of no other warrior who staunchly believed in the professional development of his fellow comrades. Even in the heat of the moment, he often found time to make a phone call from the TOC to coordinate NCOES and assignments for his Soldiers in Iraq.

Bro, I continued the mission in your honor, and it is directly because of you, that hundreds of Soldiers went on to obtain the professional development training that you coordinated by phone and by e-mail, thousands of miles away.

I know you wanted to be an Army Equal Opportunity Advisor, and we went at lengths to coordinate your packet, but the reality of it is that you did not need the schooling to where the title. You provided for and opened opportunities for all. I am a living testament of this via your tutelage to me as a young Soldier at Fort Lewis.

You are my hero
You are our hero

Thanks pal"
SFC Walcott of HRC-Alexandria, VA

"To the family of Neil Prince: I was stationed in 2/17 with SFC Prince in Ramadi. I was shocked to find out that he had died. The night before his death I had talked to him about his memory stick not working in the computer inside the night ops room. And he was telling me that he was going on R&R the next day to get a break from Ramadi. He was a great inspiration and soldiers loved him for the knowledge and wisdom he was always willing to share. My last memories of him will always be my fondest and my condolences go out to the family."

"SFC Neil Prince--How do I begin? First off, I would like to say that I met Sgt Prince At Fort Hood. We were in the same unit together---HHB Divarty 4th ID. He was such a good NCO. He was my boyfriend's, Pfc Smith, squad leader at the time. He would always tell me how great a leader your husband was. He always carried himself with the utmost dignity and respect. And was always professional. You probably don't remember me, but I did a special assignment with you at the Physical Exams Building at Fort Hood across from Darnell, Suzette. We laughed and had some good times together. You were so much fun to be around. You were such a good person. We were both medics, you and I. You were such a sweet person and when you told me that you were married to the Sgt Prince in my unit, I thought you all made the perfect couple. I know that there is nothing that I could ever say to make you and your loved ones feel better, but do know that you have been in my prayers the moment I found out about your tragic loss. My heart truly goes out to you. I wish there was something that I could do to make you feel better. If there is anything that I can do or if you just need someone to talk to and to listen, please feel free to contact me at anytime day or night. I don't care what time it is. My address is 607 Wheelock St. Hearne, Tx 77859. My cell phone number is 979-739-4803. You are a very strong young lady and I know that you will pull through."

We are deeply saddened to hear of a brother Marylander paying the ultimate price for our freedoms. We pray for your strength during these trying times. From one Maryland family to another, God bless you and may He bring your family peace. A very grateful American family."
Jim & Margie Shaw of Pasadena, Maryland of USA

"To the family and friends of SFC Neil Prince...I had the pleasure of serving with SFC Prince while stationed at Cp Stanley, Korea. He always showed a positive attitude. Even though he had one of the toughest jobs in our s-3 shop, he never complained. God will give him the rest he truly deserves and give his family the strength and comfort they need. I and my family will pray for you. I will always remember what a selfless man he was. May God bless you all."
SFC Frank Williams and family of Ft. Bragg, NC

"Suzette,
I was just thinking of you and the great remorse you must be experiencing and somehow I had a flashback of you at one of Wolmer's talent show where you sang Whitney Houston's, Your still my man. It's been awhile since I heard it but the chorus came back to me and I could hear you belting the song like Whitney herself.....
"You're still my man and nothing's gonna change it.
We still belong together
You're still my man and nothing's gonna
change it.
Our love will last forever.
I'll wait for you the sun that keeps
me going each day
'Cause I believe you still love me
I love you more than words can say"

Which led me to wondering Why...why that song choice? I know right now that question might be in the forefront of your mind and justification eluding. I don't have answers but I do know that you were blessed with Neil in your life and though he is no longer with us, he'll always be with you and Jordan....and nothing's gonna change that.
To Neil's parents, the pain of losing a child is unbearable but take comfort in knowing that you have the distinction of having raised a hero."
Trudy Richards of Stone Mountain, Georgia

"To Suzette, Jordan and family

Safely Home


I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the Shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illuminated
Every dark and fearful glade,

And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
* * *

Our love and prayers to you, especially to Suzette and Jordan.
Everytime you think of him, Neil is with you, as is the Lord.

In His Love-

"Mrs. Suzette, I never met your husband but all I here about him is good. I am really sorry that I never got to meet him! He must of been a great man! I am praying for you, Jordon and the rest of your family as you go through this trying time. We love you!"
Sarah of Bel Air, Maryland

"Cecil, "Ritty", and all the members of the family,
I never met Neil's wife nor his child, but I know this must be a very difficult time for you as well as for them. I also know that God is such a good god that HE will sustain you in this a most trying time. Sometimes, most times we are uncertain about God's way of working. The Psalmist was at his wits end in Psalm 73, expressing great concern about how the wicked seem to prosper and are not faced with the difficulty that others have. Then the Psalmist gave us the insight that was revealed to him, he said: He lacked the understanding until he went into the sanctuary of the Lord and and there he was given the understanding of what happens to the wicked in the end. The same is true about the righteous, when they find themselves in the presence of the Lord, he does reveal what their reward is.
Neil, did not die in vain, God in his Omnipotent power and righteousnes has a plan. The purpose might not be readily evident or clear, but there is one and it will be revealed.
I hope that even though your faith have been challenged you will continue to celebrate the joy, laughter, and beautiful memories that Neil brought not just to you, but to the many he had contact with.

and as the song writer says:
In his presence there is fullness of joy and at his right hand pleasures for evermore.
Neil is in a better place, in the very presence of a great and mighty God and I know that there might be weeping and sadness tonight, but joy will come in the morning.

Love you guys with a lot of energy and will weep with you in this time of mourning.

Stay strong for Neil and all the others who have died in such a tragic way."
Sylvester "Jim" Bowie of Vacaville, CA

"Suzette,
I feel as though you are a part of my family. I remember when Jordan was born and your family moved away from Killeen. I remember the good time we had for your 1st Mardi Gras. My heart goes out to you and everyone in the United States with a family member in the armed forces. I will never forget the soldiers who gave their lives for our country. From my family to your family "I will always remember the men and women who gave their lives for us!" I will stay prayful for your strength.

Love you."

"For the Prince family I leave my most sincere condolences. Neil was a great friend and one awesome soldier. My wife Shannon and I share very fond memories of him. We were all stationed at Fort Lewis, and spent most of our off time together. Although we are grieving his passing, we are also celebrating his life and the many days he brought joy to our lives. I would like for all of you to know we will always hold him and his spirit dear to our hearts. Prince you will truly be missed."

"Suzette, no amount of words of condolences or expression of sadness/grief will bring Neil back to Jordan and yourself. But know that we are all here for you through thick and thin. Your precious soul Jordan will be your 'little soldier' in your time of need and will be a source of comfort. Even though he is only 4 years old, he is extremely wise beyond his years. He has alot of his Dads' traits and I know everytime you look at him you will see Neil. My time with Neil was brief, but he has left a lasting impression on me (and I am sure everyone that he had come in contact with). God only take the best and it was Neils' time to go. Its not for us to ask 'WHY' but for us to say 'THANK YOU' for the time we had him for.

May God bless and keep you safe through this journey of sadness.

One love (your wanna be sister);

Sue, I know Neil was the love of your life, your friend, your husband he was everything to you. He was more than special. He was a brother and a friend to me.

"“SFC PRINCE NEIL” Where do I begin… To the family we send our heartfelt condolences. You will be that Soldier that we will always remember; I cannot and will not forget you. You will be surely missed. As I set and reflect on our time together back in the 1ST Cav days, at my house. We were setting around laughing and talking about being a Soldier. We both know how much you love being a Soldier. The Army the nation, the country have loss a TOP SENIOR NONCOMMISSIONED OFFICER.. You were always that person I could go to that could make it happen. I remember it like it was yesterday, in KOREA when you came to me and told me you had been selected to go on the Iraq mission.

You are my hero and I will miss you, “Bro R.I.P.”

We were childhood friends living on the same street together. We graduated high school at the same time; you went Baltimore City College, and I was at Mervo with Daryl. You, Daryl, and myself all joined the service together in 1989 when you went into the Army, Daryl in the Marines, and me in the Navy. We all reached our 15 + years mark hoping we would enjoy our lives til grow we grow old. When we all heard the news, we were all crushed. However, your spirit will live on in us forever........
I love you my brother!!!!!!!!!!!!"
