"To all the family and friends of SFC Terry Wallace, It seems that time goes by unrelenting to those memories we hold dear, and words never seem to be enough to thank you for your sacrifice to our nation. Terry loved his family and soldiers to his very fiber. I soldiered with him at several duty stations and many a late night was spent with Terry in training or prep for training. I think back on all of the training exercises and Radar FTX's that we encountered, some of which I was the evaluator, if there was something I could have done differently to change the outcome of June 2006. I have searched so many memories , and arguments with Terry about training and strategies, I am blessed to remember his smile and his desire to lead from the front. Please know that I remember your pain, his sacrifice, and pray for your family that God will keep you until your family is together again. In Jesus name."

"We often say goodbye or he's going home. We fail to mention what they have done before they left us. SFC Terry Wallace has done whole lot more for us, he was my mentor and friend. We should remember him by the "Dash" meaning from the time that he was born to the time that he passed. That dash represents everything that he has done and what he meant to us in our life. So lets not talk about his pass, lets remember that Dash. I'll see you again my friend."
Rickey Nicks of Killeen, Texas

Together we stand strong because of the leadership you provided. The dedication and compassion you show everyday to your fellow soldiers will live with us forever. You were there for me anytime day or night. You were the first at the hospital when Lakeyn was born. Maybe thats why he still ask where is Wallace.

"To the family and friends of Terry: Even though he is no longer with us on earth, he has left his full presence in our hearts. Terry, I believe you are with God smiling down on us. Hopefully, you remember all the good times from high school to us being in Hawaii together. It's funny how we grew up in such a small town and still years later ended up all the way in Hawaii. I sit back and laugh at the pictures of us eating and playing cards. You use to cheat but, I forgive you. Thank you my brother-in-law and friend. May your soul rest in peace. You gave the ultimate gift, which is your life for our country. I hope your death will render peace and tranquility to all. May God continue to bless all fallen soldiers and soldiers at war for this country."

The "BOOT" will not be the same without you."
