I have 4 kids that I make sure that they will always remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our nation free. This summer Mike Ehredt ran across America as a silent tribute to falen heroes. www.projectamericarun.com just in case you where unaware of this memorial run. Mickeys flag was placed on Aug 21 along a sleepy little highway close to our home. His flag flew for a couple weeks and I recovered it before it would have been destoyed by highway mowing.. I want you to have this flag as a token of our appreciation to what Mickey stood for. I did not know him, but our family will not forget him. God bless your family. po box 884 milledgeville, IL 61051"

"I was going through a scrap book of mine and found an old birthday card. I love it and you too..I have so many wonderful warm memories of you. Horror movies in the barracks, our Thursday night rituals, dancing at Pyrates.
I miss you so much, my friend"
Miss V of NC

"Dear Mickey's Family,
My name is Veronica and I reside here in NC. I decided to google his name after I came across a birthday card that he got me in 1997. So this is the place where I tell you how much I miss him and how much I loved him.
I met Mickey on Sept 5th, 1996 in his barracks at Fort Bragg. This was the day that terrible hurricane was on our shores(Fran) and I found myself hanging out with a group of friends, that knew some guys that worked with Mickey. From the beginning, he was so sweet and made me feel like part of his family. He brought us pizza, we watched movies in his room and he even gave me a chem light after the power went out.
That night was very special to me, because not only did I meet someone that I hoped to see again, but I met someone that I hoped would be my friend forever and he was. From that day on, up until the time of his marriage, I was a fixture in Mickey's room! My friends and I would always hang out there before going to the clubs and it became a sort of ritual with us. Every Thursday night, it was fun times at Mickey's. We'd get there and he'd have pizza, movies, and a comfortable chair for us. Often he would leave and go to laundry or some other task while we hung out. Whenever the company had a function or jump, he'd call us up and we'd go to the dropzone or be there at the barracks for cookouts and volley ball. This went on for over 2yrs.
After he went to Fort Carson, I did lose contact and didn't know whether I would ever see him again. One day, I'm in a local bar and I see this tall, slender guy with piercing eyes looking at me. He walks over and says "are you Miss V?". I break down into a flurry of tears and blubbering as we hug and start to catch up. We have a few drinks, then share a few dances..I could actually get him on the dance floor!! We talk and hang out, and after the club closes we go to a 24-hr. Hardees and we talk all night. The next day(a Sunday)he drives up to my house and we hang out again and play soccer in the yard,watch movies,debate Stephen King and have dinner.
He was in my life for so long and I didn't know how to take his deployments other than "like a friend". He would call at least once a month, wrote a few letters and when he came back again, we would get together, go out dancing, or hang out. They are memories that I will treasure forever.
I remember the last time that I saw him. I walked in, and there he was, smiling down at me. I knew that he was going to be there, but didn't realize that it would be the last time. We had a blast, we danced all night, laughed, talked about life, how much he loved his family and the military. After the club closed, we went to his place, where he cooked us breakfast and we stayed until 6:00am. It was so good to be able to see him. He called me the first week of January to wish me happy birthday(my birthday is the 19th)and to say that he probably wouldn't be able to call on the exact date. We chatted for about 15mins, and told him I couldn't wait to see him again and give him a hug. We made tentative plans that we would hang out after he got back and got settled. I got the news about his death and it devastated me!I had just spoken with him three weeks earlier!! How could that be. He was a wonderful human being and I miss him everyday! He DID send my birthday card and I got it exactly on my birthday of 2005!2wks after our last conversation. He never forgot and neither will I.
I love you and miss you Mickey! He was an incredible human being and a great person. He didn't see my race(African-American), or my size and to see us two together(as we often were)at the mall,barracks or club was always a surprise for other people. Not for him, he and I enjoyed each other and had a pure, genuine friendship. I know that I'll never find that again and if I do, they will be compared to him."
Veronica Swann of Fuquay-Varina, NC

"Well Mick it has been 3 years and I can say I have thought about you everyday. For the longest time I couldn't bring myself to leave a message here. I so badly want to be able to take a last minute trip to the ski resorts like we did not long ago. I also always thought the first time I went to your home state would be for a reason other than saying goodbye. Your always in my thoughts. We all miss you."
Brian of Houston

Cheryl Zaun of Eden Prairie, MN

"Hey Mickey,
I just wanted to leave you a note and say how much we miss you. I wanted to let you know that even though we only knew you a couple years, you were an awesome friend! You had such a kind heart and you always made us smile. I'll never forget the time you protected me at that club, when Steve wasn't able to be there. You didn't have to do that, but that was how you were. I'll always remember how you would come to me for "psychic" readings--we had so many laughs. I'll never forget how you never let us take a picture of you(well, we did get one, with your head down).
You'll be happy to know, we finally did have a baby boy! He was born just a couple months after you passed. And guess what, he absolutely LOVES Mickey Mouse LOL!
It's funny, my little sister (who I tried to set you up with) AND my best friend, both married men who share your birthday; they also share similar features with you! Just another way for us to remember you. I wish I had found this page sooner. We're always thinking of you Mickey!
God Bless
Love,
Steve and Danielle"

"Lynyrd Skynyrd
» Free Bird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
'Cause there's too many places I've got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
'Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I can't change.
But please don't take it badly,
'Cause Lord knows I'm to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldn't be the same.
Cause I'm as free as a bird now,
And this bird you'll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I can't change.
Lord help me, I can't change.

LOVE YOU MICKEY - HAPPY BIRTHDAY."

"To the family of Mickey E. Zaun:

The Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation will be honoring your loved one at the non-denominational Memorial Day Sunday worship service at 11:00 a.m. on 29 May. We will remember the casualties of the Global War on Terrorism from Minnesota … and the neighboring states of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Outside of the historic Fort Snelling Veterans Memorial Chapel will be a “Memorial Garden” filled with white crosses bearing the names of the war dead … including your loved one.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship as we pay tribute to the sacrifice made by your service member and family. Our pastor, U.S. Army Chaplain, LTC Kenneth L. Beale, Jr. will preach a message entitled “Remembering Our Freedom.” A former Soldier and country music songwriter and performer “Rockie” will pay a special musical tribute. At the conclusion of the worship hour, all of the congregation will be invited to silently pay their respects at the garden and place poppies at each of the crosses. An honor guard squad will be on hand to fire vollies as the US flag is lowered to half-staff and Taps is played.

As this Christian worship service has traditionally been well attended, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (612/970-7866) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans’ name and the number of persons attending. If you are not able to attend, we pray that you would find comfort in knowing that our prayers are with you and all of the fallen heroes.
