"In memory of Brian"

My name is Steve Crevier, I shared a barracks room with Brian while we were both stationed at Ft Richardson in Alaska. We were both in HHC 501st Airborne at the time. I'm sorry to hear of what happened to your son. I can only define him as what is best in all men. He loved his job, his friends and was one of the few people that you could truly count on do his best under any circumstance. Once again, I'm sorry and your family will be in my prayers."
Steve Crevier of Anchorage, Alaska

Saw a story on your son on CNN, I think. Have been watching all the salute the troops stuff this Memorial Day weekend. My son is an active duty Marine, serving his 3rd. deployment in Iraq. Remembering the ultimate sacrifice made by your dear son. Love and prayers to you and your family."
