"I still remember talking to him the day he rolled out on that mission, he was really excited about what he was doing, He was a bright and happy spot in that dull and dark place that we call war. He was a good man and had good values, one of the few men that you could describe like that these days, He is still missed! To his family, of whom I have never met, you can rest assured that he was a pillar of humanity for us all, be proud of him, be very proud. SGT Chapman, David B, US Army Ret."
