"To everyone who reads this I would like to thank you for taking the time. My best friend Sarah Miller told me about this page so I came to see it too. Harley meant a lot to all of us. Today is the day before his birthday. It's hard to think about how much time has come and gone since he passed. He is definatly thought about often. He was truly a wonderful guy and changed manylives. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten. I know it means a lot to his family to hear how he is missed by others."

"Friends and Family of Harley D R Miller. I have never met you nor do I know any of your names. I am only a thirteen-year-old kid. However, I bought a bracelet from http://www.memorialbracelets.com that has your son's name on it. I chose him out of the rest of the soldiers because he died on November 27, 2004: my 12th birthday. I use my bracelet as a reminder that life can be very short so everyone should make the most of theirs. I pray for him and for you every night as I fall asleep. God Bless You."

"Sarah and Cory although we have never met you I have had you in our thoughts all year. My husband was in C troop of the same unit with Harley. I have seen many pictures of him and videos of him while in Afghanistan. He is a hero to us all and a man whom I have heard many, many wonderful things about. May you find peace in knowing that he is still there with the both of you if only in spirit. And may you find some comfort in knowing that we are thinking of you, keeping you both in our hearts, prayers and thoughts. I feel like I know you, but have never met you. 3/4 Cav lost a wonderful soldier and friend. God Bless you."
