"I flew with Mark while serving in Charlie Company, 5th Battalion, 101st Aviation, to include Somalia. Mark was a gracious and humble man who was always pleasant to be around. A tragic loss for the world, but what a marvelous gain for God!
Mark, as an aviator for the Lord, keep the greasy side down and the medals out of your face!
May God bless his family; may God bless our military; and may God bless the U.S.A.!!!"
