"To Pena and his family and mostly his wife, it has been a long time since that horrible day, and that day hunts my mind still, it has been a very difficult time all these years that I could not keep him safe and could not save him, the promise I made to his wife that I will bring him home safe lingers in my mind, when I returned home and buried CPL Henry Brown, I was asked to go to Florida to meet SPC Pena's family, but I couldn't, my heart hurt and was so scared to meet them, that I could not protect there son, I'm so very sorry to his family and it still lays heavy in my heart, Pena was a very wonderful person, a great friend and wonderful soldier, I still miss him today. My God bless you Pena and your family, may your spirit be at rest, again I'm sorry."
