"May memories of "Brian C. Prosser" and the love of family surround you and give you strength in the armor games hacked days ahead."
samuelddarden of Dallas, Texas/USA

We still carry you in our heart and thoughts.
We were stationed in Japan for about 3 years and have been back stateside almost 2 years. While there Rebecca St. James came over to have devotion with the ladies group and she came to our church to sing. We told our 3 children about Cody and you on that day. It was as hard then as it was to see you at church in Clarksville with your family when all lost Cody 13 years ago. Charles and I will never forget your families sacrifice for our country and the loss of his brother in arms.
We have lost contact with each other but we have never let you leave our thoughts and prayers.

Grows as we grow older
A place once warmed by camaraderie
Now cold, and each year colder

You are not forgotten, Brian."

Brian, it's ten years today. You represented the finest our nation had to offer. I am ever thankful for your courage, commitment and ultimate sacrifice, and I pray for your widow and family.

Rest in Peace, Brother."

"We watched over each other! Now you watch over me! You will always be a brother to me! You will be loved and missed for eternity!"
Mike of Illinois

In spite of not always seeing eye to eye, and maybe because of it, I miss you and I know the "boys" all miss you. It still haunts me that some how I could have changed the situation, prevented it. I called Shawna from K2, but it just didn't seem enough. I still get emotional about it...we miss you."
CPT Mike Sjostrom of Fort Knox, KY

Can't belive it's been eight years. Still remembering you."
Stan Lavery, SFC, USA (Ret) of Belcamp, MD

"Cody--I will never forget the morning of your death. Listening to all of your names in the basement of our house in Kabul was a very difficult time. It is still hard for me to think of that day. To Shawna--I pray that you are able to continue with the strength you showed Dottie and I. Love to you from Us. Charles and Dottie Hiter"
MAJ Charles Hiter of Kuwait

"Brian & Family,
Thank you for your sacrifice. I love you man. I'll never forget the moment I heard, pounding my steering wheel and yelling "No, not Brian, NOT Brian!"
Then thinking, maybe it wasn't you, but the announcer added, "known to family as Brian "Cody" Prosser" and I cried for you Bro.
You were one of the best soldiers I've ever been privileged to know, in or out of the field, and an outstanding NCO, too. My prayers are with your family. That day 5 years ago I sent out an e-mail to everybody in my military inbox about what happened at PLDC, and implicated the Cadre there. Ha, I really scalded them man, by the Class #! "Doom on them!" you would say. I never made SFC but * 'em man, it was worth getting off my chest, you didn't deserve what they did to you there.
Love you bro. You're always in my heart man."
SSG Stan Lavery of Fort Meade, MD

"SSGT Prosser, I can't believe it's been five years. I have not forgetting the price you paid."
Capt. H

"I was 6 months pregnant when I noticed the words scroll by on the bottom of my TV screen. I meet Prosser in North Carolina shortly after he had arrived. I had a little boy in March 2002 and his name is Cody. In honor of a hero and one time friend."
Melinda of Arizona

"To the family of Brian Prosser. We lost our son in Afghanistan 1/29/04.
Our family vacation cabin was in Frazier Park. I pray you are doing well and want to thank you for your sons sacrifice. A true American hero! So many Americans understand and appreciate the cost of freedom. Thank you for your son and for your sacrifice."
Paul Kinser of Rio Vista, California. USA

I would like to say thank you to you and the other soldiers who died in your unit(3/5th SFG) for your service and sacrifice for our Country.

"Green Berets All The Way!""

"I will never forget the day I found out that Brian had passed. I woke to a phone call "Stacey, is Brian okay?" My heart stopped. My husband, Brian A. Prosser had left for work, and I was terribly confused. It was the lady that had just sold us our home. She had just heard on the news that an Army soldier named Brian Prosser had been killed. After hanging up, I just sat and wept for you and your family. You see, I could have just as easily been Shawna. I'm married to Brian Prosser, who went into the Army to avoid getting a "real job", but got out of the military having become a man. It's been almost 10 years since he got out, but he still misses it daily. If not for the fact that he was medically discharged, we would still be in the Army; or, at the very least, he would have gone back in after Sept. 11th. Brian's death affected us in a way I can not explain. We bought a sympathy card to send to you, and my husband sat down numerous times to write to you, but I couldn't bear the thought of you receiving mail from "Brian Prosser". I am sorry if this doesn't make much sense, but I just wanted you to know that you have touched the lives of people you've never met, and that you are still prayed for on a daily basis. Words can never express our appreciation for the sacrifice that you've made so that my children can sleep in peace. May God Bless and Keep You."
Stacey H. Prosser of Conway, SC, USA (and proud of it)

"Even though I never got to meet you I did get to know your wife a little. I remember my husband telling me that you had just joined 2/5th Special Forces Group, and that you would be going to Afghanistan together. I would have loved to have known you. God bless you Cody. Rest in Peace."
Emma Freeman of Clarksville, TN

"I recognized you from across the world. Your sacrifice motivated me to return to the detachment, and I am here still. It is not the same without you. You represented the finest our nation has to offer. You will not be forgotten."
John Hamilton of Clarksville, TN

"Thanks for stepping forward when America needed you. To the family - Thank you for your contribution to our liberty and freedom. I'm sorry for your tremendous loss."
Ronald Carlson of Montrose, MN

I knew you as a young man. I played baseball and wrestled with Mike. I'm proud of what you accomplished and hope you find that innocence of what once was."
Ken Mazzanti 309th MI BN of Ft. Huachuca, AZ

"Sergeant Prosser, goodbye soldier and thank you. You are my hero."
Bill of Houston, Texas

"Cody, it still seems so unreal that you are gone. You are thought of often and will always be. I wish that I could tell your family how sorry I am for their great loss. Anyone who knew you understands how proud you must be to have given your life for the country you loved so much. It is such an honor to have served with you and a blessing to have known you as a friend. You are missed."
Angelina Adamson of Colby, KS

"I am so very grateful for this solider's service to his nation. My family is safer thanks to him. Simple thanks are not enough, but please know that you will never be forgotten for what you did for them."
The Estes Family of Phoenix, AZ

"Cody, I've often wanted to post a message somewhere and talk about some of the things we experienced, but I never really could find the right words. I guess I still can't. You will forever remain in my thoughts and I consider myself lucky to have served with you. It's been several years since you have passed on and I still kick myself for never having the guts to call and offer my personal condolences to your family in California. I called Shawna when I was still in Afghanistan, but I never called your father. All the "boys" in 3/5th SFG(A) MID are doing well. Rest in peace my brother. Al"
Al Iversen of Woodbridge, VA

"Thank you Brian Prosser, you will not be forgotten. Your bravery goes beyond words. I want to express my deepest gratitude for your sacrifice. To the family and friends, my prayers and deep condolences in your loss. May God strengthen you from knowing that fellow Americans and people around the world care about you and grieve with you in your loss. God bless you all. A very appreciative fellow American,"
Leo Titus of Grayslake, Illinios
