"I was one of Glenn's soldiers who took the trip with him to join Charlie company in Bagdad. I got to know Glenn pretty well, as we worked together for a month or so on rear detachment at Ft. Drum before deploying.He was a great guy in general, as well as a great leader. He spoke of his daughter alot, and I could tell that he loved her very, very much.He was a good man, who also cared alot for the well being of his soldiers. God bless his family, and I know that he's looking down on them from heaven, especially his daughter, who was his favorite topic of conversation."
Russ Davis of Braintree, MA

"I have not visited this site in awhile because I keep seeing soldiers that I have either trained, trained with or had the pleasure to training alongside keep appearing. Now I am back and for a good cause one of mine and Glenns good friends will not appear on this site because he was not killed in action. But rather he killed himself. I think we should truly honor these individuals as well as they may have died but not in combat but died trying to live with the scars that they are living with...... In loving Memory of STEPHEN FREIBURG I love you and miss you man. I still have not opened that letter your sister found because I feel I abondened you... Comratery first!!!!!!!"

"Glenn, I admire you most for the person that you were rather than just your occupation. This world not only lost a soldier, but a loving father, son and brother. I want to personally thank you for risking your life for my freedom. Even though I never had the honor and pleasure of meeting you. I have read so many great things about you and I believe that God has a bigger purpose for you. You're now a soldier in God's army. Continue to protect and love."

"I served with Glenn Allison in Basic training at Ft. Benning, GA, his bunk sat right across from mine. Though it was a while ago, I remember that smile he always had, upbeat when things were not so easy, he had the great ability to make you feel better and stronger when you were around him. We will always remember Glenn for what he was, a True American Hero. To all of Glenn's family, I am truly sorry for you loss."

I was that which others did not want to be.
I went where others feared to go,
And did what others failed to do.
I asked nothing from those who gave nothing,
And reluctantly accepted the thought of
Eternal loneliness…should I fail.
I have seen the face of terror;
Felt the stinging cold of fear;
And enjoyed the sweet taste of a moments love.
I have cried, pained, and hoped…but most of all,
I have lived times others would say were
Best forgotten
At least someday I will be able to say that
I was proud of
What I was…
D. Burt of Rhode Island

"Glenn is a person I will never forget, we shared a lot of great experiences together. I remember back in Korea after Glenn had just gotten promoted to CPL, he said to me, "graham I would reenlist and stay in the Army only if I can get Fort Drum", he said he wanted to be close to his daughter, I believed she was living in Boston. He had it all figured out, he was planning on driving to see her on weekends. I am so hurt by his lost, God Bless you Glenn and your family. email grahaml@marshallcenter.org"
