"Yoe, as I near my first deployment I think about you more everyday. You and my dad are my biggest role models and I wish you were still around to meet my sons. Being the oldest in my family you were the closest thing to what I think it feels like to have a big brother. I still remember the day my dad got that horrible call and not being able process what happened. Thank you again for the imprint you made on my life and I hope to meet you again. Love you big brother."

"Wow I remember he join in to make a page with us for our year book. So sad that people make wrong decisions in life and leave so soon. But you was a heroe! Thanks for fighting for us! R.i.p Joey"
Tanisha of Newark nj

"Yoe you don't understand how proud I am of you. It's been years, nine entire years, since you left our side. To be honest, I remember very little of you, but I wish we would've had more time. I still have that letter you sent me, saying you'd see me soon and that you'd come and play cars with me. You were such a respectable man. I know you can hear me now, I'd like you to know that I'm 14 now, and I'm doing really good thanks to you watching out for me. I really wish you didn't have to go, I would've loved to have you by my side. I miss you. If there's anyway to go, it's like this, you've earned the respect of the entire country, a decorated soldier, my cousin. I love you, may you rest in peace."
David Hernandez of Newark, New Jersey

And hey save me a seat in the tank because I want to go for a spin when I get there"
Bryan Barrera of Newark New Jersey

"I served with Yoe in OIF I-2003. He was my loader on my tank for most of the tour. When we went back to Iraq the second time I was not fortunate enough to have him on my tank. He went to 2nd plt. He was always willing to learn everything he could, even if he didnt need to learn it. Yoe, you were an outstanding soldier, I wish I could have an entire plt of Soldiers like you."
SFC Peterson, Jan-Marco of Fort Knox, KY

"Hey, Yoe. Well, I'm not going to lie here. While I was in the same unit as you, I din't really know you that well. But, I do remember one thing. We were at the COP, Ironhorse, or Warhorse, something like that, sorry it's been a while. It was like 3 in the morning, you had just come off an 18 hour OP, and my crew was hot-bedding on your tank. We were transfering gear and weapons, and you took me to the side, and spent about 10-15 minutes telling me EVERY quirk that pig had. From how the skate ring for the loaders 240 stuck near the front, to how it shifts REAL hard into 2nd gear. I think that was about a week or 2 before you died. I remember how hard JC (Ortiz) took it. yall were pretty close, I guess. Well, I'm doing all right for myself now. Reclassed, doing radio and TV now, going to Korea once I get out of school. Not an idiot anymore, even got myself promoted. Well, I just wanted to say, thanks for taking the time to square away a stupid private back in the day. Shine on, angel."
SGT Jacob Hughes of Fort Meade, MD

"I met Yoe back in sept. 2000 days after he had just arrived to NJ. Our story began one day after I was "ditching class" and I was hiding in the schools Gym. While in the Gym there was a PE class going on, and I was all alone just watching them. There comes this innocent looking boy and approaches me and greets me with a heavy accent and asks me''you speak Spanish?'and I answered ''claro, si soy de PR'' and he got very excited and jolly. I suppose because he was the new kid in school and he wanted to make friends. We hit it off and just began to talk. The next day was the biggest event at school that year, which was the HOME COMING dance, I was going to this event and decided to invite Yoe. I figured it would be a great place to go, especially when you are a new student at a school. So the day of the event I went to Yoe's house around 630pm and picked him up. When I called him and notified him that I was there he rapidly came down and we started to walk to my car and we headed to the school.Yoes home was only like 2 blocks away from the school, he lived on top of a bar or a restaurant. Yoe had on a blue shirt and black pants and some really nice shoes. I was surprised because he looked nice, it wasnt that innocent looking boy I met at the gym.We got there , parked and walked to through the park in front of our school and headed towards the entrance and he said before we walked in ''vamos a bailar y a gozar'' and I laughed lol Yoe was a very energetic/ happy person. The dance was fun and full of energy, Yoe was an incredible dancer. During the night I noticed Yoe dancing with a girl, this girl was a senior called Ali. Ali and Yoe were just dancing and having a great time. I joined them and we started RAVING! Rave was a very big thing back then..lol. I knew them 2 hit it off and were in for a surprise. After the dance I took him home. On the way to the house all he did was brag about his swagg! and I kept laughing and telling him ''what ??, u have no game!'' and je just laughed. I knew right away that him and i were going to be the greatest friends ever. During that school year we just got closer and had many things in common.He would bring me ropa vieja, this cuban dish his mother would make. He was very caring, and wasn't involved in gossip or drama. So our friendship grew and we established a stronger bond. We played volleyball together and enjoyed time around each other.Yoe really loved the sport and was very competitive. He was very good at it to, he gave his all in the court. I was very proud to have him as my team mate. When our season ended our coach made us an award ceremony where we all got trophies . He had a great family ,but his mother was very strong and protective of him. He had a lot of responsibilities for a young teenager. Yoe was forced to quit the team and other clubs he was involved in to care for his family. He had to a PT job in a nearby supermarket and would save his money to help support his family. Our senior year, he got married to Ali and I was the only person that knew. He really trusted me and considered me a brother.It was really hard for YOe, his mother opposed to his relationship to Ali. Yoe loved his mother, but wanted to be with Ali.The love is his life. He mentioned his ex girlfriend in Cuba, he would talk to me about his life there but was very happy with his new life and the opportunities he had in America to make his dreams come true. His dream was to be a DR, thats the reson why he joined the military. Yoe always mentioned how his mother didn't like Ali, and she wouldn't treat her right. That really bothered him, and he suffered a lot because of this. I was older so he took my advices and understood my point of views.I was his confidant, and till this day I keep all his secrets with me. In the summer of 2002 right before our graduation we decided to ditch school and we headed to NY on the subway and we made a strong pact on the way there. Yoe came up with the idea that we needed to make our friendship ETERNAL!he came up with the idea to get a tattoo which would signify our brotherhood for a lifetime. So, we did..we both got a tattoo along with my best friend Frankie at the time. A tattoo I have and I cherish every time. I am very blessed to have known YOe. I LOVED him very much!! and have in my heart for ever. HE is the only person in this world that knew me for me. And accepted me in every way. Not caring what my sexual preference was. Yoe is a true definition of a HERo. I LOVE you man! and to ALi thank you for making him the happiest men on earth! you made him believe in life and in love. He was very happy to have you around him, and felt fortunate to call you his wife. he mentioned that when you guys had a baby I was going to be the GOd father. I was very excited for this honer! MAy GOD bless you ...

and for you I dedicate these words YOE.

Although, the sun will never shine the same, I'll
always look to a brighter day.

Yeah, Lord, I know, when I lay me down to sleep,
You'll always listen, as I pray!

And I know you're shining down on me from Heaven,
Like so many friends we've lost along the way,
And I know eventually we'll be together.
One sweet day.

Recuerdo que juntos pasamos muy duros momentos
Y tú no cambiaste por fuertes que fueran los vientos
Es tu corazón una casa de puertas abiertas
Tú eres realmente el más cierto en horas inciertas

En ciertos momentos difíciles que hay en la vida
Buscamos a quien nos ayude a encontrar la salida
Y aquella palabra de fuerza y de fe que me has dado
Me da la certeza que siempre estuviste a mi lado

Tú eres el amigo del alma que en toda jornada
Sonrisa y abrazo festivo a cada llegada
Me dices verdades tan grandes con frases abiertas
Tú eres realmente el más cierto en horas inciertas.

P.S. excuse me for my errors, but I wrote this under tears and emotions and I couldnt concentrate.

"Yoe was one of the best soldiers I have ever had. He gave the ultimate sacrifice to his new country. Born in Cuba and only becoming a U.S. citizen a few short months before his second deployment to Iraq. Being killed on his 20 year on this Earth, too young. Alexandra, you will always be in my prayers. God Bless!"

"Well Yoe, its been a long time since I have spoken to you. The last time we talked was about if you were ready to become an NCO or not. I told you that you already were and it was time to put it on. You were a great man, a strong leader. You have the qualities every NCO searches for in a Soldier. I am proud to say I have known you. It used to be tough to think about you but now I can do it with a smile. Thank you for everything you are and were to everbody you encountered. And to everyone else who knew him, SMILE, because you have known and will always remember a truly remarkable human being. Not everyone is as lucky as we are to have known someone like Yoe."
SSG Bucher, Brandon of SHAPE, Belgium

"It's been years since we last saw you. I still remember you insisting that our daughter (I was pregnant with her at the time) was going to be a boy, and that you would call him CAJ (for caleb aiden jones). It is still hard for Mike to talk about you. It's hard for him to see pictures of you. He misses you so much. We still think about you. And we miss you."
Jones family of Fort Bliss, TX

"Hey Yoe,
Its been 3 years since you've passed away and we miss you like CRAZY. I know your doing fine up there because your not only with god but your also with mima. Two people i care about deeply. I hope to see you both again one day. And cousin i'll never forget you or any of our crazy days. Like when me and you would go out and i would watch you catch your pigeons, and then you'd bring them home and just take care of them. haha those were the days. It's still really hard for me to believe that your gone because out of all the people in the world you are the happiest person i've ever met. You always had that smile on your face. I know you always made me smile. Anyways primo take care up there and don't forget we all miss you dearly.
I love you.

"I served in Iraq twice with Yoe in the same TF (1-41 INF). The first time I met him we were in Iraq in 2003, his tank was down for about a month because it needed an engine. So to pass the time he made a kite and he flew it every day. Yoe was a cool dude when you got to know him, he made the best out of the worst and always had a smile on his face while making the best out of a bad day. I was in Sadr City the second time we were in Iraq and when I heard the bad news. I did not want to belive it, I did not even go to his sevice we had for him because it hurted and I was so mad. "Yoe I never said goodbye, sorry it took so long for me to get in touch, but please know this, I will never forget you. Yoe you are always in my prayers"."
Sgt. Francis, Kern of 1-41 INF Fort Riley

"Wow... I Am In Total Shock Right Now.

god bless you yoe. we miss you.."
Lester Quinones of Newark, New Jersey

Hi... I know you do not know me, and we may never get to know each other, but I just wanted you to know about the time I met Yoe. It was back in 2002 I was a student at ECC, in Newark, Yoe went there with a group of friends from East Side high, and my sister was one of them. Mariana introduced me to Yoe, and that was the only time I saw him, but since that day I could not forget his smile, and the way he made all the other people in the group laugh, he was a funny guy, to be honest I was impressed with his personality, he reminded me of a friend of mine from back in Ecuador. Since that day I used to ask my sister about him, and she always shared with me all the great moments they used to have as friends, anytime my sis and I talked about Yoe, we both ended up laughing, and asking each other how the hell he managed himself to be so nice and cheerful? He had that wonderful personality, and even if the time was not the best, he will just come out with a joke, and practically he would take the sadness away.
The day Mariana told me about Yoe being killed in Iraq, I just could not believe it; I remember that we both cried for days and Mari used to wake up at the middle of the night crying. Since that moment my sister and I started to pray not just for Yoe, but for all the soldiers that were, are and will be fighting this war.
Even today after almost 2 years since Yoe died I keep his smiles in mind and in my memories and I wanted you to know that God is happy because Yoe is up there making him laugh, and God is looking down blessing Yoe’s family, because they did a wonderful job raising him as a good man a wonderful friend and I’m pretty sure as a great husband.
Please let Yoe’s family know that he was wonderful, and he made a remark in anyone who got to know him at least for a few minutes.
I know you will find comfort in my words, and in anyone who let you know about Yoe’s journal in their lives.
Remember that everyone has a mission in life; probably Yoe’s mission was to help other guys that were in Iraq to have a smooth transition, I’m sure he was an inspiration for whoever got to know him.
Let God take your sorrow away, and remember you were blessed by having him in your life."
Diana M. Valenzuela of Newark, NJ

"I will never forget this great man, my high school classmate, my friend, my HERO. Yoe always brought joy to our homeroom, I'll never forget his smile, he was a very sweet friend. Yoe, you will always be remembered and missed by many of us, God knows how much we really miss you!
Love always,
Your special friend from East Side High School, class of 2002"
Mariana S. Valenzuela of Newark

"Aunque nadie me entienda quisiera expresar mis condolencias a sus amigos y familiares.que a ciencia cierta no me conoceran ni sabran quien soy yo.Soy por casualidad un joven español de 17 años que vengo de una familia de militares.y como soy un aspirante a soldado.descubri esta pagina por casualidad y me sorprendi al observar que un soldado americano tenia mi mismo apellido,por lo que no queria abandonar la pagina sin contarle a sus familiares que en españa tambien existen soldados con ese apellido.y que aunque nuestras banderas sean distintas en el fondo nuestro sentimiento es el mismo:LEALTAD Y HONOR."

"I had the previlage of serving with Yoe during our recent deployment to Iraq. Yoe was such a good person who placed his fellow soldiers and Nco's before himself.If we were having a bad day he would always find away to cheer us up. I know Yoe is up in Heaven smiling down on us. Yoe I know we will see each other again.Alexandra my prayers and thoughts are always with you. I want to personally thank you for sending me flowers and talking to me when I was in the hospital from being wounded over there."
SFC Lallement of Fort Leavenworth Ks

"Yoe was the kind of guy that would make you smile even when you didn't want to, just good natured. I remember being awakened by my tank commander with the news of his death. At first I didn't think it was true since I was out in sector just a few hours before. I miss you man and I remember the good times we had, your memory is the reason why I keep going."
SSG Michael Blake of Ft Knox , KY

"On the 7th of September, its been one year and 5 months,
Since you were taken away.
How I wish I could turn back time,
And delete that awful day.

The sun was out, it was beautiful,
Just like you were to me.
Now all thats left, is a Stone,
And beautiful memories.

You were an angel here on earth,
To all who saw your smile.
A blessing to the ones you loved,
A wonderful person in every away.

Life here without you isn't the same,
Theres an emptiness inside.
Who would have known that beautiful morning,
Was going to be your last ride.

I know your in Heaven looking down,
If only we could feel your touch.
I hope you know that all of us here,
Love you and miss you very much.

This was your favorite time of year,
Maybe that was in His plans,
You make a difference on earth,
Before He took your hand.

I love you Yoe, I always will,
Death can never make it end.
I will love you till my time is over,
And maybe I'll see you again.

Until then, I know you'll be ok,
God has you in his care.
And sometimes when I'm outside at night,
I can still feel you there.

We all miss you so much Yoe,
All your family, and your friends.
Just keep smiling down on us,
Until we can see you again."
