"I was sadened to hear about Eddy. He was one of my Boy Scouts that helped make the new troop we started. He was a hard worker and a Fine Scout.
He had asked me about the Navy before he joined and I was proud when he asked me to be a reference if needed.
I will always remember him and his family.

In Christ name he will rest in peace."

"I am sorry to hear of your loss. i know how much it hurts to get the news your soldier is gone. Sgt. Robert Wesley Tucker was my soldier. he died the same day as 1sy Class Howard E. Babcock IV. it's almost been a year and i know the pain is still as bad for all of us and our prayers are with you. i'm sure he was a GREAT man and his life was great but cut short. on the 13th i hope you can remember the good times instead of the news that came that day."
