"You are always in my thoughts, always in my heart. Whenever I think of my son SGT.Christian B. Williams I thought of you and your brothers. It is ten years in four more days yet our hearts ate still longing and missong you guys. I guess the meaning of Semper Fi always hits us. Rest in peace warriors and from our heart we say THANK YOU for giving all.You will always be remembered, and will never be forgotten."

"To all those who have so graciously sent us messages concerning Phillip, Thank you. As much as he seems to have inspired others, please know that each of you also inspired him. Those of you who served with him were his family in ways much different than we are. We know that he fought for your lives and placed himself in harms way for you many times before the day he died. We know he did so without thought for his own safty but absolute concern for your's. And we know that all of you did exactly the same for him. Thank you for taking care of Phillip so many times just as he took care of you.

If he could set down and talk with each of you he would tell you to let go of the horrors of war that they are baggage you don't have to carry. To just order them to leave each time they try to take hold of you. Listen to Phillip. Think of what he would being saying to you if he were with you now. May God's blessings be with each of you."
Phillip's Mother of Wolf Creek, Montana

I would like to say thank you to you and the other three Marines from your unit(3d LAR) who were also killed in that mortar attack for your service and sacrifice for our Country. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Semper Fi Devil Dog!"

"Corporal Bacucus, I have not known you for very long. We first met just prior to our first trip to Iraq in 2004. I saw a new Lance Corporal very diferent from most others. You were strong, confidend and mature. You had a attraction that junior and senior alike would gravate to. You have grown into a leader, friend and Marine that most only wish they could be. You displayed those qualities time after time and have genuinely affected the lives of all your Marines. I observed the tireless effort you put into training and provinding for the welfare of your Marines first hand during our last deployment to Iraq in 2006. I guess what I am trying to say is that your caring nature and natural leadership has inspired many. You will forever be missed and remembered, but your memories will always stay with us. To your family I wish that there was a way I could share all the feelings and memories I have with Philip. Just know that we all appreciate the your sacrafice and wish that it was one that you did not have to endure. I wish I could ease the pain you all feel. I wish that I could do or say something to make it all go away. The only words that I can offer is to say thank you for allowing me to know your husband, son and nephew and to be a small part of his life. Philip Baucus your service is greatly appreciated and will forever be honored. I will miss you always....."
Gunnery Sergeant Lukus, A.J. of 29 Palms California, USA
