"Jeremy was like a son to me. He served under my command during his first tour in Iraq. He was the epitome of what a Platoon Commander would want from one of his Marines. Always ready, Always willing to do the tough job, never complained once, had a smile on his face every time you saw him, and absolutely LOVED nothing more than being a Marine. I was supremely lucky to have served with this man. I will grow old so that you live on. I lost a piece of me the day that we lost you, and handing the American Flag to your mother at your funeral was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. Till Valhalla Brother. You are forever in my thoughts."
Brian Schultz of Richland, MI

"This time of the year is always the hardest. First memorial day and then your angel anniversary. It's still so hard but tonight a friend of yours who was there when we lost you had the most amazing conversation about you. He sent me a pic I have never seen of you that was taken while you were in Iraq in 04 with that goofy growling face you made and a knife in your hand I can not express how much I miss you! And how seeing that picture made me feel. It put the biggest smile on my face! I love you Jer Bear! I couldn't have chosen a better hubby! Xoxo"

I love you bro."

"I am Jeremy's Aunt Lynne. I miss you buddy. You brought such joy into our lives. I was there the day you were born and your mom, Kim and your dad, Gibby were talking about what to name you. My sister Cindy and I both said at the same time, "How about Tom." LOL, when Gibby was little, he said he didn't like his name. Said he wanted it to be Tom, so we started calling him Tom. He didn't like it though. Funny. But, Jeremy Lee was the perfect name for you! Sometimes it feels like yesterday that your Dad and I drove to California for the Memorial Service and funeral. Surreal. Love is always in our hearts for you, a true hero."

I wear my braclet every day and always say a prayer when I put it on. Jeremy...thank you for your scarifice! You are an amazing man! My thoughts and prayers are with you!"

Aunt Cindy of Sioux Falls, SD

Hey My hubby It has been almost 6 years since we lost you. Our wedding anniversary is coming up on January 14th and like everyone else says it seems to get harder as time goes by, it definitely does. I am now remarried and have a daughter, but I cant help but to think everyday I look at him and my little girl what it would be like if I had been able to have this life with you like I was supposed to and we planned. I really miss you more than anyone can ever know. Wow this year we would have been married for 6 years. Things are so different without you and it just sucks. I wont be in San Diego for our wedding anniversary but I will be there soon after and cant wait to have my time with you again. I totally miss visiting you and leaving you flowers and flags and everything. Moving away was the hardest thing I have ever had to do since I lost you. I beat myself up about it every single day. I love you so much and am so glad I was able to be your wife. Although I lost you I wouldnt want to lose you any other way. You passed away as my HERO!!! You were the bravest man I have ever known. I only regret we didnt have a baby that I could tell about how amazing its dad was. I do tell my daughter now (Jaelynne). Its cute she knows how to say your name and sees the pictures that are up all around the house of you and points and says Jeremy. My new husband Bradly also tells her that you are a hero and that her mommy loves Jeremy so much! It breaks my heart every time but I am so happy that I have another husband that understands and that helps keep your memory alive with me everyday. Bradly and I look at your pictures and he explains some of the stuff that is in them. He also listens to all my wonderful stories I have of you and I. Jeremy I want you to know that I am so proud of you, and that I love you so much! I wish I could bring you home all the time but at the end of the day I know it will never happen, but I will see you again and I hope you are waiting for me to pick up where we left off with open arms. I love you and Happy 6th year wedding anniversary! YOu were the best husband a girl could ever ask for! xoxo"

"I just attended a memorial service in Pierre SD August 8, 2009, for you and the 26 other South Dakotans who gave their life for freedom. My sister told me of someone's idea to change the quote that expresses a good sentiment. "Land of the free, home of the brave" should be changed to Land of the free BECAUSE of the brave. Thanks for being so brave, Jeremy. It has been 5 years since you gave your life. We miss you. And thank you Lyndsey for sharing your family with me. I know how much Jeremy loved you..and you loved him. I am always here for you. Love, Aunt Susie (Bohlman) Elton."

It has been almost 4 years now since that day. I just wanted you to know that I still think of you! You were such a "true" person and friend. I hope your mother is doing well! I can still picture that day like it was everyday, watching you throw the frisbee with your buddies next to our barracks. You looked so happy that day, as always. I want you to know that I went to your resting place in San Diego when I got home from Iraq. It is beautiful there, overlooking the water. I saw that someone wrote below that they are visiting your site and placing flags and flowers there for you now. I live in Virginia now so it was good to hear someone is doing that for you. You know Jeremy, you ARE a HERO! You saved other lives that day while sacrificing your own. I will never, and I mean NEVER, forget you. I miss you so much! I met you in early 2004 so I didn't get much time with you, but the time we did have really meant a lot. You were always so happy and full of life, you never complained. I know everytime I would walk out to the patio between my building and yours and I would see you I would be soooo excited. You were always so down to earth and "chilled out" so you have a way at calming all of us after a long rough day.

I could go on and on and on about you!!! Again, Jeremy I miss you! Thank you for proudly serving with us and honor our beloved USA.

May God Bless you and your family!!! Until we meet again...

Very Respectfully,

Sarah Carroll (Ream), Quantico Va."

I am proud to have served along side of you, and to have known you. You and the thousands of brave men and women who have given their lives in the service of our country are the best this nation has. I still bear the scars both phiycally, and mentally from that day when you were taken from us, and I will always honor you, by living the best life I can. My children will know your name, and they will be proud.

"Jeremy was my friend. One of the few I have called "friend" in my life. I came to 1st LAR Battalion with him from SOI. We shared a great deal of pain and suffering in Praetorian Guard, together with our brothers who came to that platoon from LAV school. That was where we grew up. That was where we became Marines. I loved him, and I know all the Marines who really knew him loved him. Never backing down from a fight, and always smiling the entire time. That was Jeremy. I wish I could trade places with him. I wish I could have been there with him. He was and is a better man than I will ever be."
Cad Hoyt of Huntsville, TX

"Jeremy, I think about you evey minute of everyday, I haven't really said much or done much to show how much I loved you and miss you. I was really shocked and extremely mad. I didn't know how to feel and how to react to such a great loss. So, I stood back in the shadows most of the time, not because I didn't hurt but because I was so so mad at the world and evryone in it. I miss you so much it hurts. I always wish the best for your family especially in there time of remembrece of you. I may not show it, but I lost a piece of my heart when I lost you. I'm sure lots of people feel the same way. I hope and pray to see you soon and not just in my dreams. Lots of love, peace"

"Jeremy you are my goofy little cousin who grew up into a man so fast before my eyes. I miss your sillyness dearly and playing darts every christmas. It's just not the same without you here. I can't wait to see you again and I know you are watching over all of us. You have made us so proud!"
Lexie Ricci of Sioux Falls, SD

"Jeremy B its been a while and not a day goes by that i dont think of you, i have pictures on my fridge from the beach and bahrain what good times. We all miss you so much and i cant wait til i see you again. Time has passed and i always think about how we are both supposed to be out and chillin in the "fsd". i was writing about you one day and i think the reason it hurts the ones that know you and love you so much is because of the person you are, you know there are some people that you meet in your life time and when you meet ones that are special you know it and you know that you will probably never meet another person with that same personality and thats what makes you so special. you could bring anyone up when they felt down, and when anyone hung out with you they knew that it would be a good time. i miss you alot and carrying your casket was one of the hardest things i have ever had to do. i would do anything for you to be back but i know its not possible so all i can do is try my hardest to keep your spirit alive. you have touched so many peoples lives and there arent words to express what you have meant to everyone.

"I am Jeremy Bohlman's aunt. Just yesterday I was looking at photos my sister had enlarged of Jeremy. Such a handsome young man. I am so glad to know that people visit Jeremy's gravesite in San Diego. I live in Florida, attended the funeral, but will probably not have the opportunity to visit San Diego very often.

I am still so sad at losing such a fine young man to this war.

Jeremy and his widow are always in my thoughts and prayers.

Pray for peace and our hero."

"To the family of Jeremy L. Bohlman:

The Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation will be honoring your loved one at the non-denominational Memorial Day Sunday worship service at 11:00 a.m. on 29 May. We will remember the casualties of the Global War on Terrorism from Minnesota … and the neighboring states of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Outside of the historic Fort Snelling Veterans Memorial Chapel will be a “Memorial Garden” filled with white crosses bearing the names of the war dead … including your loved one.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship as we pay tribute to the sacrifice made by your service member and family. Our pastor, U.S. Army Chaplain, LTC Kenneth L. Beale, Jr. will preach a message entitled “Remembering Our Freedom.” A former Soldier and country music songwriter and performer “Rockie” will pay a special musical tribute. At the conclusion of the worship hour, all of the congregation will be invited to silently pay their respects at the garden and place poppies at each of the crosses. An honor guard squad will be on hand to fire vollies as the US flag is lowered to half-staff and Taps is played.

As this Christian worship service has traditionally been well attended, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (612/970-7866) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans’ name and the number of persons attending.

Greg Taylor of Point Loma San Diego CA

"To the Family and friends of the Honorable Lance Cpl. Jeremy Bohlman:

As an activist, and like many war activists I have been distracted by the emotions and politics. I began to forget exactly what I was fighting for: the well-being of the soldiers who are fighting for this country and all else who are affected.

I have always separated the war from the soldier. I have felt extreme anger when people blame the soldiers, and unload all their political beliefs on to them. Regardless of how we as individuals feel about the war which Jeremy fought in, it is they who are on the front lines. It is they who made sacrifices for both people who support their cause and for people who do not. It is they who set aside their life in the pursuit of protecting our happiness. And regardless of the war, and if it was justified or not, their intentions are of highest respect.

I am unsure of my contemporaries, but I will be the first in line when it comes time to erect a memorial to your child or friend's cause. Despite if I agree with the war itself, Jeremy passed with every intention to serve and protect.

As I said, I am very sad we, as Americans lost this young man. Jeremy is one year younger than I am, and it is horrible he faced death at such an early age.

Today, instead of focussing on the war and whether we should have fought it, I am going to focus my efforts on encouraging people to vote wisely this election, to vote for the candidate who will win this war in an efficient and timely manor so no more soldiers must die than necessary. The war has started, we cannot erase history. I will never tell or suggest how anyone should vote, I have faith the people will choose the right candidate provided they always remember Jeremy and those who have fallen along side him.

So, to the friends and family of the honorable Lance Cpl. Jeremy Bohlman, I want you to know I will never forget what your son was willing to do for us. His death is the greatest symbol of his sacrifice for me, even as someone who does not support the war he fought, he was willing to fight unconditionally for all of us. And I think that is an excellent and respectable thing.

Let it be known, while some activists forget why Jeremy joined the Marines, and get tangled up in the politics of it all, I know he joined to protect us. And I am certain he died with that same intention.

For this reason, I would like to use Jeremy's name as a reminder to me that these soldiers are people. That I will never become wrapped up in the politics, and stay focussed on my efforts to bring the soldiers home safely and end the war.

Please read the following very carefully. I think I have made it very clear I am not against Jeremy, nor his personal intention to fight in Iraq. I would like to tattoo his name as a memorial and a personal reminder onto my wrist, similar to the servicemen-oriented activists did with bracelets during vietnam.

But unlike these bracelets, this tattoo is permanent, just as the death of your brave son is. I cannot imagine the sacrifice he made, but I would like to always remember him as a symbol for all who have fallen in Iraq. I did not choose Jeremy for any reason, he is equal like all human beings.

It would be my honor if you would give me permission to have this done. I will not use your son's name if you wish me not to. I want to be a serviceman-oriented activist, not a anti-war pacifist. I am not an extremist, and i promise to uphold your son's reputation.

I understand if you would like to get to know me and my beliefs better, and I fully understand if you do not want me to use your son's name.

But please reply either way, I mean no disrespect, and I am extremely sorry if I had said anything to cause you grief.

Thank you for this opportunity,
Shawn Kearney
