"Im awful sure this is in vain, but it's therapeutic for me so here goes: 15+ years bro . . . got into a bit of a tiff with a band you "would have" liked on Facebook last night - no respect for our country, or what we did, or anything, man - Will be sending them a strongly worded "fan mail" letter with our last picture together before you got killed enclosed - maybe I'll go easy on them, though, haha.

You continue to bring joy to many - I played some of our old songs for a friend who had never heard them recently. . . he LOVED them! Ugh . . . we really could have done something with that music thing . . .

Anyways - I dunno - to quote the song played at your funeral "How I wish you were here. . . "

"I must say that you and I had our own way of seeing things. Thanks for all you gave me as well as your own life for others. It may be almost four years but I still see you standing next to me. We may not be able to see our dreams on this plane together anymore but I want you to know that I know you are still there helping me achieve mine. I am doing it for the both of us. I love you and I have not felt like I was alone since the day I met you. R.I.P. With all my love."

My brother was SFC Jared C. Monti. Tell your family I said hello and I hope to hear from you.
