"Hereís to the ones weíve loved and miss.
The ones we canít put upon our list.
The ones who made our Christmas bright.
The ones we canít tuck in that special night.
The ones we lost for unknown reasons.
Thereís a memory in every season.
The ones that bring a Christmas tear.
That sometimes carries on through the year.
The ones who we can never replace.
That add those holiday smiles on our face.
The ones who gave their lives at war.
That make you wonder exactly, what for?
The ones who paid the highest price.
To help protect anotherís life.
Christmas is a time for rejoicing and joy,
And so that youíll know I miss my little boy,
This comes as a Christmas thought for him and the others.
This comes from all of the hurting mothers.
Itís supposed to get better as time goes by.
So how come Christmas always makes me cry?
I know that your in a better place,
So I cry with a smile upon my face.
Cause I know that in spirit, that your right here.
And the bible makes it so perfectly clear.
I will see you someday during all of the seasons.
And even though it hurts, you died for a reason.
The Christmas tears all come from me missing you,
And I know without a doubt you miss me too.
So rather than spend this holiday blue,
I sat down and wrote these thoughts for you.
Iíll rejoice what you were, and always will be.
And Iíll leave you a present under the tree.
Merry Christmas SON.

"I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like your son and brother was a beautiful young man that I know you will miss terribly. One day at a time. Keep him in your heart forever. He will always be a hero to everyone but to you he was family. Take care and God bless you."

"A true hero you are Marshall...R.I.P brother"

"Sgt Caddy was my room mate at PLDC at hood. He was one bad dude. We were the only infantry guys in our platoon besides one mortar guy, so we stuck together. I found out at the PX in the green zone when I ran into a buddy of mine who was in 2/7. I was shocked then, and I still can't believe that so many of us have gone. I believe that we have a purpose in Iraq, I just wish the Iraqis would give up already. Im tired of burying my buddies. God Bless the Caddy family. Your boy was a good one."
Steve Campbell of Oak Ridge, TN

"I spent a lot of time with Hugh when we were kids in New Hope. He was younger than I was, but we spent time together playing basketball and video games. When I left for the military myself, he was still a kid. I never saw him again until I visited his grave this weekend in New Hope.

Now he is a veteran, a fallen patriot and a hero deserving the sincere thanks of every American."
Cory of Keedysville, MD

"I could not belive that he is gone...
but he stays in our hearts
I will love him forever"
Katarzyna Masierak of Poland

"To the Caddy family - especially to the mom... please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of your son. He was a true American HERO - serving our country and we all owe him a huge debt. The same goes to YOU - his mother. You raised a young man willing to serve his country and who ultimately paid ALL. My son is just 18 and is now in Nuclear Power School with the US Navy. He's looking forward to serving on a nuclear carrier as soon as next year. He's willing to serve our great country and to lay down his life if need be. As a mom - I can only imagine the great loss you've suffered in actually living this scenario out. Please know that your son's sacrifice is not forgotten and that this country is grateful for Marshall and for all who serve. Especially for the Fallen Heroes - such as your son. God bless you and from one military mom to another... here's a hug for you...


In Christian love,"
Doreen of Tigard, OR

We brought all your boys back to Carson with us so don't worry. Miss ya Red 4."

"To the Family of SSG Marshall Caddy;
I have had the pleasure and privilledge of serving with Marshall. He was one of my soldiers when I was stationed in Korea in 2000-2002, he was my gunner. He was an outstanding soldier and an upcoming true leader (he was an E4 at the time). We shared time and that can never be taken away. His memory will forever be in mine. I am very proud of him and He is in my prayers each and every night. I know he is lokking down on us all and doing the same for us. (Marshall, I want to take the time to tell you something that a soldier can not hear enough.... Thank You. You are a TRUE AMERICAN HERO. I pray each night for you, brother. Rest well. You are truly missed.). To the Caddy family: God Bless You."

"Hugh is and always be one of the greatest heros of my life. I thought losing my grandfather was hard but to see Hugh go ripped my heart out. It will never be easy but he taught me a lot. He taught me to believe in myself if no one else would and he believed in me, and that has made, and will make, all the difference. Thank you Hugh for your sacrifice of life that I and my children might go free. To the rest of my family may this draw us closer and let us only remember the good and forget the bad. I miss you and I'll always love you."
Jennie Harris of Perquimans County NC USA

"Sergeant Caddy, goodbye soldier and thank you. You are my hero."
Bill of Houston, Texas

"Hugh Caddy was my nephew and I want everyone to know what a very special man he was. He volunteered to go to Iraq. He felt it was his duty to be there. He was fighting for something he believed in, understanding the scarifice he may face. He was a brave young man and he is my hero. Hugh was loved so much by all his family and he certainly loved them. He had his dreams, but lost those dreams fighting to make this country a better place for all of us. We must never forget Hugh and all the fallen heros. We will miss him everyday.
I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to leave their messages. It has meant a great deal to our family.God Bless all of you and pray for all the other soldiers to make it home safe."
Patsy Robeson of Kitty Hawk,N.C.

"I donít believe that we understand all that you gave, or how your sacrifice will affect the future for our sons or daughters. I believe you confronted the evil that has enslaved mankind throughout history, the same evil that many American soldiers have confronted in many battles.

I will teach my son and daughter of your sacrifice and your heroism.
