"Never Forget! Lance gave the ultimate sacrifice for us and our country. He was a true hero whom we all must never forget."
Tony Cornett of Morro Bay, Ca.

"Lance was not only a hero, but a great friend. I grew up with Lance, he was my brother's best friend. I remember when he was just a goofy kid, full of life. I loved him dearly and I always will. He was family. He served with pride, loyalty and dedication. I will never forget you Lance. His memory will live on with the influence and great impression he left on everyone he met. To every other person who has lost someone serving our country my heart goes out to you."

"Cornett family,
Everyone from the Golden Dragons and especially the Scout platoon remembers "Net". A dedicated soldier/NCO with outstanding abilities and a "never quit" mind set. We miss him."
Mike Boykin of US Army

"Brother, I saw Mark Jr. at the PX and he told me what happened. I remember all the pool torture with you guys way back when, the water train-up at LeJeune, your stories about chasing those thugs away from your house after they broke in, and your never quit attitude. You were the best among us, and you proved it all the time without trying. You will be missed by all of us. God speed."
JP of Ft Bragg, NC

"The world stopped turning for me on February 3rd. When I got the news, I think I cried for at least an hour. Everyone kept asking if I was ok and I told them of course not! Lance was younger than me but I looked up to him. When I talked to him it was like I knew him my whole life. He was a Hero to me before and he always will be. Sandra and family, you know I will always be there for you if you ever need me. Save me a spot up there Lance and tell God to keep the US Free!"
Randy Goble of Fayetteville, NC, USA

"To Cornett's family: I was honored to serve with "Net" from Basic Training to the golden dragon scouts. He was a man among men who will never be forgotten."
