Received a note from Chase's Aunt on my windshield in KC, Mo. Thanking me for my service. No..Thank you! I cannot imagine the grief you must have suffered lossing your son. But his memory lives on through the thoughtful thank you notes your family leaves for those of us who served but did not sacrifice like you have. Thank you. God bless you.
You are in my prayers.

To the family of Pfc. Chase A. Edwards:
During the Veteran's Day Program at East Beauregard High School, I met Chase's parents. I want to say that my thoughts and prayers I have been with them. We live in a society that has distorted the true meaning of "hero"; Chase and the men and women of the US military are true heroes. Keep Chase's memories going!"
