"I served briefly with SSG Evey in the 7th Cavalry, he was a fellow scout in the platoon next to mine in Blackhawk Troop. He was an acquaintance of mine, but we had dear friends in common. I had to inform one of his good friends of his death in the months afterwards and I also spoke with his father via telephone and shared some happy memories of our hijinks around fort hood in the years we served together. My most vivid memory of SSG Evey though is from 2005 when I had just returned from OIFII and he was at Fort Hood with the 4th infantry Division and preparing to deploy in support of the next wave to leave fort Hood, most likely for OIFIV. I asked him how this had come to pass, because I was shocked he was there; the last I had heard of him he had left the military and was in the civilian world.
"I just missed it Boyd, I missed leading soldiers..." I remember giving him directions to our motor pool and the contact info for our motor sergeant, he was placed in charge of getting vehicles from returning units in order for his unit to be ready to deploy as soon as possible. I am not surprised they gave him this responsibility as a young Sergeant.
From What I understand about the circumstances of his death, he died saving the lives of his men.

Thus spake brave Horatius:'To every man upon this earth
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers, And the temples of his Gods.'"
Jeremiah Boyd former SFC US Army of Carleton, MI USA

"I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry. I understand in theory only that war is a part of human nature but so is love and caring. I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have. All my love and respect. ogersteiner@yahoo.com

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Evey-It's Memorial Day Weekend, and I just want you to know that I am thinking of Jason this weekend. Accually, I think of him and you every day. I can assure you that it's not just "a day off" for me. As per previous postings, my son, Vincent Sakos, was with patrol with Jason when he died. Vince is still with the 1-10th, and on his 2ed tour of duty in Iraq. Feel free to contact me anytime. Sincerly, Christopher V. Sakos"
Christopher V. Sakos of Hampton, N.J.

"Jason, I remember being in the same group with you going on mid-tour leave from FOB Charlie. We were about the same age, even though you were an E6 and I was an E4. You never had a problem seeing past my rank and talking man to man with me. I always wanted to thank you for that. I hope you are at peace. You were taken too soon, and you will be missed."
Scott Nichols of Pennsylvania

"I remember the day I saw you last, I was rolling out on a mission and I saw you walking on the FOB near Apache's Barracks. My exact words were "Oh man!, SSG. Evey, I should say what's up." But I didn't and I have regretted not doing so ever since that day. If only I had known that you would be killed later that day, I would have done alot of things different. Life is more precious than we realize, and I wish I could have said hello that one last time. I'm sorry I didn't, take it easy brother."
Sgt. Ching of Hawaii

"It's memorial Day, 2008, and I just want you to know I am thinking of Jason. Memorial Day is not just a day off for me anymore. My son, PFC., now SPC. Vincent Sakos was in his platoon, and with him when he died. Vince is still in the Army at Ft. Carson, CO, and the 1-10 will be going back again for another tour this summer. I sure hope the war ends soon. I know we can't let 9-11 go unanswered, though. ------------Christopher V. Sakos"
