"To the family of Carl Fuller:

God Bless you and your family. It has been a while since this happened.. but I have just now brought myself to look up his name. My name is Sgt Michael Arflin, and I was in B 2-121Inf on Camp Striker, in Bagdad Iraq. I served with your loved one, and quickly gained a love and respect for him that could not be matched. He was a wonderful man, and a great soldier. He always had a smile and a kind thing to say, no matter what was going on. God Blessed me for knowing him, and GOD BLESS YOU ALL for your sacrifice. May the rest of your years be filled with peace, and may you know happiness and Joy through our Lord Jesus Christ, as I know Carl is with him."

"Carl Fuller was a good friend of mine and a very important member of my squad, "Team Juno." He was the wise old man, never said a bad word about anyone and always encouraging us. Carl was put in for the Bronze Star in OIF 1 for his actions in trying to save an MP's life and administering first aid to several others during a Hum-vee accident.
He sincerely helped to keep our squad a tight-knit team. We prided ourselves on being the most requested squad for missions and he was responsible for that, too.
He helped me immensely on a deeply professional and personal level after I made a huge mistake. He was there for me, I wish I could have been there for him.
Carl Fuller, he never took his Kevlar off. A role model for this soldier. I miss you, Carl. A lot."
SSG Ken Boyd, Team Juno of Grand Rapids, MI

"I am Carl's niece he was the gratest man I ever knew. I liked him so much that if he was my age I would date him. He was so cool and funny. I loved him so much. I also speak for my mom his sister please keep us in you prayers also his family and many friends. Thank You."
Bree of Tifton, Georgia/USA

"Dear Family, You are in our prayers. We have already been through this once with our youngest son in April 2004. Now my husband prepares with the 48th to go and continue the fight that has been started. Their memories will live on..."
Jan Johnson of Lyerly, Ga.

"Just wanted you to know that your loss will not be forgotten. I felt very privilaged to serve on SSG Fuller's Honor Guard today. To see how many friends and family attended, and to witness the pride and professionalism of the soldiers respresenting him, especially those from within his own unit, I would like to think that he would have been pleased. I did not know him personally but I knew of him while I was previously assinged to his sister unit at Fort Gillem, the 221 MI. I can only hope that we have honored him today as a hero should be. God Bless you and remain strong, for God Will prevail."

I am a small and precious child.

My Dadís been sent to fight.

The only place Iíll see his face,

is in my dreams at night.

He will be gone too many days

for my young mind to track.

I may be sad, but I am proud.

My daddyís got your back.

I am a caring mother.

My son has gone to war.

My mind is filled with worries

that I have never known before.

Each day I try to keep my thoughts

from turning dreadfully black.

I may be scared, but I am proud.

My son has got your back.

I am a strong and loving wife,

with a husband soon to go.

There are times Iím terrified

in a way most never know.

I bite my lip and force a smile

as I watch my husband pack.

My heart may break, but I am proud.

My husbandís got your back.

I am a U.S. soldier.

Serving proudly, standing tall.

I fight for freedom, yours and mine

by answering this call.

I do my job while knowing,

the thanks it sometimes lacks.

Say a prayer that Iíll come home.

Itís me who has got your back.

Same thing to you that I said to Brunson. You always had a big smile on your face. I still remember playing in Baghdad, Iraq. Coming under a mortar attack and having to pause the game I was winning. You made the ultimate sacrifice for your team and mission, You are my hero brother.
