"Carlos, It is Memorial Day weekend, and now as well as every other day, I would like to say "Thank You" for your sacrifice. It was such and honor and a genuine pleasure to have stood beside you in uniform. The world is a better place because of you, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
Thank You"

"I knew SPC Gonzalez as the quiet soldier who would do anything to help you out. We worked 20 feet from one another in the 101st Airborne Division Main Head Quarters (DMain). I was on leave when the round hit the parking lot and only learned that my friend and another soldier, SGT Amanda Pinson, were no longer with us, when I returned 3 days later. I have never had the feeling that I got when I heard that news. I, as well as the rest of our brothers and sisters, will always remember March 16th, 2006. We miss you Carlos and continuously pray for your family."
SGT Chris Harbour of Athens, TN
