I thank Justin for his sacrifice for our country. I thank Justin and everyone in the military for their sacrifice everyday.
I go to Winfield City High School. I play football, and I am the Student Body President. I am only able to participate in these activities because of those who sacrificed their lives before I was born. I thank them.

"To Justin;
Thank you and semper fi!"
Chris Hunt of Fort Worth Texas

You are in my thoughts everyday, and it helps so much to know that you are looking after Rodney. I remember the day Lisa and I were at the exchange by Subway on base, and I had just moved to Jacksonville. I felt really awkward being a dorky punk rock kid in the middle of a military base, but you made it a point to make me feel welcome.
If I ever felt confident about anyone watching my brother's back in combat, I will say that I was most confident in you. And, although you may not be with him physically, I know that you still have his back. Thank you for everything, and someday, I hope you may rest in peace.
I want you to know that know that no matter what, your smiling face will remain in my heart forever."
Dana Backues of Ballwin, MO/USA

"To The Hunt Family
Even though I've never met Justin, I feel very proud of him. He gave up everything to protect our freedom. And I have more heart sorrow for him, because he's was Elsinore High student. You always hope that no one you know ends up in this crazy war, So when you find out someone's life is lost and their from your home town, you feel a special respect for them. So Justin rest in peace buddy. May God be with you."
Julia Weaver of Arizona

"Justin, you always kept a smile on my face. When patrols were long or when the sun was beating down and miserable. I miss you man. And there isn't a night that goes by that you and the rest of the crew aren't in my mind. I love you brother!"
