"I remember the day we mobilized, I remember the day we deployed, I remember how you always laughed and smiled, nothing ever seemed to damped your spirit,I didn't know you as well as the others in Delta company, but I know what kind of a person you were. I remember the day I heard we had lost you. It brought home the fact more of us might not make it back. I think of my two brothers we lost there. you were loved like a brother by all in the company. They all still miss you and we spoke about you often after we came home. told stories of things you did at A.T. and on drill weekends. you are still missed."
Michael Ravellette of Spencer Indiana

"I was asked to give a few words at the services at Kuwait, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Now I am glad to see this sight to have the opportunity to write something that will last. The memory that I tell my kids and will always have is 3am after the scud attack and sitting outside enjoying a cuban cigar and talking about life and all we have accomplished.We were always joked at about being old men from the air force but, I believe we were there to help the younger soldiers cope.I will not forget. Brother"
SPC John Spangle of Vincennes,In

You will always be my favorite cousin. We had so much fun shooting pool in your dad's garage, and on those cruise ships with the family. Thank you for being a wonderful cousin, and thank you even more for being a patriotic American willing to give all to our freedom. God bless."
