"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

"I knew him as "Chris". I'll never forget the fun times we shared while in high school together. Chris was a great friend, and anyone that got to know him, knew that he was a great guy, and could count on him for anything at all.

I loved Chris, I miss him, and I think of him and his family often.
