It's Memorial Day 2015 and you're still thought of and missed. Thanks for being a great friend and awesome Scout. Until we meet again...."

"Hey Brother, I didn't know you as well as I would have liked, at least I got the opportunity to meet and serve with you. I will keep your friends and family in my thoughts and prayers and I look to the day we are all re-united on the other side. Take care brother, rest in peace."
Andrew Danen of Birmingham, AL

"SGT King you will never be forgotten. I remember the day you had fallen. Your vehicle relieved our vehicle pulling security near route Michigan. Shortly after my vehicle got back to post we were recovering from our mission that day we were told about what happened and we were all in disbelief about it and we just wanted to mount up and go after who did this but we couldn't. It wasn't no more then 30 mins after your vehicle took our position had this occured it just didn't make since to me since my vehicle sat in the same spot as your did for close to 6 hours without moving. Brother you'll always be in my thoughts. I think back to that day all the time trying to figure out what went wrong but I'll probably never know that answer. I hope your at peace and are looking down at your children and wife looking after them like I know you'd be. Scouts Out."
SSG Bunnell, Wayne Ret. of Kentucky

I heard about the sniper that had shot you through the radio while I was traveling through the same battlespace. I heard everything that day and was torn up inside hoping you would make it. I wrote an account of that day that I hope is as accurate as can be. I truly hope all the best for your family.
