I was in your unit with you 3-15inf the best unit I've had the honor of serving in and serving beside the best countrymen. My love, pain heartbreak goes out to your family. I wasn't able to go to your memorial because u couldn't bare to witness what happen. Our 1st Sergeant at the time try to calm me down I cried so hard and for so long because I didn't believe that you were gone. I thought to myself we were just privates, you had so much to live for.

"Dear Family, I am just another person who lives in New York and I had the weirdest thing happen to me. I am a college student and I am in the paranormal investigations club and we were doing training and while the members were being picked up, my friend Cassie and I were trying to figure out the spirit that was lingering in my house. We got to asking about his name and his age and how he died. This is the information that was given.

28, Lee Lewis, He was 6" 0, he died in Iraq and that he knew her father somehow.

I got to thinking that since he was in Iraq, they would have posted his information online! I got to looking and I saw his name PLAIN AS DAY!!! I was very surprised to see that what we were getting was really true! He wants everyone to know that he is happier where he is and that hell be fine! Im very sorry for your loss but Im here to support you! Thank you for your time! With all blessings,

Erin M."
