I will keep your family in my prayers. I will miss you. I will certainly make a piture of strawberry margaritas in your honor... such a great friend. Such a great Soldier."

"To: Andre, Karen,Jonette and family,
You may not remember me, but I lived across the street from you in Cartersville, Ga. I dated Jonette for awhile in high school and thought a lot of Victoir.
I am sorry to hear about Vic!
He always knew he would join up and serve his country. He was a good person even when we were teenagers. I am proud that I got the chance to meet Vic. I am truly honored!
Brian Briggs"
Brian Briggs of Cartersville,Ga

"Hello Vic,
As the mighty 278th prepares to depart tomorrow I find myself thinking about our times in Iraq. I think this time their chances of contact are much less then during our cowboy and Indian days in 04-05. I pray that none of the soldiers departing this tour will meet you and Joey anytime soon. Please watch over them and give them guidance when the fog of war affects their judgment. Guide them through the streets and narrow avenues that lay before them. God Bless you Brother and until we meet again!

"To the Family of Vic.
I was a good friend of Vic's in 90 to 92 in the first Gulf War. Afterward we kind of lost touch with each other and I only now found out about this. When I saw the picture, I knew that it was Vic and my heart sank. He was a good friend back in the day and I had been trying to get in touch with him off and on over the years to no avail. This is a pretty hard way to find him. To his family you have my deepest sympathies and I wish you luck in the future."
Michael A. Harpham of Hillsboro, OR

"Hey Vic;
Although we parted ways after school we both went into the Army (our lifelong dreams at that point). I was saddened to hear of your death but, more to the point that we were never able to connect back to the kinship we had as kids. I know you gave your life for a cause you found just, and doing a job you loved. The world lost a true patriot on the day you died and we shall all be less because of that loss.

I hope your family can live comfortably knowing that you were not just another name rank and serial number.

I will never forget.

"To Vicís family and Friends:
Vic was a great man. We became friends on the very first day we meet in Jamestown. We shared a lot of the same interest. I had fun trying to run his name all together and sound French at the same time. Vic you were the man. I can only guess God had a higher calling for you. Until we meet again my Brother. Love and Honor your memory."
SGT Jeffery D Simpson of Centerville, TN

"I never knew your husband, father, or son, but he is remembered as a wonderful soldier through one of his his brothers-in-arms. Just want to remind you that many, many people that you don't know still think of him (and keep you in our thoughts and prayers)and know that he, in his own special way, touched many lives - including many youngsters in Iraq whose lives he changed just by serving. God bless you and thank you for the ultimate sacrifice. kat8887@yahoo.com"
Kate of Gatlinburg, TN

"Vic; though I didn't know you very well, I remember that you were always kind and smiling when I saw you(especially when you came to our Bunker to eat chow). You seem to have been upbeat all of the time and could make others at ease with your demeanor. I'll never forget the day that we found out what had happened to you and Joey that day. I remember thinking, this can't be happening........not to us. However our worst fears were true. You and Joey went to meet God that day and we were left to mourn and honor your memory. I know that you saw all of the soldiers from the 128th Infantry Battalion and members of the 278th Regimental Combat Team that were at your memorial service at FOB O'Ryan. I remember thinking of the first time I'd met you at the armory in Jamestown, you were in a good mood that day too or so it seemed. I guess that's just what kind of person you were. You were put here to make others feel at ease, even through the rough times.
Even though it's been over a year since I saw you last......I will never forget you and what you meant to K Troop. Until we meet again my brother..........."
SFC Jerry Asberry of Jamestown, TN
