"I didn't know Robbie, but my cousin and hero Sgt. Johnny J. Peralez Jr died beside him that day. Losing Johnny has been hard on me and I think of him everyday, but I pray for all those who were with him and I always have their families in my prayers. God bless you all!"

"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

"Thank you for your sacrifice, Robbie. I still remember our days on the wrestling team at St. Mary's. You were always one of the toughest wrestlers, and that obviously carried on with you as a Soldier. Your bravery came with no surprise to me, seeing how you used to have aspirations of skateboarding off one of the school's rooftops! God Bless you, your parents and brother."
