"Miss you brother, our boys have grown into young men as I'm sure you know. I know your a proud pop looking down on us. Love ya bro, see you on the flip side!"

"You were not really my uncle, but that's what I called you. 10 years later and your positive, strong willed personality most definitely stuck to and 8 year old. I just wish you could see me now, you were always like a dad to me and I know you definitely would've pushed me more in who I am and what I desired. I know everyone misses you, I sure as heck do. There's times where I honestly don't feel like you're really gone, as if you're there with me at my track meets, supporting me. I have just started my first year of collegiate track, and because it is college, the 300 hurdles are gone and its bumped up to 400 meter hurdles. It's a difficult race, but I have decided that knowing I'll be running it for you and in memory of you, I will never do bad. I'll push forward with the strength and courage you unknowingly showed me and it may just be a race but it will be my race for you. I love and miss you very much uncle Sean, hope you're still killing it in heaven."
Olivia Williamson of Corpus Christi, Texas

"Sgt. Miles you were an inspiration. I met you and you were you, pissed you had to deal with some dumb boot but you taught me. You inspired strength in me. I remember hearing of your death I truly was in shock you and Sgt hodshire were mythical creatures. You were why I was never afraid. I got blown up no big deal. You and he were why Easy was easy. I miss you and how you were so brusque. Those one vic 7-ton convoys we'd go one and say * zaidon. I can't believe I knew someone like you. I was a stupid kid who got lucky enough to know a man who had a family and I am so sorry that I could not have changed places. Your family is so beautiful and they still do as you which is help me deal with you not coming home. You are the epitome of an NCO and I hope I see you again because you did way more than your billet demanded"
Charleston Burke of Fort Worth,Tx

"You were my SOI instructer and then i ended up having you in my company in 2/2. I remember i was very excited to have such and experienced marine and leader in our outfit. I will always remember the game of risk we played the day before your death. You had us basically beat across the board but after a grueling 2 hour game you gave up at the end(when he could of beaten us)just to look at pictures of your family. It sounds silly but that was the kind of man he was and still is. I honor you with all that i have. Semper Fi Sgt."

"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Sean Miles. My husband and I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Michael Miles, Sean's father, at Rolling Thunder yesterday (May 27, 2007). A friend of Sean's has built a tribute motorcycle to Sean, it was beautiful and moving. We learned that Sean came from a proud military family. Sean served his country and was a very proud Marine and in the end paid the ultimate price. I know he is extremely missed by family and friends. On this Memorial Day and every day, let us never forget our country's brave soldiers and their families and friends. I pray to God to give you strength in this difficult time."
Lois and Ben Ewing of Georgetown, DE

"Missing you more each day."

"Its almost been a year now Miles the Marines here at ITB,SOI still think of you."
SSgt M. of Jacksonville, nc

"Sean I will always see you at the door holding Tyler asking "where you been". How you pushed your Marines to be the best, but never let any other mess with them, How your students would follow you around at Wallmart just to see what you were doing. How you would always call your Mom to make sure she was okay and didn't worry. How you and Gen always had time for a Marine in need. How many lives you touched. Even in this time of devastation, the tales of your life brought tears of pride and a smile to all who knew you. I will think of you as being out in the field. Knowing I will never see you again in this life is too much for me to deal with. The Marine you died saving came home son. You kept your promise to your men and to yourself. I will keep mine to you. Pops."
Michael Miles of Richmond Va
