"Warren was one of my soldiers in 1st Platoon Charlie Company (BLACKSHEEP!!) 2-156 IN(M) in Houma, Louisiana. I spent 6 years with Warren as an enlisted man and as an officer. Warren was my team leader when I first came to the "Blacksheep" family in 1998. I looked up to him as a new soldier since he recently had come to the unit from active duty. Warren took good care of me and made sure I knew what I needed to do and why. He is one of the reasons I went to become an officer. When I returned to the Blacksheep after I earned my commission, I was lucky to have Warren in my platoon again. Warren still was a soldier I looked up to and relied on many times. When I left the Blacksheep to go to Battalion headquarters, he was one of the soldiers I missed having there. He was my "go to" guy, when I needed something done, Warren was the person who I knew would be able to handle the task. When I found out Warren was killed, along with Kurt, Chris, Armand, Brad, and Huey, I felt like I lost my brothers. I just could not believe it. I still think of those men - men I knew for years - and I just can't imagine not seeing them on drill weekends or out in the feild where they could always make the tough times seem so easy. Warren will be greatly missed, not just by me, but the entire Blacksheep family. To the Murphy family, I was proud to know and serve with your son. He was a hell of a man, and I would have gladly given my life for him or any of the Blacksheep. God Bless You. BLACKSHEEP!!!"

We are so very sorry for your loss. The 256th Infantry Brigade of Lafayette has suffered greatly. Please try to comfort one another and know that all over America and the world you are in our thoughts, tears and prayers. As an Air Force veteran, it was hard being away from my family and friends and I knew that there was always the possibility of having to make the greatest sacrifice but I found enormous pride and self-fulfillment in serving such a great country.
