"I knew Jonathan, K. price since his 1st day as a Marine with Lima Battery. During that short time I watched him quickly grow into an outstanding U.S. Marine who was loved dearly among his brothers in Lima. I spent down-time with him on Blue Diamond & time on combat patrols with him outside the wire. He always conducted himself like a true professional and a fierce Marine. At the same time he showed a genuine love for the locals in our AO, as he recognized their desire to have a small taste of the freedoms that we have here at home. That says a lot about Kyle's character. He embodied the phrase "No better friend , no worse enemy". My prayers stay with his family to this day, along with every other Marine from Lima 3/10 who fell in al Anbar Province. Semper Fidelis."
