"I remember Marquees as incredibly bright and fun. I knew him in our unit 1/167 in 2001. I think of him often and hope his family knows how much he is missed. Always, when I think of those lost in GWOT, Marquees Quick comes to mind. Thanks, brother. You are a hero to me."
COL Roland Beason of Stuttgart, Germany

"Sgt Quick was also known as Mr. Quick when he taught so many of us computer skills, in jails and community centers. Always professional, kind, and patient. I remember the day you told us that you were called back to serve. My heart was truly broken when read about what happened I can say without a doubt that your soul is heaven bound. Rest in peace Mr. Quick"

"I ran the Tunnel to Towers run in Mobile on 9/15/2013 and SGT Marquees Quick was the fallen hero's name on my race bib. I looked him up to know who he was and how he sacrificed himself in service of our country. Thanks to his family. Vr, CDR Allen Adkins, USN"
Allen Adkins of Daphne, AL

"It was a great honor to have served with him. Reading the words of his friends and Soldiers after his time in the Scout Platoon 1/167INF makes me proud. Proud of the leader that he was and the effect he had on others. He was an intelligent Trooper who always had time for his computer-illiterate PSG, often respectfully making fun of me whenever I needed a technology lesson.

Go easy, Amigo, we'll meet again. Sabre07"
Curt Carpenter of Alabama

"I am so disturbed to hear this news! I was just at Armed Forces day at Ft. McClellan and happened to see your photo on the memorial wall. I broke down instantly. I had been trying to look for you on Facebook and had been thinking about how your business Quick Computers was doing. Sigh...I'm so sorry I didn't call you back that last time while you were visiting Vegas. My condolences go out to the Quick family and friends."
Venus of Anniston, Al

"What's the business brother, You and I went to Huffman Highschool together, but we graduated different years. My Mom let me know you passed and I never had a way of letting you know we would miss you. I googled your name and found this site. Although you've been gone a day doesn't pass when one of the sons of Birmingham doesn't cross my mind. I'm a soldier too, SSG in 4ID currently on a 15 month deployment to Iraq. We'll finish the job and see that you didn't sacrifice all in vain, we'll take it from here you've paid your dues brother."

"SGT Quick, it has just been over a year now and not a single day goes by where i haven't thought about you and 19 Aug at least once. It was my absolute honor, pleasure and privilege to work with you during our time together in Germany and Ramadi. You are truly one of a kind and represent the best of what our Army and country is all about. What i wouldn't give to be able to talk to you just one more time. I miss you, and am a better person for having known you....
God bless you and your family,
SFC Olienyk"

"Quick, I think about you every day and will always remimber our talks and times together. You are my brother and always have been. I think back to the lessons you taught and the way way you carried yourself as a SOLDIER. You will always be a role model for future soldiers even the ones who never had the honor of knowing you. I will always have you by my side for guidance and will keep my eyes to the skies for your smile. I WILL SEE YOU ON THE HIGH GROUND BROTHER. Watch over us."
Sgt. Will Crane of A 5-1 CAV Ft. Wainwright Alaska

"Quick you were my brother and like Barr said I will never forget that day and I will never forget what an honorable person and soldier you were brother. I will see you in fiddlers green and we will share a shot in honor, brother. RECON!!"

"Quick my man... I will never forget your giant smile, the way you tolerated running that orderly room by yourself sometimes, and us weathering those training meetings together. I will miss the jokes and the stories and the afternoon long games of Halo in the barracks with you and the rest of the boys. You were a good man and the world is less without you in it. I hope to meet you again in the next world my friend. God speed.
