"06 AUG 2014 - This morning I saw a car with a GOLD STAR MOTHER/FAMILY PLATE...the first I have actually seen. Emotions from those I served with and whom did not comeback flooded me with strong and lasting images and memories. Few words if any could ever adequately thank Jeremiah's family for a son willing to serve his country with the distinction that he did. I am humbled and I am grateful to his family for the son they raised. "THANK YOU !"
Steve of Mesa, AZ

"I have never met you but I drove today behind a car that had a memorial sticker for you. That touched me profoundly. Thank you for your courage, dedication to keep our country free. You are a true hero and I know the Lord had his arms open to your arrival. May your family find comfort in their journey without you here in this life."
Louise of Phoenix, AZ

"8 years this sunday. How time flies, but memories never fade. You are missed by all of us Black Knight boys. The sacrifice wasnt yours to make. It was ours, but you made it anyway. Our lives will be forever linked and changed. I will always be honored for knowing you and watching over you on the first leg of your trip home."
Sgt Bartman (Black Knight 1-1G) of Kalamazoo, MI

"7 years later, you are still missed. A war brought our two units together in hell. I enjoyed working alongside you as I know my crew did too. Your sacrifice is not forgotten and I have so much pride when I tell your story when others ask about my bracelet. Until we meet again..."
Bartman, Black Knight 1-1 of Kalamazoo, MI

"Jeremiah, brother, I remember you as such a happy man in high school and couldn't believe how strong of a person you were back then. You knew you had a path in life at such a young age and couldn't believe your strength. I'm sad I couldn't have served with you at the same time, but you will always be a brother in arms to me. Miss you man and will always cherish your family"
Michael Vatt, Staff Sergeant of San Diego, Ca

"Robinson was a soldier, a friend, and true American. Going through basic training and serving in Iraq with Jeremiah lead to my envy of his demeanor and outlook on life.

Jeremiah will always be remembered and to his family, know he is in my prayers."

"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"
Scott E. Steiner of Worthington, OH

"When we lived behind you in Mesa, I used to wonder how you could possibly handle a house of active noisy happy boys. Now I wonder at the strength it must take, daily, to handle a house minus one of those boys. My heart breaks for all of you and I pray that you find some comfort in knowing that we are all indebted to Jeremiah, and to you, for the sacrifices you all made for us."
Lee Dann of Ennis, Texas, USA

"I was a friend and teammate of Jeremiah when we were at Skyline High School. I remember how dedicated he was to make himself the best at what he did, with baseball when he was a catcher and in wrestling. He was my brother in more than one way, him and I were both catchers in baseball and went through every drill and instruction together. He was a great person and his loss hit home for me. We'll meet again on the other side of the veil."
Collin Sparks of Mesa, AZ/USA

"I served With Jeremiah in iraq, He was one of the best, most dedicated and selfless soilders that i have ever had the privlage to meet and if any of us deserve to be called heros he is by far at the top of the list. I'll miss you man."
PFC James Williams 860th MP CO of Bagdahd, Iraq

"I went to basic training with Jeremiah I respected and wanted to be just like him, when in that enviroment you get a lot of soldiers who start to look out for just themselves. That was never Jeremiah he was always watching out for others leading as best as he could always a friendly word and never cross with anyone. It brakes my heart that i never knew the man behind the soldier. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family forever he is missed more then words can discribe."

"Jeremiah was a wonderful young man. I grew up with him. I knew him very well. we went to the same high school, and we were neighbors. I loved him, he respected everyone, and was everyones friend. He ingored people that was cruel to me, and was my true friend, and i am sadded by his death but i know he died doing something that he LOVED doing. I thank the robinsons for thier sacfirce so we can live our life the way we live our life. I know it is very hard, i am still sadded but i know that jeremiah died doing something he loved and wanted to do the whole of his life.
This saturday is his upcoming 21st birthday i am going to make a video and respect him and think about him.. he is a such a good person and he deserve that kind of honor. I thank Amy and Burt for Jeremiah he wouldnt been here if it was not for them. It was a gift from the up above, and we only have a wonderful person for a short time. Life isnt fair but its how life works.

"Dear Robinson family,

My thoughts and prayers go out to you everyday. I went to basic training with Jeremiah and I remember him very well. He was in my platoon and he helped me so much through obstacles and always told me I can do it no matter what. I miss him terribly. I know nothing can be said to ease your pain however I would like to thankyou for having such a wonderful son. I just wanted you to know in the time I spent with him in basic training he impacted my life.
Jeremiah.... Thank you and God speed. I will see you later."

"Dear Robinson Family,

We extend our heartfelt sorrow for the loss of your beloved JEREMIAH. There are no words that can ease your pain, but we hope you find some comfort in knowing that JEREMIAH is an American Hero and will Never Be Forgotten.
