"B.J. the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life is make the phone call to Momma to confirm you were in fact gone. Although she confirmed it I didn't want to belive it, you were always my brother even if we were not born form the same mother. I remember the first time I met you in 8th grade and I remember the day we left for basic training together like it was yesterday. I am honored to have known you and I just wish I had the chance to tell you how great of a friend you were before you shipped out. I know you are in a better place, but I want you to know that you are missed dearly by everyone from Vegas to Indiana to Manchester and especially the 2-19 in Ft. Benning."

"To the family of Brian(BJ): I met Brian once, he was a friend of my fiancee. He was getting ready to leave, and I thanked him for serving his country. Not realizing how much he and his family would sacrifice for mine and others freedoms. I didn't know him well, but he made a great first impression. He and his family will always have my respect. He is a true hero. I will never forget."
