"It’s Memorial Day 2023 and I am again thinking about this young man and wondering if he is the same Jeremy Tamborello that was in my first grade classroom at Field Elementary in Littleton. I remember Little Jeremy so well. I can still hear his six year old voice. He was a very sweet little boy. If anyone knows if this hero was my student, I would love to know."
Rhonda Johnson (formerly Knoop) of Montrose CO, USA

"You sweet boy, the many times we ate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or just played in the grass by the apartment with my little girl. She loved playing with you so much but even more so your favorite game was army with soldiers behind the big trees in the Courtyard. I knew you would grow up to be something special and I think about you always, amazing young man! I will neve forget you!"
Audrey A Alvarado of Denver, colorado/denver

"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

"Today, 10/11/08, I received my hero bracelet with Jeremy's name on it. I want to let his family know, that although I don't know Jeremy, I will wear this bracelet in honor of him for the rest of my life. It is the least I can do for someone who lost his life protecting our freedom. My husband, who is a retired USAF Lt. Col. was drafted in 1972, but never had to go to war. I wear this bracelet in honor of him, as well. Much love to Jeremy'sa family."

"If tears could build a stairway,
And memories were a lane.
I would walk right up to heaven,
To bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye.
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.

My heart still aches in sadness,
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you,
No one will ever know.

You and angels around Gods happy throne.
I would have held you closer if I had known
