"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

"To the family and friends of Caesar Viglienzone,

I wanted you to know that you were in my prayers yesterday and today. My church, First Baptist of Orlando, FL had a special service yesterday and distributed flags for all of our hero soldiers lost in Iraq. My flag had Caesar's name on it, so his flag will now fly until July 4, 2006 in a special field at our church. I am humbled by Caesar's service and honored to have carried a flag for him and you'll remain in my prayers as the family and friends of a true American hero! God Bless you all and God Bless America."
Kevin Rinker of Orlando, FL

We miss you, but are honored and aided by knowing that in your 21 years, and key achievements, you left a legacy for others to aspire to. We all must die,
but your choice of selfless service,
confronting an evil enemy of freedom,
raises your memory above the average
young man's life. May more seek to follow your example, not only in music or independent thought, but also in
dedicated service, standing up to the violent minority of humans. Rest in Peace..."
Uncle Walt of Pensacola FL
