"I didn't personally know anyone who was killed fighting to defend our country. But I never want to forget the sacrifices of so many young men and women. I am so proud it makes me cry at times. 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 grieving families and friends 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
A hundred times a day, I remind myself that my inner and outer life depends on the labors of other men, living and dead, and I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am receiving. - Albert Einstein"

"My deepest condolences go out to all of SGT Arthur Williams' family and friends. He was an outstanding Soldier. I knew him, personally and served with him, "on top of the hill" in Korea. Although we were in different Platoon's, in Charlie Company, we live just a few doors apart. The news has hit harder then I would have expected, but I can say I will never forget. I wear a stainless steel bracelet, with his name on it, everyday. And would like to offer the same bracelet to any family members that would like one. I can be reached at scott.m.williams@us.army.mil

All our prayer's are with you, always.

"I don’t believe that we understand all that you gave, or how your sacrifice will affect the future for our sons or daughters. I believe you confronted the evil that has enslaved mankind throughout history, the same evil that many American soldiers have confronted in many battles.

I will teach my son and daughter of your sacrifice and your heroism.
