"Wow, I never knew this site existed. Not sure what made me think of Lamont but after a quick Google search this is what I found. I still get tight in the stomach whenever I think of him gone. We used to jump off my house onto a trampoline until mom got home and yelled at us all. He joined the Corps a year after me, sometimes I wonder if I would have waited could I have altered events? He was a great man and a great friend. You will always be remembered brother."
Sgt Ceasar L. Martinez USMC / 1371 of Baltimore, MD

"I love and miss you sooooo much baby boy, its been 7 years and still hasn't been easy for me to come to grips. I still get choked up at times when something reminds me of our childhood. I love and miss you dearly!!!!"
Lanny Wilson of SAN ANTONIO, TX. USA

"Lil Bro!!! I MISS YOU....I LOVE YOU!"
Meka of Papillion, NE

"Like always i am yet again thinking of our time in the Corps together. I have just reenlisted for the second time and for whatever reason thought immediately of you. My life has indeed been changed from the experience of times passed however, much better men have fought and died in this uniform i continue to wear. For that reason alone i will press on with the life that chose me. I love and miss you Wil. Roll Out!"

"Just wanted you to know that your sacrifice has made an immeasurable difference here. There are days I don't want to get up and work, then I think of you and I can't wait to make the smallest of fractions of a difference you made. Love you bro"
Jason S. of Iraq

"It's been almost five years now bro...It still tears me up inside every time I think about you being gone. I remember being just kids and us wanting to join the military. I still remember 2nd grade when Jeff and I first met you. Man we were so attached to having such a good friend. I remember one time you were grounded in Germany and weren't aloud outside and I still kept going to your place and asking if you could come out to play until I was told to stop coming by and asking...haha. I remember getting my first girlfriend and being attached to you and your girlfriend, Katie, for the summer right before 7th grade. I remember coming back from Germany after a year and a half and not remembering a lot of people in Lawton going to high school but I knew you were still there next door ready to hang out and act like teenagers. You always had my back man even when I had to move to Florida. We always had each others back and that's what tears me up the most. The fact that I couldn't be there for you...I know you had good friends there that did everything they did but nonetheless it still tears me up. I have a really good friend that I have known since we joined the Marine Corps up in Ramadi right now and I'm stuck down here in Kuwait praying that he stays safe. I know God has plans for all of us but my heart breaks every time I think of you and that you're not here anymore. I know everything in this message may not make sense but it's not easy for me to write my feelings even after all this time. There's so much more I want to say but just can't find the words. I just want you to know that it was a blessing to know you for so many years. I just hope that I can bring so much happines in peoples lives as you did. You could definitely do that. The mood could be tense in the room and you sure knew how to ease the tension and make people happy. Jeff is a pretty funny character now. He can make me laugh on the simplest things. I hope I get to see him soon too. It's been since right after our 18th birthday after graduating boot camp that I've seen him. I just keep writting bro and don't want to end this but all I can say is I miss you.

If anyone would like to talk about this great hero and friend I would love to talk to you.

"My son was blown up but lived. WILSON was his BEST FRIEND. Please call me if you sense you would like to. My son continues to need closure. I explained to my son that I don't think anything would mean more to me on this Memorial Day then for one of his friends who was with him when they blew up, called and talked and shared all his memories of Wilson. My number is 210 710 0664. If you call, then I can get you, his family, in contact with our Purple heart son, who was Wilson's best USMC buddy...who grives for him. Thanks.
USMC Mom of Purple heart son
I am also looking for another of his buddies who died in the same explosion: USMC Fallen Hero: Sandoval. I can't seem to find him, but maybe because we aren't sure of the spelling. Thanks. If you, Wilson's parents, would like to hear and talk with one of your son's USMC Plt. give me a call and I will put you in contact together. It may help to have closure for both you and he."

".... Where do I start??? I never had the chance to meet you but I just found out today from my grandmother that we are related... Many people don't know that I am a Jiggetts by blood but was raised by my mother who I have her last name... My prayers are with the entire family; I understand that we have never met but that does NOT keep me from praying... Im writing this note in hopes that one day I will have the oppurtunity to meet the rest of the family before tragedy strikes again... With lots of love... Take care & be blessed..."
Shamier Yates of Dinwiddie, VA

"It feels like it's been forever... I had to move forward because I know that you would have done the same and I would have wanted you to. I do still think about you. I think about how things have could have been different, how I could have talked you out of the marine corps... I think about how crazy we were and how we made plans but never went through with them. It still hurts. But everything happens for a reason I guess and God has a plan for all of us. God's plan was for you to go and for me to stay and I can't lead a bad life because you gave up your life for me. I hope you're proud of the decisions I've made and you're watching over me from heaven. I miss you."

"To my family,
It has taken me some time to express my feelings on this page becuase I just never knew what to say. Words can't express the love I have for Lamont. Lamont was a great Marine, Uncle, brother-in-law and more importantly a freind to me and my children. As long as God sees it fit for me to walk this earth I will always keep Lamont's memory alive and carry a piece of Lamont in my heart."

"Lamont was my son Casey's best friend. He spent a lot of time with the Wilson family and Lamont spent many hours at our house. Lamont was always the one friend Casey had that we trully enjoyed and welcomed at our home. I still think about Lamont alot and wish his family all my condolences. I can only share what must only be a measure of their grief. I know Lamont was driven to be a Marine and Casey seemed to think that his time at the base before he shipped out made him into a man. He seemed more mature, more focused and committed to his service to our country. In remembering Lamont I try not to think that he's left us but about the young man I knew: his love of SpongeBob Squarepants, the paintball fights he and Casey would have in his bedroom, the hours they spent downloading music, how he used to help us clean out our garage and how he would make fun of the way I'd say "poop". He was a funny kid, but most of all he was Casey's best buddy and Casey thought of him as a big brother. I know he misses him and talking about everything. Sleep well, Lamont."

"Lamont was my friend throughout most of my childhood. He was no ordinary friend,he was one that watched my back and protected me around the neighborhood.I was younger and smaller then everyone but he accepted me for who i was and gave me a wonderful friendship. We had good times roaming the neighborhood whether it was playing basketball,swimming or just hanging out. All i know is Lamont was a big brother to me and I love him for that. His family also welcomed me in at any time and was there for me whenever possible. They are good parents and have raised thier kids to be the best they can, and let me tell you they are all well mannered and have a great deal of knowledge. I thank you Lamont and family for giving me great childhood memories. I will be sure to come visit you all more.GOD Bless.I love you Lamont!
