"Years later and I find your name still in my mind. I never got a chance to meet you Nick; I served alongside you and knew you only by proxy. I was a security team leader for 8th ESB and did route clearance missions with you but while I was standing guard in a humvee hundreds of meters from the real bombs, you hovered over them. Like an angel I know you still hover over the many EOD tech's still in the desert. We are all... still in the desert. God bless you and hold you brother."
