"13 August 2009,

Travis.. Man it seemed like yesterday when we just graduated from BASH and here we are. I was in training when I heard about what happened and I was heart broken.. To feel that a fellow soldier past, not just a soldier, but a good friend. You were a comedian man.. You made us all laugh. You were a good man, and a good soldier. To this day I still cry over what took place every time I drive past that bear outside of boyertown. Seeing that reminds myself what our duties are, to be a soldier during a time of war. You keep my spirits high and to aspire to be a good soldier. Your good friends, Brent, Nate, Audrey, etc. All loved you dearly. Again as it was said above; us soldiers regroup in the end.. So I will see you again as well, my brother. US Army Strong.
