I Want to Memorialize A Fallen Soldier

For those with a friend or family member who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country 138 People

    To My Friend Gene

    Who went thru WWII and the Korean War, coming home a "whole" person but got MRSA at the Veterans Hospital November 2005.  By September 2006 he was gone.  It's pretty ironic that he got thru both conflicts but died from a resistant bacteria he got at home...

    SPC Jeffrey L. White Jr.

    --Is it bad that i only knew him for a couple of a seconds, but i feel like he is a part of me? In those few seconds, I could tell he was animated, polite, friendly and a positive person. He had been bragging about the big hole that he hit while driving. We all laughed but did...

    You Will Not Be Forgotten

    This is for SSG Steve Reynolds who was a great leader and served in Iraq for two years.  He was a great friend and it hurt to speak at his memorial service a little over a year ago.  But I know he is in a better place and gave the ultimate sacrifice.
