    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.

    Most of you may remember someone that has given their life in service to their country. Each one a tremendous loss to their family and loved ones. I remember a soldier that touched my life. He was my son's best friend, just 19 the week before he died. He spent many hours a week...

    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...

    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...

    Aliens are NOT fallen angels. It's due to the lunacy of man's religion we can't have aliens "land on the White House lawn". The planet would be in chaos.
