    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...

    I Was There.

    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...

    I Will Always Remember You John

    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...

    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.
