My dearest LCpl Franklin Sweger,
I am so proud of you, what you accomplished in your short lift.
The love you showed to your family and friends,you will never be forgotten. I
miss you so very much, I think about you constantly. Life will never be the
same without you. I know you are in a better place than I am, but it does not
ease the pain caused by your absence. Until we meet again. Love, Mom
Please also remember our HEROES who have
returned from the war with the killer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They are
afraid to seek help because of retribution. The stigma of this deadly disease
must be eliminated before we wipe out another generation. We lost our Iraqi War
Vet, SPC Joshua Omvig of the 339th MP Unit out of Davenport Iowa, 6 weeks ago
because of PTSD. God Rest His Soul...Josh's Aunt Julie
Our tears fall at
your loss, but we thank you for your unselfish bravery and courage to do what
the most of us can not do. Your life was too short, but a life that was not

I want to thank every soldier in the
United States military for what you have done. You are the true light of this
great country. You are the glue that binds us. You are the the ones that stay up
all night looking, praying and wishing for the freedom that we so greatly take
for granted. As a soldier I understand that we have to fight for this
freedem,and as a man I respect everything that you, the active and inactive,
military do. You should be proud of everything that you are doing, because the
men and women that are listed here were. I fought beside alot of them in 2003,
and they where the best. Now I leave you with this. You are the strongest,
fastest, smartest, and more powerfull military in the world. thank you for

serve and protect our country with the greatest thing he possessed, his life.

My church has a mission project, "Quilts of Honor", in which we give
each family a handmade quilt with their loved one's name, rank, unit, and branch
of service on them. There is no charge. It is our way of showing you that we
care and can comfort you in a small way by giving you this quilt to hold on to,
wrap up in, or however you want to use it. It's also our way of serving God and
our country by showing you that people that don't know you still care about the
pain and sorrow your family has to face.
If a family member could contact me
at a convenient time to talk about the quilt, please call or email.

young Marine was lost recently. Cpl. Matthew Conley,we will all miss you. Though
I do not know you I am so very proud of you. It took a lot of courage to join
the Marines and go through 11 weeks of missing your family and friends. But the
day they played the Marine anthem and you received your EGA your parents shed a
small tear of joy. I know I have been there twice. To your parents, though you
have made the ultimate sacrifice, Matt died for all of us and he will be forever
in our hearts and we forever in his debt.

MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYS ARE ALWAYS WITH ALL WHO
SERVE OUR COUNTRY AND THRIER FAMILIES
I am the younger sister of a fallen
sodier. My hero died May 13, 2003 near Al Hillah, Iraq. Though it's still hurts
three years later, it does get a little easier to deal with. To all the families
who have lost a loved one overseas, I send my sincere sympathy. Our men and
women died fighting for the country they loved and the families they wanted to
protect. Be proud, hold your head high, someday we'll see them again.
In memory of Lance Cpl. Nicholas Brian Kleiboeker
I would like to tell all our heroes thank you for everything you are doing day
and night. I never got the chance to fight for our country; we'll never forget
you guys we'll be here waiting until all come home. thank you and god bless you
Anthony T. Murphy
I met Corp (Bernard P. Corpuz) at
AIT in 2005, at Ft. Huachuca, AZ. Within a few weeks, I could tell he was not
the average person; there was a aura about him, a shining light that seemed just
always to be around him. No matter how bad things got, he always saw the bright
side of things. I didn't see everything the way he did, and that's what made me
become his friend. Through school and when we hung out on the weekends he always
had something funny to say, he could make you forget about your problem or just
make you see things differently.
There are some people who, sympathize
with the enemy and say that we should not be over there and instead of embracing
the men and women who sacrifice their lives, marriages, families, and friends,
to defend this great country, they degrade us, taunt us, look down on us, as if
we are the bad guys. As the #1 power in the world it is our duty to help those
who can not help themselves, it is our duty to protect those who can not protect
themselves. I am a American soldier, and as an American soldier, just like Corp,
I will gladly lay my life on the line for my country, my family, and my friends.
I did not nor will I ever forget 9/11 or all my fellow soldiers who gave their
life so the very people who look down on us, for being over there, can have the
freedoms they have today. So I write this to all the families of the soldiers
who have fallen, and to my fellow soldiers, keep your head up. I know the pain
of losing a loved one, whether family or friend, the pain is the same. The
freedom that we enjoy today is all because of the soldiers who have sacrificed
everything for the greater cause, because of soldier like CPL Bernard P.
Ft. Rucker CIF
To the Pernell
My prayers go out to you in your time of bervement. I know that
you will really miss Sgt. Pernell. Just remember how he made everyone laugh.
The soldiers we have lost, fought for what they loved. I have lost many friends
and loved ones, including my fiance'. The pain is as real as it was the day i
lost him 3 years ago. But as time flows, i keep teling myself he died loving
what he did. Always in my heart will be that faithful soldier from Ft Hood, Tx.
Thank you to all the troops who fight for our country everyday, regardless of
where you may be. You wear a uniform and you serve ALL of us who are Americans.
And to the rest of the families who have had to sacrifice what we did.
I want all the families of theses fallen
soliders to know that you are in my prayers and to thank you all and your
sons,fathers,husbands,daughters,wifes mothers for being the true heroe's they
are and fighting for our freedom and for our right to lay our heads down at
night in peace. They are the bravest people out there!!
You will be so sadly
missed.By your Sister, Brother and myself
I love you son
My sincere sympathies go out to the
families of the 48th,and especially the 108th from Douglasville who lost loved
ones in Iraq. May God be with you and may He hold your loved ones in the palm of
His hands until you at last you shall meet again. God Bless America
May God send special angels to comfort you
with the sure knowledge that your loved one is home and in the Lord's beautiful
presence...all is well.

killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq just a few weeks ago. May he rest in
Our small town has just now experienced our
first fallen soldier, and it was a big impact on everyone. I believe everyday we
should say a little prayer for those who are fighting, have fallen, and for all
of the families who have suffered or are suffering.
