In Memory of PFC Charles S. Cooper JR.
Killed in Iraq on April 29th 2005. It seems like such a waste of a 19 year old
boys life, but thank you Charles for having the courage to go and fight for my
freedom. I remember when you were a little boy, running around the neighborhood,
shoveling my front sidewalk at 6 am, and just being a great kid. Your life was
cut too short, but your memory will live long.

Our fallen heroes have given the most
sacred gift of all for their country and that is their precious lives. They each
and every one loved their country and their fellow men young and old and
believed in what they were doing and most of all believed in their country. I
give them all praise and know that God Almighty is watching over those still
serving their country. For those He has called home to be with Him they are now
Guardian Angels of all still serving in the military service everywhere. May God
put a protection of safety over everyone and May God Bless each and everyone
everywhere, those still serving and those God has already called home to be with
Him. Love, Norma Jean
My boyfriend is in basic training and Ii dont know how you and
your families go through this difficult time. I give all my support to you and
want you all to know that I am truly sorry for the losses that you have already
had. I love you and may God be with you.
To those families who have lost a soldier
my thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I can relate to your pain because I
too have lost a soldier. Days, months, years will go by but there heroism and
spirit will not be forgotten for they are true heroes, that soar through the
clouds with pride and honor. May the Lord bless all of you and bring you
tranquility and peace. May he mend your broken heart.
In Loving Memory of Sgt. Craig L.
Momma, Tommie, Cade, and I miss you greatly. We know you are in
heaven with Daddy and Jesus. We carry the thought that you are only a half a
step behind us. You will be missed forever and ever.

Our soldiers make us all proud. The one's
whose families have lost should always remember that the United States of
America prays for them every day. To the families of our soldiers still fighting
we should stand tall and when they come home welcome them and treat them with
the respect that they will always give us. They are our protectors.
All of You
To all of the heros across seas fighting for our Freedom and way of life.

souls for who knew your lifes journey would end you here.....but you will always
be remembered and honored for you are all our HERO's. Bless you for your bravery
of being an American soidier and may your wings spread wide up in heaven and

In memory of the loss of:
Rafael "TJ" Carrillo
1-64 AR 3rd ID
Fort Stewart, GA/Bagdad,
As I look over websites and lists of our fallen heros, I just keep
thinking that these lists are far too long. Lists of young men and women who
are giving the altimate sacrifice for the freedoms we all hold so dear. TJ was
a good friend of my brother who aslo was on the vehicle when enemy fire took a
great man from his family and friends and injured two others. My brother was
one of the injured and TJ was taken from us. Although I felt relief to find out
our soldier was going to be okay, I couldn't help but feel a great sorrow for
the family of TJ and all of his brothers in Iraq. TJ was fun and outgoing
individual who could always make people laugh. Although I only saw him a few
times while visiting my brother at Ft. Stewart, I know he is a great loss to
many. He and my brother were pretty good friends and spent a lot of time
together. I would talk to my brother online and see TJ in the back ground on
the web cam. My thoughts and prayers go out to TJ's family. I'm t
sorry for your great loss. TJ is a true hero and his sacrifice is the greatest
any man can give. I know that he is smiling down on us from heaven and watching
over his fellow brothers and for that I am thankful. To TJ's family: God be
with you in your time of sorrow and always. To our brave young heros: God Bless
You! May you have a safe tour and return to your families soon. To my Hero PFC
Daniel Newberry: I miss you more than I have ever missed anyone. My brother, my
best friend. I pray every night and count the days until your return. I Love
May GOD continue to bless each and every
family that has lost a husband, child, brother, sister, are any member of our
nation children we love you!!!!
My thoughts and prayers are with all whom
have lost a loved one in service of their country.
God Bless all.
We lost a hero on July 10, 2005. His name
was Joseph P. Goodrich, from Pittsburgh, PA. He was my best friends husband,
and I have many memories to carry me through. He was such a great person, my
husband and I choose him to be our daughters godfather. We miss him so much,
and will always remember him. He believed in what he was doing and would not
leave his men behind. It was a great honor to be his friend.
i would like to say that i am
extreamly greatful for those who are serving us and have given there lifes for
us. if i could serve i would but i am not able to due to animeia. i am extreamly
proud of those that i know who are in iraq fight now thank you all! i love
I know many guys that have served in
Iraq. One of the saddest moments of my life is when I greeted my friends that
came back, just to learn that they had lost four friends in Iraq. So to those
four and to all of the ones killed, know that you are heros in all ways. You
have changed the lifes of so many and we are grateful for you. Prayers go out
to all of those friends, family members and comrades who have been left standing
without the ones standing next to them. God Bless you all.
We love all our soldiers---Please put a
stop too this war & all wars.
May God Bless all soldiers and their
families. You are all in my prayers everyday. Thank you for what you do. May
God Bless the little children whom have lost parents way to soon.
