  1. I pray for all the soldier's. They do an amazing, unselfish, meaningful job everyday to insure our freedom. Freedom most take for granted. I will always be thaankful for all they give. God Bless and be safe..

  2. This is my brother and I am so proud of him! I miss him so much! My heart goes out to him and every single one of our troops everywhere! Thank you for what you do and I pray that you all return home to your families safely!

  3. Melissa, I know his wife, and I lost my brother in Iraq. My heart goes out to you. I'll be praying for you and your family. It's a difficult, but not at all an impossible time.

  4. My heart is absolutely wrenched for his wife right now. My deepest prayers go out to this soldier's family. Your sacrifice will be remembered.

  5. My deepest sympathy to the family. My most sincere admiration for all they go off to war, not knowing if they will return to the families they love. It breaks my heart to think that his wife and children are without him. I will pray for them. With love and respect...Angela Carter
