  1. R.I.P Sgt Myrie. I know exactly what you endured there. You're in a better place now, out of that dump called Afghanistan. May your memory live on forever.

  2. I served with Sgt Myrie in Iraq in 2005. He was a good Marine, and a good man. I can not explain my gratitude for your sacrifice. May you rest in peace.
