  1. Brother... I still remember you as a young PFC with a smile always on your face. You were a M240B gunner when we deployed together for OIF 2. You were always very motivated and ready to do anything asked of you to complete a mission. Everyone always knew you were going to do great things for the military and your country. There really are no words to describe how it feels to lose not only a great friend, but a brother in arms. You will be missed and your sacrifice will never be forgotten. My most sincere condolences go out to "Apo's" family including little Martin Apolinar, and the men that have had the honor to serve next to a great man and true warrior. I will see you on the other side brother...
