Words cannot bring back the lives of all the fallen. My heart swells with sadness for the families, the troops, the friends whenever I read the numerous tributes.

Our daughter, she is enlisting, she is so gung-ho and wants to make a difference. I have never seen someone more determined, more patriotic than her. I'm proud of her, she loves her country. She loves her freedoms. She is a mere 17 right now but much braver than myself.

I can only imagine that all these young soldiers felt the same, had that same fire in their hearts. God Bless them all!

Thank you for your tributes.

Brennan I will always remember your smile and your laughter! You were more than a friend to me growing up you were like a brother! I love you and am so blessed to have known you through Highschool and then off to college. My heart goes out to your wife and son. I found out a few months after your funeral and I couldn't stop crying. I spent many hours telling my husband stories about you! It brings me much peace knowing you are watching over all of us...we are in good hands indeed.
