Ed, I didn't know you very well. The only time we met is when Sabrah and I were stationed at West Point and we made trip up to see Samantha. I just wanted to say that even though we met very briefly, I considered you a brother. You were a Marine and I was a Soldier, but we were both bound by service, honor, and country. We shared some experiences in the same places and we both carried some of that back with us. Not too many people understand that not all war wounds are physical and not all can be seen. You understood this very well and so did I. From one combat vet to another, I just wanted to say it was a honor to able to serve my country along side you and that your sacrifices will never be forgotten.
