Hi Brett. As far as I'm concerned, you're still with us, in some way or form. Everyone from our PLOW project at Buffalo State will really miss your unique personality. We have all learned a lot from your persona. You will always be with us for our guy's night at Duff's (we'll still ask for a table of 5, and not a "boof"). So much for those Cinco de Mayo door prize tickets, haha. We have all learned a lot from the year or so of knowing you. We'll see you on the other side. This We'll Defend, Brother.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to our Brother-in-Arms, SPC Brett E. Gornewicz, U.S. Army. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Brett. And to Brett it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while opposing enemy forces in Afghanistan. Brett you gave the last full measure of devotion for what you believed in and fought for. No greater love and patriotism are shown than when a man lays down his life in service to his country. Brett, you are a brave American Warrior, a true Patriot and a national Hero. With your passing, our Country has lost a National Treasure. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Brett's family and loved ones.

Stephen J. Lavery, Commander, American Legion Post 14
