Rest in peace Jonathan.

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, SGT Jonathan A. Gollnitz, U.S. Army. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Jonathan. And to Jonathan 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. Jonathan 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. Jonathan, 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 Jonathan's family and loved ones.

Stephen J. Lavery, Commander, American Legion Post 14

Nate was like my little brother. We served together on the USS John C Stennis, I watched him grow into an amazing man. I was there standing by his side at his wedding and also around to hang out with Lukas after he was born. We spent countless nights sitting around a fire telling stories and camping up in the Olympic mountains. Nate, I will miss you more than words can ever say. I love you with all of my heart and I look forward to seeing you again one day.
To his family, I am sorry. Words will never describe what I feel for you right now. He was a great man. He died doing what he loved and defending all of us back home. He knew we were all proud of him and that we all loved him very much.
My thoughts are with you right now.
