Your fellow SSG
2-1B, 1/506th, 4th BCT, 101st ABN
thank you for your service and dedication to our country. May God comfort your family in His Arms of Love
May God Bless the heroes that keep our nation free. May your family's grief be brief, and the cherished memories of this fine young soldier be forever lasting. A life well-lived.
May God bless and keep this wonderful young man. Without these heroes, our nation would not be free; and freedom is never free, sacrifices made by these soldiers cannot be put into words to say thank you enough. God bless you and yours.
Another light has faded from the earth and now aglow in Heaven awaiting our arrival...so proud to have served with you my brother in arms...we will miss you and never forget you Sonny...we march forward in this struggle never forgetting you.
May the peace of God that excels all thought comfort the family during this time of sorrow.
I know there are no words to say at this time, except how sorry that I am. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. Sonny will never be forgotten.
For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I'm home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I'm only a civilian
And I don't even know if it's allowed
But I salute you; allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you.
For those missing in action;
for those who didn't make it home.
I know you're in God's presence you are not alone.
For every neatly folded flag;
for every shattered family
I will do the only thing I know to dignify your memory.
I salute you, allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
my humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you .
I Salute You.

As you embark on this journey of sadness it is my prayer that God will speed relief from your pain. As a Viet Nam era Veteran, it breaks my heart every time a Warrior pays this tremendous price. I know words cannot provide a respite but I wanted you, the Zimmerman family, to know that my heart breaks with yours. I know it's sometimes hard to hear but some of us really DO CARE. During this very trying time I offer my own heart and shoulders to lift some of the pain from yours.
Thank you for your SERVICE to our country, Staff Sgt. Zimmerman! Rest easy in God's Presence. My condolences to your family and friends.
Im so sorry for your loss...did not know your family but this young man is obviously a hero and wonderful person. J.T.G

Extremely sorry for the loss of your son who was doing what we all had to do to protect peace and liberty (I was in the Viet Nam war). Soon, though, the God who gives peace will bring peace to the earth when he causes all wars to cease - forever! Psalms 46:9

Thank you Sgt. Zimmerman for your sacrifice for freedom. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family and friends. My husband went to Ft Campbell when he joined the Army. Do me a favor when you meet all your brothers and sisters who Gave All seek out my husband David and let him know his son and I love him and miss him. I'm still trying to get answers about why his remains aren't home. It has been 42 years and counting.

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, SSG Sonny C. Zimmerman, U.S. Army. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Sonny. And to Sonny it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the supreme sacrifice he made for his country while opposing enemy forces in Afghanistan. Sonny you gave the last full measure of devotion for what you believed in and fought for. No greater love and patriotism are shown than a man lays down his life in service to his country. Sonny, 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 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Dave's family and loved ones.
