I'm from Cody and Kevin and I were at the same weight in wrestling throughout high school. I think we went head to head in every tournament in every little town for 4 straight years. We even got kicked out of the bowling alley in Riverton one year! We even had classes together at NWCC. I didn't keep up with him after NWCC, but I'm proud (and glad) to know he not only served, but made a career out of it. I'm an Air Force Vet I understand the personal sacrifice many service members endure while serving. I'm proud to have known him and wish to thank him and his family for all he did and all they do. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and I know God will bring hope and peace.

I knew Kevin from our days of running around Riverton. He was a few years younger than me, but he always seemed to fit in with our crowd. I was deeply saddened to hear of his death and I know there is a huge void that will never be filled, both for his family and his military brothers. God speed Kevin, I'm sure we will meet again. God Bless Pam and the children, and God Bless our fine men and women in uniform!

So sorry for your loss. Kevin was a classmate of mine from 6th grade through high school. I will always remember his wonderful smile. To his loved ones you are in my prayers for comfort. I thank Kevin as well as his family for his service and dedication to our country and freedom.

We had the honor & privilege to be associated with Kevin during his wrestling years in Riverton and Northwest College. Kevin was not only a good wrestler, but more importantly, he was a GOOD MAN. We are humbled that he gave his life while defending our freedom.
With sympathy & gratitude,

Pam I sent a message about Kevin wrestling for me and didn't identify myself. I am Floyd Young and coached Kevin at Northwest College. You kept Kevin focused and were such a big part of his life. As you know, he was the best. I know you and your children will miss him so much. I appreciate the part he played in my life. My memories of Kevin are wonderful and vivid. We traveled a lot of miles on bus trips. He managed to keep us entertained.

Kevin was the embodiment of what the Army strives to create in it's NCOs. He was so much more than that even, an amazing friend, a fabulous leader and one hell of a dancer!

What does one say about a man that embodied everything a Non Commission Officer should be. I suppose the first thing that comes to mind is the NCO Corps has sustained a loss of one of the most professional Soldiers I've ever had the privlage of serving with. I had the honor of standing before CSM Griffin during my promotion board for SSG while he led 2-1 CAV at JBLM and prior to that received mentoring from him on multiple occasions. One of the things he imparted to me that seems to be most prominent in my mind is his instruction on legacy. He pulled me to the side one day and said SSG Sinkhorn you have a responsiblility to your Soldiers to leave a legacy of outstanding leadership. You must at all cost demonstrate to them professionalism, courage, sense of duty and commitment to the mission and one another. So I say to all who had the privilage of knowing this great Leader, he lived these values, these truths and committed them to us to be passed on. As God is my wittness CSM Griffin you will live on. To his family and particularly his wife, dear lady I was there when we said our goodbys at the 2-1 CAV dinner. I have never wittnessed two people more devoted to one one another. He spoke that night of how he fought for your hand in marriage and he absolutely beamed with pride as you stood by his side. You my lady set the example of support and devotion to her husband/Soldier. You a rock and will always be in my familiy's thoughts and prayers. Our hearts are yours.

May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding fall upon you and your family.

God Bless CSM Griffin and his family. CSM Griffin was a mentor and friend. He was a great leader, but more importantly he was a great man. My time with him at Fort Lewis in 2-1 CAV was the highlight of my professional career. I learned more from CSM Griffin in those two years than any other individual in the Army. I will miss him and think of him often. LTC Jackson "Jeb" Seims.
