Today I cried a tear,
for a man I didn't know.
He bravely served his country
In a place I'd never go...
He took a stand for liberty
Fighting for those who are oppressed
He wasn't looking for medals
Nor someone to impress.
But he gave the ultimate,
The all of all time alls...
This soldier I never knew
Answered the final call.
Home he will come now
After giving his very best.
And oh! the sadness over whelms me
As they lay this man to rest.
And I know that sitting somewhere
Is a mother engulfed in pain
But cry as she might while begging God
She'll never see her son again.
So today I cried a tear
for a man I did not know.
A man who bravely served his country
In a place I'll never go.

Written in the memory SSG Nick Fredsti KIA this date.

Dear Sgt. Fredsti,

Although I never met you in person, I know you are a fine young man. I work with your sister at Grossmont College. Words cannot express the sorrow of losing someone so young. As a fellow soldier, I wish to thank you for your service and your ultimate sacrifice. God bless you and those who love you.

My heart hurts for the family of this brave young man that died in honor but was way too young. What an amazing and dedicated soldier and man. I lost my daughter in a fatal car crash on June 11, 2012, she was only 25 years and was 5 days from walking with her graduating class at UCSD with honors. Instead of seeing her walk that day we buried her. I see that Sgt. Nicholas died just days after my daughter. What a horrific loss of our children that week of June.

“The meaning of a true solider”
about Nick Fredsti
By Nicole Farrar

A dedicated soldier was one way to describe Nick,
he was proud who he was and that was relevant,
We talk about the weather Nick talked about his fights,
He talked about his close calls and how he saved lives,
He stood proud to protect people like you and me,
To be what this country is and that is to be free,

He never took out time for himself and hardly ever went home,
In most of his spare time he would just sit home alone,
He never complained about not having a normal nine to five hour day,
Nick wouldn't forget about his job even after a long hard day,
to be a solider like Nick you just have to be born this way,

Nick was a solider most young boys only dream to be,
He was also a brother, son and friend only few people ever really ever got to know,
A piece of him will always be here at his temporary home,
With this said please Nick rest in peace,
your memories will live on but now your spirit can be free.

I hold back my tears, so they will never extinguish your flame. BOHICAS for life.... SFC Damian "CROW" Cromartie, out.

I have known Fredsti from the beginning of his Army career. We were "joes" together in the beginning and he was one of my squad leaders and I his platoon sergeant on his last deployment to Iraq. He pretended to be a scenic, but I always knew cared a lot for his men and unit. I know he and SSG Nixon (also a "joe" with us) are up there in warrior heaven cutting up and making fun of each other. Nick, I love you and I will ALWAYS miss you brother. Say hello to your grandmother for me...SFC Damian "CROW" Cromartie
