To the family of Spc. Carlos E. Wilcox:
As you may know, the Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation has honored your loved one at its Memorial Day Sunday worship service (each year in May) … since the time of your fallen hero's ultimate sacrifice. We will continue to pay tribute to our nation's veterans … lest we ever forget!

Now we would like to honor you … as the next-of-kin … who have also paid a great price on the altar of liberty. On Sunday 29 September at 11:00 a.m. we will host a Gold Star Family Sunday.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship … as we pay tribute to your sacrifice. Our pastor, U.S. Army Chaplain (Colonel-Retired) Kenneth L. Beale, Jr., will preach a message entitled, “By Dying, We Live.” The special music will be the husband/wife vocal/piano — Wickman Duo. Following the worship experience, your family is invited to attend a social time in our Fellowship Hall … with some light refreshments.

As this historic chapel has limited seating, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (651/286-7296) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans' name and the number of persons attending. For more information about the Foundation or driving directions to the historic chapel at Fort Snelling, visit our website at: www.fortsnellingmcf.org

If you are not able to attend, we pray that you would find comfort in knowing that our prayers are with you and all of the fallen heroes.

Hello,
We would like to express our deepest condolences and to also let the Wilcox Family know that we recently sent Care Packages to American troops in the war zones. Each box carried a dedication sheet that includes the name, service information and a photo of your loved one. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.
Sincerely,

The Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel Foundation will be honoring your loved one at the non-denominational Christian Memorial Day Remembrance worship service at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, 26 May 2013. We will remember the casualties of the Global War on Terrorism from Minnesota … and the bordering states of Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Outside of the historic Fort Snelling Veterans Memorial Chapel will be a “Memorial Garden” filled with some 300 white crosses bearing the names of the war dead … including your loved one.

The Memorial Garden will be encircled with larger white crosses representing all of the wars of our nation's history and give honor to all who have served in the United States Armed Forces and made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy today. Wreaths will be placed at the foot of each 8-foot cross bearing the number of U.S. Service Members killed in each of America's conflicts.

I would like to extend to your family an invitation to honor us with your presence at worship as we pay tribute to the sacrifice made by your service member and family. Our pastor, Kenneth L. Beale, Jr., will preach a message entitled, “Freedom:Free, but Costly.” At the conclusion of the worship hour, all of the congregation will be invited to silently pay their respects at the garden and there place poppies at each of the crosses. A Memorial Rifle Squad of the Fort Snelling National Cemetery will fire vollies as the US flag is lowered to half-staff and Taps is played. Following your visit to the Memorial Garden, your family is invited to attend an informal reception (weather permitting) outside of the Chapel. The Memorial Garden will remain until 5:00 p.m. on Monday, 27 May (Memorial Day).

As this Christian worship service has traditionally been well attended, we would be happy to reserve seating for you and yours. To do so, kindly call (651/286-7296) and leave a voice message indicating your veterans' name and the number of persons attending. For more information about the Foundation or driving directions to the historic chapel at Fort Snelling, visit our website at: www.fortsnellingmcf.org Special rates for nearby hotels will be available.

Also, beginning at dusk (8:30 p.m.) on Saturday 25 May through dawn (6:30 a.m.) on Sunday, 26 May, a “Prayer Vigil for Peace” will be held in the sanctuary of the Chapel. You are invited to stop by, light a candle and place it at the foot of your loved one's cross in the Memorial Garden … and then enter the Chapel for prayer.

If you are not able to attend, we pray that you would find comfort in knowing that our prayers are with you and all of the fallen heroes.

Mann, Its very hard to stomach the facts that remain and accept what is true, and that is Spc. Wilcox is gone from us all in person and will be missed by the same. This is not your typical sugar coated statements made at the passing of a fallen loved one. Spc Wilcox was deeply involved with and loved what he did, not to mention very good at what he did. I only knew this man for one month and I have to say "One spectacular person!" he was. Only memories of his belongings to become a physician remain. If you knew him then you know what im talking about. This man was the only one in class with books of massive depth and caliber when not even necessary, just showing his yearning to be the best and better at what he did. In closing I say, "May God grant us all with peace and serenity, reminding us that vengence is the Lords seeing that when Carlos was taken from us all, we lost the best there was to offer."

well man i dont know how to honor you other than to keep going... you will never be forgotten man, you were a true friend. all the times at ft. sam and around san antonio, those were the days man.
i miss you bro, and the good times we had will never be forgotten.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen

Dear Wilcox Family:

How saddened we were when we learned of Carlos' death. He was a very good friend of our daughter and always brought laughter into our home. In the short time that God allowed us to share Carlos, we learned from him what life truly had to offer because he lived it to the fullest. We will always regard him as our hero, always remember his courage and kindness, but most of all, we will think of him as the outstanding and wonderful person he was. How heaven must shine with the brightness of his smile!

Charlene,

We were so sad to hear of your loss. We will always remember the sacrifice that Carlos has made for our country. It was an awesome time we had attending church with you when all the kids were young. We will always remember how concerned Carlos was with how we combed our son Michael's hair! We even went out and bought the specific kind of brush he suggested!

May the Lord be close to you and your family at this most difficult time. Let Him hold you in his loving arms.

Dear Wilcox Family,

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I met Carlos back in high school and would occassionally run into him over the past several years. Although I did not know him very well, his smile and kind nature is one that I will never forget. I believe he left a lasting impression on everyone that he has ever met, which is quite something! You are truly a hero Carlos! My deepest sympathies to the Wilcox family and all those who know him or had a chance to meet him.

May you rest in Peace Carlos.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this hour of great sorrow. Your son died a hero. All who serve in the military are heroes along with their families. It is very hard for parents to let go of your sons or daughters who want to serve in the arm forces. I am a military mom. You and your family are not alone, you are never alone, just remember that. God bless you and your family.

To the Wilcox Family,
Please accept my wife's and mine's heartfelt sympathy. My son Rob who was with the 34th MP's 1st Platoon before the deployment always had a funny story to tell about Carlos. He seemed to be a great friend to him. It hurt my heart when I heard. I will always remember my son's smile when he talked about him.
July 23, 2009
Thank you, Carlos, for what you have done for our country. You sacrificed the ultimate and we will forever be grateful! I knew you when we were kids and see that you grew up to be quite a man! I'm sure your mama is proud! Rest in Peace, soldier~

Carlos changed my life when he entered into it 12 years ago. He was such a wonderful person, with such great ambition and passion. I admired him as a friend, as a person, as a classmate and as a soldier. His personality, sense of Humor, knowledge, smile and laugh will always stand out in my memory. No matter where our lives took us and no matter how far away Carlos was, he always tracked me down just to say hi, even from Spain at 3 am. I always knew that voice on the other end of the phone. He talked so passionately about serving our country and making a difference in this world. His light was put out too soon, but I take comfort in knowing that God has a plan for us all and also in knowing Carlos was doing what he wanted to be doing. My thoughts and prayers are with Carlos, especially with his family and with so many of the other people whose lives he touched. To know Carlos was an amazing priviledge. He will be forever missed.

My deepest sympathies to the Wilcox family.

Even though we did not stay in contact over these past couple of years, I feel extremely blessed to have met him! He crossed my mind often. There are no words to express how sorry I am for you loss. As a mother of a young boy, I can not even imagine! I can only hope I raise my son to be as caring, smart, and compassionate. He was an amazing person and touched so many lives.

I will always remember the happiness that Carlos carried. His smile was contagious! Although younger in school it was not hard to observe that he was the kind of guy that made you laugh and was genuine in all he did. He didn't judge and had friends from all walks of life. He was a good person. a Ms. Wilcox, you should be very proud. You did an amazing job with him. To Charles, I know it was a long time ago but I remember hanging out and hearing stories about how Carlos admired you. He had a lot of love for his family, that was clear.

My thoughts and prayers to the Wilcox family. I am a proud parent of a solider whom Wilcox touched dearly in the few months she was with the Red Bulls. He welcomed her into the unit and showed true compassion for her when she became pregnant and was no longer available to deploy with them. May knowing how he touched others in what he did give you comfort in time.

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 Carlos E. Wilcox. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Carlos. And to Carlos it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while deployed with the U.S. Army in Iraq. No greater love is shown than a man lay down his life for another. Carlos, 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 1,341 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Carlos’ family and loved ones.
