To the family and friends of Spc. Leeroy A. Camacho:
It has truly been my honor to sign Leeroy's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, this may be the last message I'm able to write. Please forgive me and know that Leeroy will always be remembered in my home.
With love and respect ~ Peggy

It's been five (5) long years my brother since you've been gone. Up til this moment in my life, I still have doubts in my mind that your gone. But the thing is, I really do missed the boys and that I wish Velma would send me a message and say the kids are all doing find. It was never ever the same since you left, but always hoping and praying that You'll just pop up and see you for the last time. You will always be in my heart and prayers til the day I die. YOU ARE NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN!

To the family and friends of Spc. Leeroy A. Camacho:
We are the parents of SSG. Alan Shaw that was KIA the same time as Spc. Camacho. We met his wife at the memorial in Ft. HOOd, March 15, 2007. She told us about meeting our son at the picnic they had before their deployment. His three little boys were about the same age differnces as our three middle boys were. Alan was 20 months older than his brother , Darren and Darren was 20 months older than their brother, Randy. I know you have your hands full, but what a blessing they are for you.
We just recently found out about legacy and wanted to let you know we think of you. We know your world changed the same time as ours did.
We hope you have the support and help you need. Our faith in God has helped us through the dark times, we keep thanking him for the 31 years we had him on earth and we know we will see him again.
Please let us know how you are doing.

There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.

My deepest condolensces to your family, Camacho. I went through basic with you and thought of you as the Saipan brother I never had. You encouraged us when we were ready to give up and made us laugh when we were down. I know you loved your family very much because you were always talking about them. You were definitely one-of-a-kind: a character, a motivator, and a brother in arms. Rest easy my friend.

To the Family and Friends of Spc. Leeroy Camacho,
I knew Camacho in basic training we were in the same platoon F258. We deployed twice together. He was a great man and a even greater friend. I'll never forget him. My prayers go out to you. I will miss him and will pray for his family. Spc. Tyler A. Johnson

We are so sorry for your loss. Spec. Camacho stands as a true American hero. It is very hard to remember that people are only lent to us for a while. When the Lord calls they must go. We too have lost a soldier. Spec. Nicholas Brown was KIA on January 22, 2007 in Mosul, Iraq. He was in 2/7 Cav and loved being a soldier. Please accept our prayers and sympathies during this hard time. Thank you,

Written to Honor the Service of Our Fallen Soldiers

Soldiers write history…they pay the price
Many miles distant, you live the life
Entered the Battle of our own free will
Out of Duty for Country, and we’d do it still

We hope and pray that all will find peace
In God, in the flag, in memories of valor
Gone now, our pride and courage you see
“An Army of One” our motto forever

Willing to risk all for love of our Brothers
We’re still Your Soldiers…and we showed the way
Our Lives too short, now pray for the others
Lived free died Heroes in lands far away

Deep within souls all cherished our Service
We’ll always have what some never know
Courage and Honor, our names forever
Lived life with purpose…just our time to go

We march in the Heavens with Honor and Glory
Missions accomplished we fought the Good Fight
Many years from now…we’ll tell the full story
Until that Day we will live in the Light

Our lives we laid down in a land far away
Still watching o’er you this night and by day
No need to talk…just know we are with you
There in your hearts and we hear what you pray

Yes we are your soldiers
Our lives we laid down
Still We guard o’er you
Still Duty bound

Entered the Battle of our own free will
Out of Duty for Country, and we’d do it still
We’ll always have what some never know
Lived life with purpose…it was our time to go
March 03, 2007
Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss, prayers that the Lord provide you comfort and peace, and our gratitude for the work, and sacrifice, of your Soldier, Leeroy, a true American hero. God Bless.

Our loving thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Lee Roy Camacho. May he continue to watch over his beautiful wife and three sons. Some of us never knew you, but you are family and we pray for you now that you are at peace in heaven. Thank you for serving our country. Your ultimate sacrifice will not go unnoticed. You make us proud to be from the CNMI and as a fellow American, we thank you.
February 20, 2007
I was not priviliged to knowing your son, I only know he is heroe. My son Scott Siggins served with LeeRoy and was very proud to have him by his side. Having lost my oldest son last summer, I can relate to your pain. May all the good times and memories stay alive for years to come. God Bless you. Pls feel free to contact me at anytime. Sincerly,

To Leeroy's family and friends.
I didn't know him but I did know his friend Spc. Ryan Berg who was also killed in Iraq. I just wanted to say that I am very sorry for your loss. He is truly a hero and I am greatful to people like him and Ryan who risk their lives to protect us. It takes a diffrent kind of person to do something like that. I hope you take comfort in knowing he is in good hands because he is being greeted by my friend and Leeroy's fellow soldier, Ryan.

Heaven's Call

Heaven called and you were taken
So young to go, to young to know

The call of heaven did not wait
Your time here a short stay
You were called away
To be part of God’s everlasting garden

Borrowed seed from the Master
A small little bud that graced us with your beauty
Now returned upon heaven’s call

A finely chosen rose
Taken before it bloomed
Before your beauty had time to unfold

He is the Gardner and you his prize winning bud
Perhaps He seen a storm that you could not with stand
So he picked you before the wind would fall

The memories forever etched in our hearts
Our little bud now blooms
With the angels up on high

Your family has been in my prayes and rest Spc. Camacho your mission is done.

Soft and Slowly,

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

I am so deeply sorry to hear about Lee's death. It is devastating for all of us with family in Iraq - it feels so personal when we lose someone because we're all a big family. Lee is in my prayers as is your family. God bless you.

To the Family and Friends of Spc. Leeroy Camacho,

There are no words that can be spoken for the loss of your precious soldier, Lee. We are truly sorry for your loss and for Lee’s great and ultimate sacrifice.

While we did not know your loved one, Lee, on a personal level, we do know him. He was proud to serve his flag and country. He stood tall during our National Anthem. He wore his uniform with honor. He wanted his family and his "American family" to sleep safe and in peace.

He wanted his family to have the freedoms that the people of lands far away sometimes do not even dare to dream of. He looked into the eyes of the people in those places where there is no freedom and he cried for their pain. He tried to make a small part of the life around him a little better if only to bring a smile or wipe a tear.

We know your loved one. We know his face at the airport leaving his loved ones. We know his face on the newscasts, sometimes scared but still proud of his work. We know his face. We know his pride. We know his love. We know him and we love him and all that he believed in and all that he risked.

My family and I know your loved one, Lee. We know the reality of and appreciate the ultimate sacrifice.

Stand proud, stand strong. I am so sorry for your loss.

My Deepest and Most Heartfelt Sympathy goes out to the family of Spc. Leeroy A. Camacho, with a Multitude of Thanks for this Brave Young Soldier's Courage, Dedication and Service to our Country and for Freedom.

The price Leeroy and his family have paid, Will Never Be Forgotten.
May he Rest Safely, in God's Care and may God's Loving Peace and Comfort be with the Camacho family.
I am the Sister of such a young hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago

and carried our sorrows."

May you find comfort and strength, in the beautiful memories of times spent with Leeroy.
Quietly and gently, may healing come, with each new day.
You are in my thoughts and my prayers.
February 12, 2007
I know this is about you and Alan and Leeroy. I still cannot believe it. Less than a month ago, I was on this site, writing to Ryan and his family and now it's you. Never in a million years did I think that anything would happen to you. You and BJ and Jimmy and Scott made it back from Iraq before. I just figured you'd do it again. But we should have known better. You were always out front.. always helping everyone else and thinking of your buddies before yourself. And now you have paid the ultimate price so that your buddies would live. 3 of you were killed, but 6 survived. I just hate that it was you. BJ and Mike are doing. That's about all that can be said. You'll hear BJ speaking at your memorial. Watch over BJ.. He's taking this hard. We love you Eric and you'll always be in out hearts.
