It is a been a few years and I still remember the day your arrived at Eggers. I with my battle buddy were in line at the outdoor DFAC. You were with the officer you were replacing in front of us. I had just come back from a mission and had a letter from my wife with photos of my boys. You asked me to see my photos and made a comment that one day you hoped to have children of your own. It was a hard day when you and Shawn Pine passed. I think about the team frequently. You both are missed. All the best to your family.

Dear Roz,

Its been three years today since you were taken out of our lives all too soon. I am sitting here in Afghanistan and can't help but think about how much of an impact you had on me and the Air Force as a whole. You still live on in my mind, and in my daily actions as an AF NCO. Every day, I wear a rememberance bracelet on my wrist, not so I dont forget you (because that wont happen) but ...rather to remind myself to live up to your influence and the faith that you had in my potential. You are missed dearly my friend.



RIP 1LT Roslyn L. Schulte, KIA 20 May 09

As the day approaches I try to never forget you. I remember that day like it was yesterday. You ARE what we all strive to be.

Dear Schulte Family,
Roz's name was read today at Congregation Adat Reyim in Springfield, VA, as the Rabbi remembered the yahrzeits of servicemembers who gave their lives for their country. I served with your daughter in Kabul and I think of her often. She was an amazing person and is of blessed memory to so many of us.
February 13, 2012
To Roslyn's family,
While reading my JNF magazing I came upon the piece done on 1Lt Schulte, and was touched deeply. The tragedy of her death is sobering. We are an Air Force family. My husband is a retired Master Sergeant, I spent 30 years in the Active Duty and Reserves, and our daughter, Beth, was in for ten years and deployed three times. We all feel this pain in a very real way. But we also know how fortunate we are to be home together when so many others cannot. Never do we forget this. And now, we will never forget you and your amazing daughter.
G-d Bless you always.

To the family and loved ones of this beautiful soldier who brought smiles where ever she went. I pray that you are given the strength to carry on knowing she loved doing what she did. She followed her dreams and in doing so she brought joy to those lucky enough to know her.
She will be remembered forever by those who served with her. She is forever in our hearts.
And its this type of sacrifice that makes our land what it is. All glory and praise belongs to our service members and their loved ones.

I think of you and your beautiful Roslyn often, as I walk by her portrait at my place of work. I know that you miss her now, two years later, just as much as you ever did. It is my prayer that God pours put upon you the peace and comfort that only He can give, and that you are able to celebrate the gift of such a wonderful daughter and her life so well lived.

L.T. I was telling an AF Officer we served with about that day and how I drove down that very road 12 hours before you did. I knew some of your friends. And although I never knew you, I think about that day every day. You and Master Sergeant C are on my mind every day.

Taking time out of my busy day to remember a fallen hero. You will never be forgotten. RIP young warrior.
June 18, 2010
I never met Roz, but I knew some of her friends she went to pre-deployment training with. I drove over that spot in the road 20-30 times (and the bomb was there)....the last time twelve hours before she did and the IED never got me. 12 hours later they got Roz. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about her. The morning it happened I was shattered...I had been on that spot the night before! I carry her in my heart forever.

Remembering 1ST LT. Roslyn Schulte and the mission that Volunteer Medics World did last year in Afghanistan to honor her. I will make my way to pay her respect once back in the USA.

Schulte Family - I hope your memories of Roz have been for a blessing today. We mourn Roz's passing just as much today as we did a year ago when the news came back to Camp Eggers. Most of us have returned home since last May but all of us carry Roz in our hearts. We will never forget her or stop being inspired by her.

Dear Shulte Family,

We hope that your day is full of wonderful memories of Roz. She is dearly missed by everyone in Hawaii. Our thoughts and our prayers are with you today.
May 20, 2010
thank you
May 20, 2010
Mr. and Mrs. Schulte,

I was a friend of Roslyn's in Hawaii. She was a beautiful woman and an outstanding young officer. As her sponsor upon arrival to the island, I had the pleasure of meeting her and showing her around on her first day at work. I will never forget her big smile and the bright light she shone on those around her. Her loss was felt around the world by all that knew and loved her. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers on this difficult one year anniversary.
May 20, 2010
Mr. and Mrs. Schulte,

I imagine that today is a very difficult day for you. You have been on my mind recently, as I have anticipated the arrival of this anniversary when seeing Roslyn's portrait each day. I hope you are able to have a celebration today of your beautiful daughter and the remarkable life that she lived. Should tears of sadness come, I pray that you are comforted by your sweet memories and the knowledge that she was a hero and a blessing to so many.

“Father of all, we pray to you for Roslyn, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May her soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace." Amen.

Dear Schulte family,
Roslyn will forever burn the brightest in the memories of those who knew her. I am so grateful for being able to call her a friend and will always cherish the time together in Kabul - whether bemoaning the country music being played while training in the gym or feeding stray afghan dogs together at the Bala Hissar!! The grace that Roslyn always displayed in particularly trying circumstances was an inspiration and she will never be forgotten. Of the many memories I have of my time in Afghnanistan I remember a particularly poignant speech Roz made at a service for Holocaust Remembrance Month - in the middle of a conflict many of us were experiencing first hand, she was able to rise above our daily troubles and envision the universal that many of us had lost sight of. She was truly remarkable that afternoon and I am glad I had the opportunity to witness it. I still cannot believe the news a year later. Even though the world is a better place for Roz having been here - it still feels broken. My thoughts and prayers are with you, her family circle and her close friends, throughout the year but particularly today. Thank you for bringing Roslyn into our lives, she will never be forgotten and her example helps guide me still. With sincere condolences to you all at this time.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Schulte,
Please accept my family's deepest condolences on the death of your dear daughter Roslyn. I'm a retired Air Force officer and current Air Force historian (civilian) at ARPC in Denver. I read in the Air Force News that she was awarded the Medal of Valor for her service, and wanted to know more about her life. Everything I read illustrated what a beautiful person she was, in every way. Although I was not privileged to know her, I mourn with you for one who died so young. I will be deployed to the AOR in September, and so her story really touched me. Your daughter's strong patriotism and love of country is an inspiration, and I want my 17 year old daughter to be the kind of American that your daughter was. Roslyn was and is a true hero. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always, and may Roslyn rest in the arms of the Lord.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Schulte,

I walk past a portrait of your beautiful daughter every day at the HQ of the Air Force ISR Agency. It is a privilege to remember her, her honorable service and her sacrifice each time I walk that hallway. I never got to meet Roslyn, but through the remembrances of friends and family I can see she was a a wonderful young woman and a fine officer whom I would have been honored to know.

The memorial portrait of Roslyn touched me deeply when I first saw it, as my son was also deployed to Afghanistan. Since then, he too has fallen to an IED attack. I now share your sorrow and your pain in a way that only fellow travelers on this path can. I pray that you will know the peace that only God can provide, and that He comforts you today and in the months ahead.

On 08 August a team of 100% Volunteers from all over the country and the world began "The Roslyn Schulte Memorial Humanitarian Mission" to assist children in War Torn Afghanistan. Some of these children were the very children that LT Schulte would try to help herself and with her own money. Thousands of lives were touched, eyes were healed, wounds repaired, fractures set and many local Afghans were trained to assist and care for their own in IDP/REFUGEE camps in Afghanistan. We also tried tried to show compassion though it was very hard at times with all the bombings and security threats. We can say that we know we save many young boys from recruitment by Taliban and ANTI-GOVERNMENT elements operating in the Afghan AOR. Though we could not save you, Ros we saved many in your honor and in memory of you! The mission is over now but much is still going on there as a result of this activity.Some of the world's best known reporters and photographers covered this mission as we worked BOMB rescues, normal clinics and follow up exams on those that we treated. Major General Formica's office at Camp EGGERS , Kabul was informed of our mission for Roslyn as well. The small mudd and dockey dung building where we treated hundreds in IDP camp PAWAN has been named Schulte School/Clinic. 8 young Afghan children are also educated there with help from the "Women of hope Project" which we have partnered with in Afghanistan. An email we read from Bob Schulte whilst we were in Afghanistan let us know that we had done a good thing in memory of LT. ROSLYN SCHULTE , USAF KIA AFGANISTAN MAY 2009.

Bob, Susie, and Todd,
Even though a few months have passed,
I just wanted to say that you are in my prayers daily and that Roz is in my heart. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to cope with the loss. She was a wonderful woman and made a great impact in the short time she was with us. You must be so very proud. There is nothing I can do except to let you know that she will NOT be forgotten. The ultimate sacrifice that she and your family has made will be respected, revered and remembered. I know that is little comfort, but it is important to me that you know you are being lifted up to God, even when it may not feel like it. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

I wrote a poem in honor of a young lady, from our local area, who lost her life during "Desert Storm," had it inscribed on a plaque and presented it to her unit.I think the poem applies equally to Lt. Shulte.She gave her tomorrows for our todays.


SSG William McDonald
(U.S. Army, Ret.)

He trod the snow with Washington,
his feet were numb with pain
He fired the shot heard round the world,
the prize he sought, he gained

My brother wore the Union blue,
as he climbed Henry Hill
My comrade word the Rebel gray,
as his heart lay cold and still

The Guardsman packed his duffel bag
at Uncle Sam’s request
Through years to come the Fueher’s men
would give him little rest

In the skies of Vietnam,
his wings were swept with fog
A missle arcked, a pilot died,
and touched the face of God

Someone tapped her shoulder
and said, “It is your turn,”
In his hand a worn baton,
“The race is not quite won.”

And though she would lose family,
and though she would lose friends
And though she would lose life itself,
her hand she did extend

Her teammate was still struggling
to match her faster gait
And as he passed baton to her,
he fell to seal his fate

And as she clutched that hallowed prize,
the wood was red and scarred
He whispers as he ends his watch,
“Oh yes, I was the Guard”

It was her turn to run the race,
beneath a foreign sun
Her ship had weathered every rack,
the prize she sought, she won

It was her turn to set the pace
across the burning sand
What Guard will dare to take her place,
which one extends his hand?

Tribute to a woman soldier:

She is a woman soldier
Whose service was true
She proudly served
The Red, White and Blue

She gave of her life
So others could be FREE
Without any hesitation
She joined unselfishly

She did her job well
With Honor and Pride
And served her great country
With the men alongside

We're proud today to know
That although she is gone
She goes on to glory
After a job "well done"

And so "Our Dear Sister"
We salute you today
A special soldier laid to rest
In this quiet, solemn way

We thank you for your service to our country and for paying the ultimate price for our FREEDOM. May God bless your family and comfort them at this special time.

I had the HONOR to work with 1st LT Schulte.When the news came in that she was gone everyone that knew her had not only lost the best Officer on post but also lost their best friend. IN my 4 years of service she was by far the best of the best. She cared for her troops, her country, and her family. I will probably never see another officer in my career that will ever compair to 1st LT Schulte. She will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure to meet her.I miss you LT and will never forget you.

But, her soul radiates

I am deeply sorry
This must be hard
She lived to what her
heart desired....
She made everything better
June 23, 2009
Roz' brilliant short life inspired and touched us, both as 30 year Air Force
members and as parents of talented 20-something daughters. Her wonderful
accomplishments and energy are no doubt evidence she was a 'chip off the
old block', just like her dad and mom in many ways. Jane's family is full of
lacrosse fanatics, so we understand the infectious nature of that sport. We
are certain that Roz' bravery
and dedication to duty will be the stuff of legends for many generations of
future Air Force Academy and John Burroughs grads. You are in our thoughts and
prayers. Phi alpha, brother.
June 22, 2009
My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
June 17, 2009
Sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with/for Roz and living down the hall from her in the fall of 2005 and there is no doubt in my mind that we lost one of the best people I have known. Roz had a way of going on when others seemed to want to give up. She was driven not only to be the best academically, athletically, and militarily; but more importantly she was also driven to be a friend, mentor, and role model. She possessed a quality of humbleness and selflessness that few others with her talent level possess. She always led from the front and being around her made me a better military officers and person.

Although Roz is gone she will always have a lasting affect on the world through those that were fortunate enough to know her and learn from her example. I know I am a better person and officer because of her influence on my life and I thank God for putting her in all of our lives.
June 15, 2009
Dear Susie and Bob,

Please accept my deepest condolences. I just heard about Roz and her bravery in serving our country so that my children and myself can sleep safely at night. I have fond memories of her at Cardinal baseball games and listening to your stories of her boundless energy. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless America and Roz.

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.

Schulte Family,
I never knew Roz,but through Shell I have learned that your daughter was an awesome person. She had so much to give. And she gave the most precious gift any of us could ever give to anyone-she sacrificed her life so that we are able to remain free and hopefully follow in her steps. God gives us people like Roz to teach us what it is He expects from each and every one of us-nothing but the very best. I wish I could have known your daughter. I would have been truly blessed.She is now with our almighty Father in heaven, looking lovingly down
at all of you. She will remain forever in your hearts and now in mine. Thank you
for raising such an incredible young woman.May God bless you and ease your pain and know that your daughter did not
perish in fear-Christ was with her.
Lovingly yours,

Mr and Mrs. Schultle I had the pleasure of knowing Roz while I was at the Air Force Academy in Cadet Squadron 7. She was someone who was very kind hearted and gentle. Upon word of her loss I could not believe it. She is the first classmate that I personally knew from USAFA that has fallen in battle and that has been especially hard on me. She is a hero and always will be.

God Bless

Mr. and Mrs. Schulte,

I had the pleasure of working with your daughter at DGS-5, HI. She was one of a kind officer. She knew as a Lt to sit back and learn but she also stood up when she knew something was wrong. I saw her on her way over to the desert on Feb 19 2009. I was PCSing to Ramstein and she was deploying. It was very comforting to see a familiar face on the plane. That is one thing I love about the military, you are always around family. I just want to say I am sorry to hear of your loss and of the Air Force's loss. She was a wonderful woman.

To the parents and family, I offer my heartfelt sorrow for the death of your loved one. So many times we don’t understand why this has to happen to us but know that you aren’t alone. There are many who have also suffered the death of their loved ones and we know that you will get through the day one minute by minute. When my son was killed in action I thought the world would end but through connection with others who had gone through this terrible tragedy I found that I wasn’t alone. When and if you would like to reach out and talk, vent, cry or just know how to get through each minute of the day please contact me. You are now a Gold Star Family and as such you should know that many of us are here to help and listen. May God bless and comfort you each and every day.

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 1Lt. Roslyn Schulte our Sister in Arms. To her family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Roslyn. And to Roslyn it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank her for the ultimate sacrifice she made while opposing enemy forces in Afghanistan. No greater love is shown than a man lay down his life for another. Roslyn, you are a brave 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 1,309 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Roslyn’s family and loved ones.

To the Schulte family,

I know there are no words to say, except how sorry I am for your loss. May you hold Roslyns' memory in your heart and please remember she shall 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.

The Final Inspection

"Step forward, now
How shall I deal with you;
Have you always turned the other cheek,
To my bible always true?"

The soldier snapped to attention,
"No, Lord, I guess I aint;
It seems that we who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint."

"I've had to work most Sundays,
My work was always rough;
At times I have been violent,
Because the job was tough."

"But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep;
Though I worked a lot of overitme,
When my bills became to steep."

"I never passed a cry for help,
But often shook with fears,
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I have wept unmanly tears."

"I know I don't deserve a place,
Among these good folks here;
They never wanted me around,
Unless a war was near."

"But if you have room for me,
It need not be too grand;
I never had, or needed much,
Im sure you understand."

A silence fell around that throne,
Where saints had often trod;
The dead soldier, with baited breath,
Feared judgement from his God.

"Step forward now, U.S. soldier,
You've borne your burdens well;
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done you're time in hell."

Roslyn, God bless you soldier and thank you for your brave and honorable service to a grateful nation and for paying the ultimate price for our freedom.. You are now in great company with God and so many other fallen heroes before and after you. On 5/6/08 my nephew PFC Aaron J. Ward was killed in action in Iraq and my final promise to him was to never forget him and our fallen hero’s, we will never forget their commitment and sacrifice. To the Schulte family, words cannot express the pain we now share, but our families will forever have a bond and we will be thinking of Roslyn and your family and will keep you in our thoughts & prayers. Since the loss of my nephew I have written on every single legacy page of every fallen soldier and included a photo of my nephew. I encourage you to do the same to Aaron's page. I have done this to honor my nephew but to let you know your loved one is not alone and my nephew is with him and they are now in God's gracious hands waiting for us to join them one day. From the bottom of my heart please except my sincere condolences and may the memories of your Hero carry you through each day for he will never be forgotten!

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Schulte, I heard so much about your lovely daughter and saw many photos of her at different events. One event in particular touched my heart; it was a benefit for children. I have the photograph of Roz wearing her clown costume for the children. It is my favorite photo of her. I sketched a portrait of her and plan to do a painting. (I am an artist). Would you like to have the painting? We all have our way of saying goodbye, this is my way. If it brings some small comfort to you, I would like you to have the painting.
May 29, 2009
LT, it is was wonderful knowing you and it is truly a loss to have you leave so soon. You will be missed. I hope your family knows and feels all our thoughts of support for them. I wish I had made it back from Afghanistan in time to go to your memorial.
May 29, 2009
I met Roz through Soldiers' Angels when she wrote to us and said that she would like support for a few of the females that were deployed with her that were not getting any care packages.

I have a team within Soldiers' Angels called the Ladies of Liberty- assisting the deployed females with their support needs and wants while away from their families and friends.

I quickly added the ladies AND Roz to the list of support and had been shipping packages and exchanging emails with her for some time.

I was saddened to hear that such an amazing, bright and talented young Airman had been killed in Afghanistan.

We have set up a tribute to Roz on the Soldiers' Angels Ladies of Liberty blog-

I will be setting something up in her name soon, that will reach out to all the ladies that in the future shall be at war.

We will miss you Roz- you were a ray of light. You will never be forgotten.

Shelle Michaels
Soldiers' Angels Ladies of Liberty team director

I thought I saw your face today,
in the sparkle of the morning sun.
And then I heard the angel say,
"Their work on earth is done."

I thought I heard your voice today,
then laugh your hearty laugh.
And then I heard the angel say,
"There's peace dear one at last."

I thought that you had left me,
for the stars so far above.
And then I heard the angel say,
"They left you with their love."

I thought that I would miss you so,
and never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say,
"They're with you every day."
"The sun, the wind, the moon, the stars,
will forever be around,
reminding you of the love you shared,
and the peace they've finally found.

Hopefully you can find some comfort in the words of those she touched.

My sincerest sympathies and heart go out to the Schulte family during this time of tragedy.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Lieutenant Schulte in the fall of 2008. Although brief, she left an outstanding impression on me and so many others. Not enough can be said of her professionalism, charisma and fortitude. Her passing is not only a loss to the Air Force, but all services and to the entire nation.

It was pure happenstance that I heard of her death on CSPAN on the 20th of May. Perhaps, by chance again, I may run into the Schulte family to relate an interesting and uplifting story about their wonderful daughter. Told by a Naval officer that learned a lot from an outstanding young lady who proudly wore the blue uniform of an Air Force officer.

Very respectfully and my best wishes,

To the Schulte Family--The loss of a child is unintelligible...I lost my eldest son SPC Dane R. Balcon, 5 Sept 07, Balad, Iraq. I was teaching at the United States Air Force Academy at the time when it happened. My son was a friend of USAFA, often taking leave and talking with the cadets. When he died, it shook the entire cadet wing, and I am certain with the loss of your daughter, they are shaking again. This tragedy is a little closer to home, a bit more personal, as the cadets can put a face with that name. I pray that the Peace of God stays with you and your family, and believe me if you walk by faith, no devil in hell can take away those memories, pride, and love you had and still have for your Roz. May God Bless her sweet soul.

Dear Bob, Susie, and Todd,

We honored Roz and prayed for your entire family during the Memorial Day services at the National Cemetery in Bourne, Massachusetts on Sunday, May 24th. Coincidentally, the Convocation was given by an Air Force chaplain, who had been assigned to the Air Force Academy in 2000. I felt Roz's presence immediately while I was speaking to him and felt assured that our tribute to her was in good hands.

When I spent time with Roz on the sidelines of some of her final lacrosse games in an Academy uniform, she spoke to me about her goals and aspirations. May you and all of us whose lives have been touched by Roz find peace and comfort knowing that Roz was following her dreams ... and her heart. I will always admire you for encouraging your little girl and sister to serve her country. She accomplished more in her 25 years on this earth than most of us would hope to achieve in our lifetimes ... and she was always quick to attribute her many successes to her loving family. Roz served our country with incredible bravery, dedication, honor, leadership and compassion for others.

You are a very special family ... and will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I will never forget 1st LT Roslyn Littmann Schulte ... SHALOM.

Our son Gavin Cummings was in Roslyn's squadron at the Air Force Academy and the sorrow in his voice was so profound on the news of her passing.

Mr. and Mrs. Schulte (Bob, Susie) and Todd,

I never knew Roslyn (Roz), but learned about her greatness upon her untimely passing. I am a friend of Ginny Orthwein's and I also work in the intelligence community at the Air Force's National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) here in St. Louis. Roslyn sounds so much like my oldest daughter Katelyn, a Government major at Georgetown. Kate attends there with many Burroughs grads and they are all top notch people. You should be so proud of the choice Roz made to defend freedom for our great country, but how unbearable the sudden loss of your little girl at such a young age.

May the Holy Spirit, whose peace is beyond human understanding, enter your hearts and comfort you the rest of your lives here on Earth, until you see your little girl with her shining smile again in Heaven. Her gifts will live on in the lives of all whom she touched, myself included.

I unfortunately could not attend the Memorial Day events honoring your daughter's life and service, but I want you to know that Roz and you all are in my prayers and will continue to be so.

Susie, I cannot tell you how sorry I am to hear of your loss. I know you were very proud of Roz, but there is no greater loss than a child taken so early in life. You and Bob and your family are in our prayers.

Roslyn was near and dear to the hearts of all 06'. It is because the Academy produces true leaders of integrity and compassion like her that we can be proud of our commissioning source. She was a friend, a mentor, an inspiration, and above all a true American Hero that the class of 06' will forever honor.
May 24, 2009
Our prayers are with you. We are very sorry for your loss. She touched so many lives in so many parts of our world. Lt. Matt Clayton (USAFA '05) prays for you as well.

Schulte Family,
I didn't know your daughter personally but I work in the same office as she and I had seen her around from time to time. I remember everytime I rendered her a salute walking by outside, she smiled at me as she went along, and asked me how I was doing; not every officer does that so I appreciated her very much. There is a different feeling here amongst her coworkers but I believe that we as a team will become stronger thanks to Lt. Schulte. Thank you for encouraging her to become an inspiring leader and just know that she was very well taken care of while here in Hawaii. Her strengths and leadership will continue on through all the people she touched. God bless you all!
May 24, 2009
Bob and Susie,
In this time of your deep loss we extend to you our sorrow and tender understanding.Roz was a very precious gift to all.
May 24, 2009
Susie, Bob and Todd,
Roz was a great friend and classmate of Bridgett's. We are very honored to have met her and shared good times at the Academy and on the Lacrosse field. Our hearts and prayers reach out to all of you. We know she served us and her country with leadership and integrity. She will be greatly missed.
God Bless,
Meredith, Bill and Jeni Whiting

As the one of the very proud parents and fondly remembering and sharing those happy moments we as parents and family members had on the Graduation morning of 31 May 2006 of the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadets Class of 2006 I am with the deepest of sincere sympathies wishing you and your family the best. I am wishing you all my deepest regrets and sympathy. 1stlt Eric Carey called us of the news of both his returning home from Iraq yesterday and then followed by telling us of your loss. It was a very bittersweet moment for me. Eric knew your daughter having graduated from both the Academy and Intelligence School together. It has really impacted my Memorial Day. We are now enroute to one parade today in Rensselaer and Albany tomorrow. It has really impacted me in so many ways. 1stLt Roslyn L. Schulte will live on in your memories forever. I know that Eric will always keep her in mind. I will also. We are very proud of your special daughter.

Thank you very much for your daughter's sevice.

At Camp Eggers this evening, the chairs are set, the quiet has set in, and the U.S. flag flies at half-staff in a light spring breeze as we prepare to honor Ros and her co-worker Mr. Shawn Pine here tomorrow morning. What a tremendous young lady and professional officer we have lost! In our sorrow we have been buoyed by the details of her exceptional life, and we have found strength to move forward with our mission as our tribute to her. Please know that Ros will be of blessed memory to all of us here.
May 24, 2009
Dear Robert, Susan and Todd, I never your daughter Roslyn but our son Eric Carey was in her graduation class in 2006 from the Air Force Academy. Eric spoke very highly of her and time spent at the academy. She is a hero, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

Dear Bob, Susie and Todd,
We are so sorry to hear about Roz. We will never forget her. She was always so vibrant, happy and energetic. We had such good times together on the lacrosse field at West Point and Annapolis with the Air Force Academy team. The last time we saw Roz was last July (2008) when we ate at an Italian restaurant in Kailua, HI, along with Emily, and had such a wonderful visit. We will treasure all those moments always. Roz was a beautiful, intelligent, wonderful young lady and we will miss her greatly. You provided her with a fantastic life. You are all in out thoughts and prayers always. Thank you, Roz, for being you--the true American hero. May you rest in peace. God Bless You Always.
Love, the Harris Family--Ian, Laura, Emily and also, Ethan, Alyssa and Andrew
