It's been a long time. I didn't know much about him, other than the fact that we graduated the same year, and that he was from Dwight, Illinois. He was 19 and I was 20 at the time. We were both Lance Corporals in Iraq at the same time, at the same place: Camp Taqqadum, Iraq in Al Anbar Province in 2007*. I spent a lot of time at the armory, in fact, if I had spare time at all that's usually where I was. I normally went there to hang out with a few other Marines with whom I was friends with that also worked in the armory at the time, however, he and I were just acquaintances talking in passing or on some occasions seeing each other at the Iraqi Tea Shop that we had on base. Occasionally chatting about how hot it was or our general interests in what we planned on doing after the Marine Corps. Still, he had an impact. Always seemed to know what was going on in his workspace and knew how to take charge of certain situations. It wasn't until the evening on March 15 2007* when I met with one of the other armorers that I heard about his passing. I was completely dumbstruck. I will never forget him.

Prayer Shawls 4 Fallen Soldiers ([email protected]) is an organization with groups throughout the country who strive to send handmade prayer shawls and/ or lap robes to families who have lost a loved one in service to our country. Members of Trindle Spring Lutheran Church in Mechanicsburg, PA would like to honor your son’s sacrifice and memory by sending our prayers and comfort through a shawl which we will mail to you. If you are interested, please contact me at [email protected] with the names and addresses and what they would like to receive. We will send them as soon as possible. Also, if you know of any other families who are grieving the loss of a loved one who died serving our country, please pass along my e-mail address, as our organization can no longer get family contacts through the military. May God bless you and comfort you in the days ahead. Sincerely, Lynne
