Lacey. Wow brother! After all the years gone by , I finally found you. 2003 since we spoke. Life sure changed from being roommates at Bragg as privates. Driving around in your beloved green jeep. Haha. The wounds of how everything went down are still a touch and go subject and one that I still look for answers for. I hope you know that I've never forgot you and just how sorry I am for not being able to be with you on the deployment and through life there after. I'll keep holding on to the memories and good times we had. To see you went far in your service and fast was no surprise. Searches for you in the past lead me nowhere but i found you this time. Not the way i expected to. You were a hero to me in many ways then and through the years after, you are even more so now. Ill charish the many good times and stories we shared and one day we will get the chance to laugh together like we did back then. You are truly a special soul and wore wings in many aspects of life. I will see you again my friend! Until then: ALL THE WAY! To the Family: I'm so very sorry for your tremendous loss! He was one of the best guys I ever met and really was a privilege to call him a friend and a brother!

Hey, brother. Just wanted to say that I am proud to have served with you, and had a lot of good times in Afghanistan with you. No matter how tired, or pissed we were from mission you would always take the time to make sure our trucks were square to roll back out. Or that one time one of our trucks got stuck in the afghan mud in that village, up to the undercarriage and you had your guys come tow us out, lol. Thanks for that. No matter what you always had a smile on and were ready to crack a joke, boosting the morale. I remember when you got that tight helicopter, lol... You were always flying that thing around man.. Lol, We made jokes about turning it into a UAV. You were always there for your guys, and definitely willing to fight tooth nail for them. You taught me a lot of good values to have as a leader, and I will never forget them brother. I wish I could've been on this last deployment with you.. Ashley and the kids are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you brother, you will always be missed and never forgotten. Ashley, if you ever need anything feel free to ask the Palatas family, we will help any way we can. God bless you and yours.

It's funny to look back as an adult upon your childhood...flipping through faces of people that were apart of your life, but so many years later you try to remember them. Childhood is a sad thing in some aspects because as a child you sometimes do not reach out to people you would normally reach out to as an adult. When you grow up you see different things about people and are more curious to know things about them. I saw all these things because these are truths I have about you. Childhood has so many "groups" (not sure that ever changes.) I know for sure we weren't in the same "group" of people but we had MANY of the same friends. I know for sure that you didn't go unnoticed. I remember passing you in the halls and catching a glimpse of that contagious smile. You had it and it continues to live on through your Lily?. I'm sad that I didn't get to know you the way everyone else on this site may have. I have come to know you through all the messages I have read about you. I have connected with Ashley first by sending a special sign I created for Lily and now I've established an amazing relationship with her. She is a sweet girl and I'm lucky to call her a friend. You will live on through your gorgeous little girl and I know without a shadow of a doubt you will NEVER be forgotten.

I can remember being on patrol with Ashley when we first got to Hawaii and we got a flat tire. We both looked at each other and were like um yea we aren't changing that tire so Ashley called Kelly who brought a soldier and they changed our tire for us :) they had such an amazing bond that I've never seen between two people besides my own parents. Lily your daddy loved your mom more than anything in the world (well except for you)!!!

The ultimate sacrifice deserves the ultimate respect… and at the very minimum to always be remembered. My family is grateful and we won't forget you.
