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.
