To all of Samuel's family, my name is Cheyenne and I am a senior at Winfield City High School (Winfield,AL)and I would like to share my condolences with you all. My Government class has been tasked with finding and writing in the guestbooks of recently fallen soldiers in honor of veterans day and through my search I found Mr. Hairston. I myself have a friend who is currently in military training and I do fear that he may get killed in action, but I also know that every man and woman who goes overseas are incredably brave and it is because of them that we are able to live the life that we do and for that I say thank you. to Samuel. To the fallen. To you, his family. I am very glad that we are able to live in our country safe from harm because of those we have lost and those who are still fighting. Personally, I do not plan to join any form of the military. the closest I get is with my marching band, but that just goes to show that I'm better suited for animation than the brave job our soldiers hold. I hope that everyone who knew Samuel is comforted by the fact that his spirit still lives on in every American heart that walks this story today. If you would like to respond to this then I would love to hear from you! Just email my teacher via the little contact link. Thank you!
