May God bless SPC Jake Velloza and his family and fiance. Freedom isn't free and SPC Velloza and his family have paid that unbelievable cost for the rest of us.

I have "adopted" the veterans at the cemetery at Olema, and have been putting up flags on all their graves for the past decade or so. I will take special care to insure that Jake always has a flag on his for memorial day and veterans day.

Re: SPC Jake R Velloza

I represent PRAYER SHAWLS 4 FALLEN SOLDIERS (PS4FS), an organization that since October 2007 has sent over 3,290 prayer shawls to military families who have lost a loved one. We are an organization of over 245 groups from all over the country. We make every effort to reach families even when post cards are returned after they have moved. Would you kindly send me a contact email/address so that we may send a loving hand-made prayer shawl to the family? Thank you!

”Honor and Remember” - “Project Compassion” We love our Soldiers! We love our country and we cannot express enough love and compassion to the families of our fallen heroes. War does not discriminate – It breaks our hearts to see the faces of the fallen. We want to give this gift to the hero’s Mother, Father and/or spouse. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization! Over 1,800 portraits have been completed and shipped to the parents and or spouse - at no cost as this is a gift from one American to another!
This is a gift! We have some wonderful sponsors who help with the costs, and only want you know that we care.
Contact us directly at Projectcompassion@manti.com or go to www.heropaintings.com . If you have already had a portrait completed, we pray that you are enjoying the portrait and God Bless You.
Sincerely and Respectfully,

Man I can't even tell you how much you meant to my family. My daughter still asks where you are and all I can say is he is a HERO and is in heaven with Grandpa Nation, and Grandma Brenda. We talked about doing the Bounty/Bail Bonds business where we could go out and hunt the fugitives that skip out. I just want to say that no matter what you were a great friend to me and my family and I considered you family.

To Mr and Mrs Velloza
It has been has been three months and it seems like I just got the news. I cannot begin to imagine the pain you must be feeling. I am truly sorry for your loss. Jake was my friend in my platoon. When he was killed it was us who carried him to the plane in mosul. It was an honor I loved him like a brother and will miss him as one. He was often at the house, we would be under the hood trying to make that little Evo faster. I want you to know he talked about you often. He loved his family and always had a good story about his life. He was truly a one of a kind guy. I want you to know he will AllWAYS be remembered by me. His friends will never forget him. We (F.I.S.T.) will never forget. You raised a son who grew to be a man. He was an honerable and brave man. He will live forever in our memories. His picture hangs on my wall so that I never forget (why) as soldiers we do this. May you know that we all are better for have known him . He was taken much too young. Thank you for raising such a fine young man. SPC G.

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Spc. Jake Velloza, and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of freedom and liberty. Sadly, America has lost one of its finest heroes, the U.S. has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage, which they will love and respect forever. Today, because of the sacrifice Spc. Jake Velloza has made, the house of freedom is stronger, sturdier, and more secure.

To the family and friends, of Spc. Jake Velloza, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to carry on. Just as you were always with him when he was deployed overseas, know that he will always be with you wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Spc. Jake Velloza is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Spc. Jake Velloza the flag of the United States of America has your blood sewn into the fabric; it shall wave forever in your honor.

Freedom requires sacrifice the protected will never know.
