To the family of Mark Brooks, I am deeply saddened by the news of Marks passing. I just found out today, 28FEB2016, only through our group page on Facebook called Field Station Misawa; its where many of us served together in the Army. That is where I knew Mark from as a soldier. I can assure you, there are many of us now discussing this in reflection of him. I can tell you personally, I admired his spirit, his energy and his constant zeal. I knew of his efforts in Boxing in Japan, and he was a dedicated soldier, heart of gold. I hope you find our webpage on FB, you will find many of his comrades here, we were a very small community, transferring around the world to only select locations, we would always bump into each other because of our skills. Please take this to your heart, this assurance, from our community to your family, we also will miss Mark. Perhaps it is this form of reflection that gives us peace in knowing such moments are cherished.
