To SPC Abad: You were an amazing Soldier, and I was proud to have been your first squad leader. You helped me a great deal when it came time to train the rest of the squad. Thanks to your eagerness to continually improve in everything that you tried to do, our gun became the fastest, most skilled Mortar Team in the 173rd ABCT. Thank you for serving our country. It is because of brave young men and women such as yourself that it is such an honor to serve in the Armed Forces of the United States! You will be missed forever, and I will see you at the Great Drop Zone in the Sky. Sky Soldiers, All the Way, Airborne.

To the family of SPC Abad: My family and I are truly and deeply saddened by your loss. It was an honor and a privilege to serve beside Sergio. Whether I was acting in the capacity of his supervisor or his equal, he always showed the proper respect. I will always remember Sergio zooming down the hallway of the barracks in his rollerblades and on his bike. He was excellent at entertaining his fellow Soldiers, and he always put others needs before his own. He would gladly give another Soldier his meal when food was short, even though, many times, that meant he had little to eat. He gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, so, therefore, if you need anything, please let me know at the e-mail address below and I will do whatever I can to get help for you

Sergio, you were such an amazing person filled with so much light and passion. Through our light encounters in high school and unexpectedly celebrating the new year with you, I have kept you in my thoughts. You were one of those people that are hard to forget. It's unfair what happened; but the fact that you've made such an impact on so many people's lives shows how much of an amazing person you were. Let the world know how much we all care for you.

I read about Sergio in the Herald the other day. It made me cry, and thats not something I do easily. I didn't have the honor of knowing him but it touched me deeply. I cannot imagine what his loved ones are going through right now. May G-D grant you all the strength to get through this tragedy, and may G-D Bless and watch over Sergio and all of his family, Fiancée, and unborn baby girl always. :(

Though I did not know Sergio personally, he will always be a hero to me. Nothing I can say will take away the pain that you feel right now. Please accept my sincerest condolences and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
