Brother, thank you. It is hard to believe that 6 years have passed since you gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation. You are missed, but never forgotten.

Six-Year Anniversary - - Remembering “C.J.”

Dearest C.J.,

Today marks the 6-year anniversary of your passage Home to be with The Lord. This family has never been the same since you left us all so unexpectedly. We find comfort in keeping your memory close to our hearts and in telling others the story of your service and sacrifice.

There have been major changes regarding the CPL Christopher J. “C.J.” West Troop Medical Clinic, Iraq, which was dedicated in your honor in 2009. When the clinic was turned-over to the Iraqi people, the West family donated the clinic signs and memorabilia to the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD) Museum at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Thousands of others are now learning about your story, your heroism.

“Run for the Fallen” continues to be part of our lives. I logged 8.43 miles on the last “run” in August 2013, and dedicate more miles to you throughout the year. Since 2008, I have logged over 900 miles in your memory and hope to reach a total of 1,000 miles before the next “run” in August 2014.

In keeping with tradition, I made 6-year anniversary decorations for your grave at Arlington National Cemetery. There are hearts with your name inscribed on each, as well as, a variety of other decorations that I have collected throughout the year. The family will make it all look beautiful, I know.

We miss you. We love you. We remember you.

Always in our hearts!

Much love,

To the family of CPL West, may you know that your son's sacrifice was not in vain, and we (his brothers and sisters in arms) have not forgetten.

I just wanted you to know, that I think of the sacrifice your family has paid and am thankful for having the honor of knowing your son!

To the family and friends of Spc. Christopher J. West:
It has truly been my honor to sign Christopher's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, this may be the last message I'm able to write. Please forgive me and know that Christopher will always be remembered in my home.
With love and respect ~ Peggy

Five-Year Anniversary - - Remembering “C.J.”


Dearest C.J.,

It is hard to believe that it's been five years- -half a decade- -since you made your journey Home to Heaven. It seems like only yesterday that we all gathered at your funeral to say “Goodbye!” Your absence has left a hole in the heart of this family, and we all know that things will never, ever, be the same without you. So we each try to fill our own hearts with memories of your heroic life, and work to keep your legacy alive.

“Run for the Fallen” remains an on-going project for your family, friends and fellow troops. I logged 8.55 miles for you in August 2012, and accumulate miles for you throughout the year.

This weekend, your mom and dad sent photos of your beautifully-decorated grave in Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery, and it is obvious that you are much-loved. The huge yellow wreath, Cowboys shirt, flags, and the heart decorations that I made for you, all symbolize how special you are to each and every one of us.

We miss you. We love you. We remember you.

Always in our hearts!

Much love,

Hannah Edahl Monsimer
