I miss you so much and now Kyleigh, from the name you wanted to name your little girl was taken from us on Saint Patricks day, and she is with you and God. I want to be with you both but again neither of you want that. Losing the fight here hun. Missing both of you so much. Trying so hard, Cannot forget anything, cannot forgive anyone and that is just the beginning of how I feel. Wish you were here to help me along all the time, want to hold little Kyleigh, she was one you know, in my arms again. This is just horrible, horrible times.
I love you both.

On this day and with each day that we enjoy our freedom, I would like to give thanks and let you know that I do not take our troops for granted. May you experience God when you feel your loss.
September 30, 2009
It has been almost two years now and I can't get through it. I wish there was more help out here but I have tried to no avail. I miss you and love you but I know now that I am grieving for myself not you because I know where you are and how safe, loved, warm, and cared about by family and other friends.
If I ever get to the point that am going to join you, please meet up with me so I can hug you all I can. I feel you with me in my deepest depressions and know you want me to celebrate your life, I am trying so hard. I was pregnant with you, carried you in my belly till I had to give birth to you alone. Then your dad came along and after a few days he wanted you to be his, like you said anybody can be a father but it takes a real man to be a daddy. I chose you in the beginning of my pregnancy and Daddy chose you to be his son, we raised you with strengths, love, compassion which I believe gave you the strength to make the decisions you made on your own, uninhibited and without regrets. You took responsibilities you weren't ready for but what could we do but step back and watch.
Things are going to be happening soon enough that you will understand but others won't. I hope you will approve like you have let me know when you come around. I love you and miss you.XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Yesterday, Memorial Day 2009, I ordered a Hero Bracelet with Juctin's name. I did not know him but found his name in the database. I am originally from Dover, NH, and a Vietnam Veteran.

Juctin, this weekend I've had the pleasure of meeting your mom, sister and niece. We are at the TAPS National Seminar and are getting ready to go to Arlington this morning. I hope to know more about you and your mom and I will always remain in touch. Tell my son Buck hi and that we are doing well too.

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.

The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”

I did not know Juctin, but I am remembering
his service and sacrifice. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

I am the older sister of PFC Juctin Richard Patrick McDaniel...
I'd like to take the time to thank everyone that has left condolences on this guest book. It has been really nice to read. Recently, the 4th month of him being gone has just passed. I have had a very hard time with it. Juctin was not only my brother, but my best friend. I miss him more and more with each passing day, but knowing that there are other people out there feeling the same way makes this a reality, and helps to know that I could find someone to talk to that understands my pain. I'm glad that this site is up, it is wonderful to read so many nice things about my brother, and nice to read those posts of old friends. Thank you all again for your kind thoughtfull words. I greatly appreciate it.

With the deepest regret, I have just learned of the death of Private First Class McDaniel. As a Vietnam Veteran and the State Chaplain of the Georgia Society, Sons Of The American Revolution, I speak for our President, Charlie A. Newcomer, III and the more than 1,400 SAR members around the State of Georgia in humbly expressing the condolences of a grateful Society. Wrapped in the integrity of service to our nation and the inestimable values of duty, honor and country, your American hero stood on a wall of freedom for us all. This precious life, lived and lost in love of America, epitomized every attribute of patriotism the Sons Of The American Revolution hold dear. And, as Americans, we could never repay the debt we owe ..!! Nor the debt we owe you… the family of one of America's best ...!!!

Dear family of PFC Juctin McDaniel, my name is SSG Robert Baker. I was one of PFC McDaniel's Non-Commissioned Officers in the platoon. First I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of a fine young man and a outstanding soldier. I only wish I had a chance to share memories of Juctin for as you all remembered him throughout his life. He help me realize that besides being good soldiers which,is important in this line of work, being a good person is just as important. That's what a 19 year old kid, PFC Juctin Mcdaniel, taught this old Staff Sergeant How not to take this life too serious, and how to be a kid at heart. Thanks McDaniel family for letting apart of your family join apart of ours.

Dear Juctin Family,

When I'm Gone

When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember the smile.

Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun.

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day,
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay,

And come in the shade of evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.

To the family of Pfc. Juctin R. McDaniel,

Our sincerest and heartfelt condolences are extended to you for the loss you have endured.

I am so saddened and shocked to hear of the loss of your son, Juctin. I remember when you had him and how tiny and small he was. I know how terribly difficult it is to lose someone so young. I am thinking about you and your family.

May God bless and keep the family and friends of Pfc. Juctin R. P. McDaniel. We lost our only son in Iraq on April 17, 2007. I wish I could say things will return to normal, but you already know that is not possible. The great void this tragedy has left in your family will never be filled, you can only learn to live on with those feelings. Hold dear the precious memories of your Hero, his smile, his personality and his sense of humor will bring comfort in the days ahead. Know that he will never be forgotten and his sacrifice can never be repaid by a grateful nation. As the days proceed stay close to family and friends, welcome their support and their memories.

Stand down soldier, your duty done, the line is held, you are relieved.

I'm writing today to acknowledge the loss of Juctin McDaniel. I am a 2006 graduate of Merrimack Valley, the high school Juctin had attended. He was in my sophomore english class. Although I didn't know him all that well, I am deeply saddened to hear of his death. It bothers me to think that I've only been out of high school for a year an a half and, already, two of my former classmates have died (the other being Cody Blake, whose death was not related to the war). It worries me to think about all of the other people from my class who have joined the services. I'm sorry to whom it may concern for their loss of Juctin and I'm also sorry for the losses of all of the other relatives of men and women who have died due to the war.
December 20, 2007
I am writing to offer my deepest sympathies to you and your family over the loss of your HERO Pfc Juctin R P McDaniel. I lost my son in Iraq on May 6/2007, so I can well understand your pain of losing a loved one so dear.

I pray you will be guided by a higher power to give you peace, comfort and strength in this time.

To the Family and Friends of this Soldier:
I will stand in grief with this soldier's family to honor him. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life, but I promised Brent that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.
We lost our son SFC Brent A. Adams on 12/1/05 and it seems like yesterday. I wish so badly there were things I could say to you right now to make the pain you are feeling go away, but I know first hand there simply are no words that will bring you the comfort and peace your heart aches for. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you go through this tragedy moment by moment and as you mourn this loss.
We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with as our hearts both burst with pride and pain together.
I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally. While they can never be replaced, neither will they ever be forgotten. You must trust that sometime, someday the loving memories you have will help to sustain you and help you go on. This courageous soldier will forever be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well.
To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort: When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. The one thing that cannot be taken from you is your wonderful memories that now will mean more than ever.
If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero.
God Bless this soldier and family who gave all and God Bless for setting up this site where families can so quickly share their condolences and prayers with others like themselves.

Please know how Deeply Sorry I am, to learn of the loss of Pfc. Juctin P. McDaniel.
As a parent, who has lost a daughter suddenly and
having lost a brother to war...
I am aware of the deep and devastating pain that you are experiencing.
The overwhelming heartache, seems to surface through our shock, as the time passes.
Please hang on to your Faith and know that you will get through this.

May the memories of your Brave Young Soldier, remain in your heart always and give you strength through the difficult days ahead, and may Juctin Rest Safely now, in the Loving Care of God and know that he Will Never Be Forgotten.
I pray that the Peace of God will be with the McDaniel family.

I am the sister, of such a 19 year young Hero, who made the Ultimate Sacrifice in Vietnam, many years ago.

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee."
~ Psalm 55:22 ~

I sincerely hope that you can feel the thoughts of caring and support that surround you today and in the days ahead, as this Grateful Country Mourns with you, for Someone Very Precious to you, Who Is A True American Hero to all of us.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
December 19, 2007
There is nothing that I can say or do to take away the pain or bring you peace in your time of sorrow, but I will offer you and your family my heart felt condolences. I also offer you my prayers that in time the pain will easy and the memories of your HERO will carry you through each day and night. I want to thank your HERO, for his/her selfless act of becoming a member of the armed forces, his/her willingness to defend the United States of America, all that we hold sacred and for the sacrifice that will forever be etched in the memories of all those who knew him/her. Though tears can never bring him/her back, we hope that our tears express our gratitude for the sacrifice that he/she made and our sorrow at his/her passing. I believe for every fallen HERO there is a star shining brightly up above to remind us of the precious gift we were given.

Your mission on earth is complete and you are now a member of GOD’s Heavenly armed forces. Stand down brave warrior and take your rightful place in Heaven with all the HEROES who have passed before.

I made a special promise to LE RON A. WILSON, a dear family friend who joined the Army with three other friends, one of whom is my son (Le Ron was killed in action on 07/06/07 at the age of 18) on the day he was laid to rest as I touched his coffin, that I would never forget him nor would I forget those that gave their lives for our country before him, with him and after him and so when I came across, I thought what a great way to keep my promise to Le Ron, so I will continue to leave tributes in each guest book until the day there is no longer the need to leave these tributes to a FALLEN HERO.


I would also like to tell you about a website,,
where some wonderful people will make wood portraits of your fallen Hero for free for the immediate family. I became aware of this site when I wanted to do something special for Le Ron’s mother.
