I was Vorn's squad leader/ First Line NCO. I want to apologize to all who knew and loved him especially his family for taking so long to speak about who he was. His death had a very large impact on me and still does but that is no excuse once again I'm deeply sorry for taking this long. Mack was our little brother when he first got to the unit we thought we thought he was out of place we were hard chargers for sure back in those days and days before we deploy this small happy go lucky kid shows up with his two battle buddies. I feared he was in the wrong unit out of place man was I wrong. Mack quickly became known throughout the unit for choking people out in spontaneous wrestling matches (especially NCO's). He almost even got me once and at the time I was about 6'1 215 and probably one of the fittest Soldiers in the squadron. Within a week we knew he was as tough, determined and possessed as much heart as anyone in the squadron. During deployment he represented the best of us his potential started to really shine through. He was brave, eager, and a true testament to what it means to be a Soldier. We were deployed in probably the worst area in Iraq and no matter what they thew at us Mack remained unrattled. I remember one day I was heading out on mission and Mack was returning from outside the wire we crossed paths and he was covered in a white substance. I asked him what he was covered in and he told me fire retardant. Insurgents had shot up his humvee on the way back and a round hit the fire extinguisher bolted under his seat. He causally recounted the attack to me while he smoked a cigarette like a 25 year combat vet. I asked him if he was ok he smiled and said yup sergeant put out his cigarette and went back to work. Thats the Soldier Mack was beyond his years in courage, heart, determination, and any other quality that makes a Soldier. We all loved him so much I don't think there was a Soldier in the squadron who's life he didn't touch in a positive way. We loved and still love him like our little brother. Mack was the best of us.

Little brother rest in peace we still tell your story when ever we cross paths and to every one of our Soldiers and friends we have met along the way. I miss you.
