I would like to thank Col Howard and your entire family for all you have done for our country. I am the mom of a soldier on his second deployment in Afghanistan. Col Howard and your entire family serve as an inspiration to all of us who have loved ones in the military. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

I feel so proud to know that I was born in Opelika, AL, where COL Howard was from. I as a Viet Nam veteran and a fellow American can never find words to express the graditude we all owe COL Howard for his service.

Robert L.

Thanks again, Robert. RIP, and just maybe, on a special day, we will meet again in a field of flowers.. PT Irish, Peoria, AZ.

Thinks to Col. Howard a lot of good man are alive today. Words can not say what a great Hero and leader he was. I looked up to him as a friend and a leader. God blessed this nation for giving us Robert Howard.
