Jon, it's been awhile and I still think of you often. Certainly on Memorial Day, but often throughout the year. It still hurts, and I still miss your presence on this earth. For me, Memorial Day will always be your day. You epitomize not only the sacrifice, but the honor the day is meant to hold sacred. My children know your name, and I remind them of you every year.

Hello,
We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Stiles Family know that we recently made a small donation to the "Two Angels Foundation Inc." in honor of Jonnie L. Stiles US Army Sergeant. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.

Jon, I was in Germany for medical reasons on the day you passed. When I called the unit in Afghanistan to report in, they told me we lost someone but couldn't give me any details. I was thinking about you today and was doing a search. I found this site.... Rest in peace my friend. SSG Hilliard Trahan 927th Sapper Co.

I served with Sgt. Stiles while he was still in the Marine Corps in our units (CSSG-3) Marksmanship Training Unit. He was one of the best NCO's I've ever served with. His death comes as a total shock and even though it has been many years since I have seen him I think of him often. Rest In Peace, Sgt. Stiles....Semper Fidelis.

Jon,

I was thinking of you on the anniversary of your passing. I've been to many places here at Camp Shelby where we had so much fun those years ago, and smiled when I remembered you and those times. I still can't believe that you're gone. The world is so much poorer for your passing, but richer for your passing through it. I miss you, buddy.

Bubba Jon!... So many years ago… the phone kept ringing… as I answered, your voice almost shouting and excited said “Hi Cecil! Aren't you gonna wish me happy birthday?” My mind was at odd… it's November! Did I forget something? You were so proud AND ANNOYED that I did not know! Lesson learned!!! You did not have to remind me after that… I made sure to call you and congratulate you in this special day every year! - - - - I will forever wonder if you got to see my message on Nov/10/2008 wishing you an awesome USMC day – including a link to Godaddy's montage video – I really hope you got to see it! I want you to know that I remembered as previous years… So here it comes again, congratulations on this day! I'm so proud of you being a Marine! - - - Oh… I remember your first visit at home after your graduation! You looked GREAT with your uniform… At one point you gave such a look when I offered to iron your uniform! “No… it's ok… thanks… I have a special way to do this” and there you started proudly ironing your uniform. It was just the beginning. - - - Love you and miss you son of mine. Semper Fi.

”Honor and Remember” - “Project Compassion” We love our Soldiers! We love our country and we cannot express enough love and compassion to the families of our fallen heroes. War does not discriminate – It breaks our hearts to see the faces of the fallen. We want to give this gift to the hero’s Mother, Father and/or spouse. We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization! Almost 2,000 portraits have been completed and shipped to the parents and or spouse - at no cost as this is a gift from one American to another!
This is a gift! We have wonderful sponsors who help with the costs, and want you know that everyone here at Project Compassion does and will always CARE.
Contact us directly at [email protected] or go to www.heropaintings.com . If you have already had a portrait completed, we pray that you are enjoying the portrait and God Bless You.

SGT Stiles was in an aviation class of mine while I attended Metro State in Denver. He had this very calming & caring personality about him. He never missed an opportunity to crack a perfectly timed joke which even had our professor trying not to laugh. It was an honor & privilege to have known him. He truely was the best our country has to offer. I was very in awe of the man I called my friend.

Stiles...I'm so proud you acheived your goal of getting back in. I know you worked tirelessly to do so. It was very difficult to hear when you had fallen but I knew you did so protecting your brothers and our country. I will never forgot our rides home on the lightrail. Thank you for your friendship and guidance. I wear my memory bracelet everday & I'll never forget you brother!

Jon, brother, I just found out, and I am going to miss you so much. I have so much respect for you and how hard you fought to serve. I am honored to have been your friend, and I will never forget you. I hope to see you one day on the high ground.

This country has lost a very, very good man. One of the best I have ever known.

Launa, you probably don't even remember meeting me. Jon was so dedicated to you. I've never in my life seen a man who loved his wife more. He made me want to be that good as a husband someday. May God bless you and carry you through until you can see Jon again.

Prayer for Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen

Jonnie, I just wanted to say thank you for your brave and honorable service to a grateful nation, a nation in mourning for our fallen heroes. You like so many other soldiers chose to serve our nation when needed most and with your life you protected the very core of what America stands for. My nephew PFC Aaron J. Ward also made that sacrifice on 5/6/2008 when he was killed in action in Iraq. As I mourn for my nephew I mourn for you and every fallen soldier and know that you all will forever be in my thoughts and prayers, we as a nation will never forget you. I stand tall and salute you Jonnie and from the bottom of my heart I thank you for the nights we at home were able to sleep without fear and know that we are safe because you and your fellow soldiers stood watch. To the Stiles family, words cannot express the pain we now share, but our families will forever have a bond and we will be thinking of Jonnie and your family and will keep you in our thoughts & prayers. Please accept my heart felt condolences and my prayer that god help you cope with this tragic loss and may the memories of your HERO carry you through each day. From one Gold Star family to another!

To the Stiles family,

I know there are no words to say, except how sorry I am for your loss. May you hold Jonnies' memory in your heart and please remember he shall never be forgotten.

...For you every single soldier
Those who served so honorable
Your life was forever altered
While I’m home safe and free
I stand with grateful admiration
I stand respectful and so proud
I know I’m only a civilian
And I don’t even know if it’s allowed.

But I salute you; allow me the honor
to salute you with permission let me say
Even though I hold no rank know that from my heart
My humble gratitude comes from the deepest part.
I salute you.

You gave your life for all of us and I pray that God can give your wife, my uncle, my aunt and my cousins the solace that you are watching over them right next to his side.

Rest in peace warrior,

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Un saludo a un heroe y nuestras oraciones para tu descanso eterno que Dios eligio para que estes a su lado...solo puedo decir que los instrumentos que Dios elige para esa fecha son impredecibles y siempre se relacionan con lo que elegimos como proyecto de vida...te digo esto por que los rencores y el odio solo alimentan el lado oscuro de nuestras almas.....nadie cambia la fecha de nuestro nacimiento y partida a la eternidad, son leyes divinas y como tales debemos aceptarlas....no es facil aceptar esto para los que estamos y quedamos extrañandote, solo le pido a Dios que le de la fortaleza y resignacion a Lynn, Ceci, tu madre y tus hermanos para comprender tu ausencia....nunca tuve el honor de conocerte pero te siento como un extraordinario sobrino del cual estoy muy orgulloso; este mensaje es parte de los sentimientos de mi familia, Leo, Cecivon, Carolita, Jose Luis y tu tio Richard

A very young Marine looks at us from a much earlier photo, but even then he shows determination and great pride in his Corps and the uniform he wears. The Sgt. who appears in the photo on this page is older, more experienced, still loyal to his country and still a credit to his family and friends. Rest in Peace Sgt Jonnie Stiles.

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Sgt. Jonnie Stiles our Brother in Arms. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Jon. And to Jon it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the ultimate sacrifice he made for his country while opposing terrorist forces in Afghanistan. No greater love is shown than a man lay down his life for another. Jon, you are a brave Warrior, a true Patriot and a national Hero. With your passing, our Country has lost a National Treasure. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,409 members of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion in Shreveport, Louisiana, I extend our sympathies and our condolences to Jon’s family and loved ones.

Dear Family of Sgt. Stiles,
Jon is now your real life hero even though he is gone. On September 11th, 2008, I lost my cousin MiKey in Afghanistan. I really didn't understand why something so horrible would happen to one of my loved ones but God has a plan for everything. And everytime "God Bless the USA" is sung just think of the line in the song that says " I won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me" because that song means more to you from now until forever. I am deeply sorry for your loss.

"You are here today for three reasons. First, because you are here to defend your homes and your loved ones. Second, you are here for your own self respect, because you would not want to be anywhere else. Third, you are here because you are real men and all real men like to fight. When you, here, everyone of you, were kids, you all admired the champion marble player, the fastest runner, the toughest boxer, the big league ball players, and the All-American football players. Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser. Americans despise cowards. Americans play to win all of the time."

Our family's prayers are with you. Thank you for your service. I, too, went back in service. He was a great soldier and patriot to do such a thing. God bless.
