Twenty years ago today, our lives were turned upside down. On this anniversary day though, we had one of the most special memories made, courtesy of your fellow classmates from your Recruit class. Out of the approx. 25 or so remaining from the class of '95 (started with 45), eleven showed up from all corners of the state to honor your sacrifice. This was a holiday weekend, and they drove for hours, in some cases, taking time away from family to pay tribute to a fallen brother. Our family is so grateful and humbled by this class act...Thank You! We were able to share stories and talk about your death, probably for some, this was the first opportunity to share experiences. You have a lot of good people who still remember you! We will always love you and miss you. Dad
