I have been wearing Drew’s memorial band now for 15 years. We are at The Citadel together at the same time, in the sccja 416 class together and graduated. Drew gave the prayer at graduation. We went to work at agencies only 30 minuets apart. His life was influential to all that knew him. His sacrifice will never be forgotten. Love you brother.
