Brian,

I don't know why I thought of you after all these years. We were privates in the same company and I had just got promoted to SPC. I will never forget the call that night of a code 99, the scene and roll call the next morning. I remember the service and last call. I cried with my fellow soldiers and found it hard to go on patrol. We were so young and this was the first of many friends I lost over the years. I thought of you today and I will never truly forget you. I pray for comfort for your family and know they are in my thoughts. I am glad I knew you as a friend and will always miss you. Godspeed.
