I can't believe it's already been 9 years since that tragic phonecall I received. There is not a day that I don't think about you, I miss you so much. You will always live on in my heart. I always remember how much fun it was talking to you and having Charles interupt us to get on the phone and give me crap. He was a great guy too, and I know you guys are together now still doing what you can to have fun. Someday we'll be together again and we'll pick up right where we left off, you were truly one of my very best friends and I'm so glad I got to have you in my life. I will always love you.

I was the permanent duty First Sergeant assigned to Al Jaber the day Airmen Schroeder and Campbell passed away. It was a very difficult day and even weeks that followed. To lose not just one but two troopers in one day is devestating. They put themselves in harms way and paid the ultimate price so we could be free. That must never be forgotten. God Bless his family and friends.

Airman Schroeder,
I would like to say thank you to you and your partner for your service and sacrifice for our Country.

I was deployed to Al Jaber Air Base when this tragedy happened. It was a very sad day and one that those of us who were there will never forget. Airman Schroeder and Airman Campbell answered the call of duty and selflessly went into in harms way. They left the comforts of home and traveled to a far away land to preserve our precious freedom. It is because of them and others like them that we live in such a great country. I think of them from time to time and always will. God Bless Them.

On this date that dreadful day years ago you made the ultimate sacrifice. I too was a K9 handler with the SP's from 1995-1999 and then continued my career in LE in the civilain sector. God speed my freinds and remember you will never be forgotten.

God bless you, A1C Schroeder. You and Amn. Campbell are heros!

I was TDY to Al Jaber and working the morning that Dave and Chuck were killed. That was the darkest day of my 7 year career thus far. They were both great kids that everyone liked. You guys are sorely missed by all defenders. We will all join you again someday.
