Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

I salute you Sir, for your service and the sacrifice you gave, your life. So many years have passed, yet we still remember our Hero's. You have stood watch as many an Officer have stepped up to the gates of Heaven to welcome them to their eternal rest. One of which was Michael P. Gordon, EOW 08-08-04, That's why I came here Sir. To show respect for every office with the last name of Gordon. You were the first one with the Gordon name, Michael the last. May you both rest with Honor and love in the arms of God. You are not forgotten Sir. With loving remembrence of you. Mother-in-law of Sgt. Jeffrey t. Hewitt EOW 04-04-04 Asheville, North Carolina

There is nobody alive that remembers you but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate the sacrifice you made. You died nearly a hundred years prior to my birth, but we're brothers...and some day I will get to shake your hand. Rest easy, brother...thank you for who you were.
