Heaven needed a hero- somebody just like you. Brave enough to stand up for what you believed in .You made the ultimate sacrifice and I know now you wouldn’t have had it any other way. I understand now why you did what you did. I couldn’t have asked for a better father and role model. You promised your platoon you would bring them home and you did just that. You are in their thoughts and there is never a day that I don’t miss you and love you. I carry on your name with pride and hope that I have made you proud. Your story and sacrifice will never be forgotten.
