To the Brother and Cousin in Arms I never got know. We were from the same home-town, went to the same high school, joined the same Army, served in combat in Iraq, and shared the same first name, but were a little of a decade apart. You are a true hero and will not be forgotten. To be absent in this body is to be present with the Lord.

I was in the 2nd in WWII and my wife and I send our deep sympathy to you. We would like to attend his services. Our email is (Email Link) and our phone # is 817.282.3632. Our thoughts are with you. Tom & Barbara Quigley
You don't know me and neither do I, but we share the same first name. On May 26 2012, I will go to New York for the first time in my life.
The 9/11, I was 11 years old and i was at school, they brought us in the gym where there were two Tv's broadcasting the news. I was so sad.When I saw, Ben Laden dead or alive on a cover page, I told my mom, I wish he died. I wish none of this ever happened.
When i'll go to New York, I will visite Ground Zero, and i'll put a rose near your name (N-74).
Rest In PeaceJessica Willett Chapignac (French Canadian)
I went to Riverside Polytechnic High School with Clayton. He was such a heart throb. I am not sure if he knew my name but we all knew his. Even as a teenager Clayton showed leadership and great promise. I am so sad to know he is gone. He was really a good person. We all miss him.

I'm going to speak in front of Senator Patty Murray next week David. No one should be treated or mistreated the way you were or the way that many of our returning heroes are being treated. Please know that you ARE a hero to so many and will never be anything but a true American hero!
Also, please continue to look after your folks and sister. Even with your dad not working, they need your daily love and support. 5.5 years later, less than a month before 6 years, I still love and miss you. Thank you for being my hero.G

Christine, I still get tears thinking about you, you are so missed....But now when I visit where you fell I can wipe a tear from my eye and touch it to the water that flows under you name, and I know you are feeling the love, and that gives me some peace.
I miss you so much Robbie. Some days it doesn't seem like its real. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you though. I love you so so much. You were the best big brother a girl could have. You were always my hero and still are!
I found a picture of Lee's dog tags via Hawaii Army Weekly. I want to send my heart felt condolences and thanks to Lee's family and friends for the ultimate sacrifice that has been made. God Bless America! (More Info)
Tara, you were and will be my battle buddy. I miss your laugh, your sense of humor, your loyalty and your presence. In life it is rare to come across true friends and miss that about you. We had a great time in Korea and we remained in touch until your deployment. I never would have thought I would never see or hear from you again. God has made his choice and called you home, rest and please be waiting for me at the gates. Luv ya sis.
Praying for Peace in the Valley for this family. Captain Nicholas S Whitlock touched many lives that are anonymous to his family & friends because he touched everyone he met in his daily walk of life with his bright smile & joy of life. Many are saddened and brokenhearted over the loss of Nick all around the World. I pray each person that loved him find a special way to honor him by improving their own life someway. Aspire to be like him. What a better world we would have. Never forgotten Captain Nicholas Whitlock. We love you.
You all were such a testimony to all people within viewing distance, with your steadfast faith and grace. May the Lord continue to hold you in the palm of His hands. In remember Capt. Nicholas Whitlock, I thank the Lord for your life, Nick. Faith and Family and Friends-you were true to all and touched thousands of lives. Thank you for your genuine love for our country and your ultimate service. As you took your ultimate flight homeward, we stand and gaze upward and say, "See you soon, Airman. Job well done!"I promise to keep your loved ones in my prayers!
I will never forget you or the sacrifice you made for our country. The pain is still as fresh as the day it was announced. Reality is so hard to accept and still hasn't set in. Missing you dearly my friend.
Condolences to Capt Whitlock's family and friends. Our hearts and prayers go out to you! We thank Nick for his service to our country. My husband is riding today with the Patriot Guard for Nick as he is taken to the Funeral Home in Newnan. It is an honor for the PGR to see Nick properly escorted home !! RIP
I wanted to thank you for giving your life for my freedom. Without our troops this country wouldnt be free. As an airman's wife, I give you all of my respect and beyond thankful for you! Your family and friends are in my thoughts. Thank you again Airman and may you rest in peace. Huaaaaaaaaa :)
You left your home town and your best life, and went to a faraway place to bring freedom to those who did not know you and didn't appreciate you. Just like Jesus.We praise the Lord for your total and complete sacrifice. Now you and Jesus, together. Thank You Jesus for Captain Nicholas Whitlock's sacrifice - You were his best example.
Thank you for serving our country. It is people like you who make it possible for us to be free and live the American Dream. May Gods grace and love forever hold you close. I also pray that God watches over your family during this time of sadness and brings them comfort knowing that you are with him.
