“He always wanted a little bit more. He expanded from just the engines to learning the aircraft. He got that knowledge, he got that step down, and from beyond that he wanted to become crew member. That was one of his goals,” Barger said. Eshbaugh, 43, of Norman, Okla., was killed Sept. 18 when his helicopter went down near Tallil. Eshbaugh was assigned to Lexington, Okla.

Originally from Chicago, Eshbaugh first enlisted in the Air Force in 1982, where he served for 10 years. After a six-year break, he joined the Oklahoma Army National Guard in 1998, staying until 2000. Daniel re-enlisted in the Guard in 2002.

  Danny, Although I just met you for the first time at greatgrandpa'a funeral, I really felt like I have known you my entire life. I was so looking forward to you being at the next family reunion next year and getting to know you and the rest of your family better. You have a great sense of humor and I am proud and honored to have had you serve this great country of ours. Your family is in my prayers, say hello to Uncle Dan and great grandpa for me. Love you. You will be missed so much in this Eshbaugh family, although distances seem to keep us apart, we're always there for one another. It's a bond that can't be broken.

Adam D. Jones

Happy Birthday, Adam. You are missed so much every minute of everyday! XOXO ~143~ You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. Love always, Tammy

Laurie Cobb

She was my 3rd and 5th grade teacher. Today I'm 32 and still think about her. She was the best teacher ever. From her hair children stories to her bubbly happiness and kindness she spread. I'll never forget her. She was the teacher who had lunch with the kids in her classroom so everyone had someone to be with. She made my school experience amazing. I will never forget her.. I love you Mrs. Cobb. Sincerely, Forever in my thoughts, Alyssa (Viau) Capone

Larry E Polley Jr

SPC Polley died almost two decades ago so I don't know if this message will be seen. In honor of Memorial Day, my agency hands out cards with names of those who have fallen. This year, 2023, I received the card for SPC Polley and was inspired to look up more on him. I am thankful for his service and sacrifice. My condolences to his family. He is not forgotten.

Paul C. Holter III

Miss you brother

Alex D Gonzalez

Love you and miss you always. Since you been gone it has been hard for everyone. I know you loved what you did, and I want to thank you for our freedom. If I can have you back home and safe living your life man everything would be different. No matter how much money they would offer me I would rather have you alive and home. Money comes and go so it's not worth losing you.

Christopher D Young

hello my name is Jesus Vega I would like to give my condolences to Christopher's family and friends, I served with him in Iraq and slept in the same quarters. I have many fond memories of him. I have never forgotten his sacrifice. I would like to share that the greatest memory I had of Chris is that he would speak highly of his mom and how much she meant to him. Chris was a strong minded person and looked out for other. He was kind and friendly the he made friends with everyone. Chris was truly a great man! I sincerely apologize for not sharing sooner. but would like to express that Chris's memory will never be forgotten! though he is not with us he will always be in spirit! If this message gets to Christopher's mother I she could know she raised a great man and for that I thank you.

James David Parker

I knew James David Parker as "Dave" when he lived in Solon Ohio. We met when I moved into town from out of state. He and his group of friends were a year or two older than me. Dave was a bright beacon of hope and joy to me. I was an unsure young man in a strange place. Dave introduced me to many people and ensured his friends always saved me a seat in the lunchroom. I have fond memories of him and his friends during that time. I doubt so many people would have been as wonderful toward me without Dave's incredible kindness. I've never forgotten his kindness. I hope to be able to pay it forward someday.

Tyler O. Griffin
