Respect, Love, and Appreciation / Jimmy D. Duvall III (Brother) I served with Kyle during his time with 2/6. I was also an assaultman with 2/6 weapons company, and I am also a Virginia native. I am the guy paying my last respects with a salute and tears streaming down both cheeks. Kyle and I did not have many conversations, but every interaction was pleasant. I lost a few of my brothers while I served my 4 years. I was with Kyle in 2003 when we went to Iraq for the invasion, I was with him training in Japan, and I was with him during the 2005 deployment to Iraq for the second time. I am now a civilian with only half of a heart because a piece of my heart was taken with every brother I lost in Iraq. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
Respect, Love and Appreciation Cpl. Jimmy D. Duvall III
Thunder Thru The Tunnels - October 13, 2007 / Peggy &. Tim Foley Mr. Brown,
My husband and I met you today at the Thunder thru the Tunnels ride at Harbor Park. We were admiring your motorcycle you had painted as a tribute to your Marine son and his comrades. So I had to find something on the internet about when & how your son was killed. And I remember reading his story in the Daily Press now and how moved to tears I was when I read about his death. At that time, our Marine son was getting ready to deploy to Iraq for his 2nd tour of duty (he was in Afghanista 2004-2005) and he expressed to us (also) his concern of the level of danger of the location he was heading to; Al Anbar Province which was a hotspot at the time. I also remember when I was reading the article how similar our sons were: close in age, our son graduated from Menchville HS in Newport News, he was in JROTC and how the Marines told him to lose some weight and then come back and see them later. So he did; he lost 65 lbs. before heading to boot camp and then lost 30 more while there. That's how bad he wanted to become a Marine also, just like Kyle. I am so sorry you lost your son in Iraq. There are no words I can say that will ease your pain other than know how much we admire your brave son and we will never forget his sacrifice to his Country & Corps.
It was a pleasure to shake your hand today. We too are proud of your son. He is one of the chosen few; once a Marine, Always a Marine!

Gone But Not Forgotten / Misty Day (sister of Fallen Marine Cpl. Rusty Washam )
The Fallen Written by Andrea Senter
They never thought when they left here their families they'd see no more No one dares to think about The high price of such a war.
If you asked them why they did it They'd say because it was right Someone has to stand up And someone has to fight
A world away they defend our cause, as we tuck our kids in bed. Some give all for all of us, And somewhere tears will be shed.
They do not ask for fame or fortune Just that we recognize We are here, free, today, Because the fallen have paid the price.
~THANK YOU KYLE~
"One of the Few and the Proud"
~Always Loved...NEVER Forgotten~

My deepest respect / Denise Sokol I do not know your pain, but I do know your pride in your son. You have much to be proud of, a courageous, determined, patriotic soul who is an example to emulate. I promise to remember Kyle and all our fallen Heroes for being someone's son, daughter, grandchild, sibling or friend as well as a member of our armed forces. I promise to pray for all of your family that is left behind that the happy memories outnumber the sad memories and that you are comforted by those moments.
Mr Bridges / Kevin Mooring (None) I am very sorry for your loss... having only known you and the story of your son for an hour i did find a tear fall down my cheek after viewing this site. your son was exceptional thats easy to see.

most sincerely and respectfully yours... Kevin

I found your beautiful, moving tribute to your Kyle while browsing the Memory Of memorials and just wanted to write to let you know how grateful I am to have the liberties Kyle and so many others have given the ultimate sacrifice to preserve.
I lost my son in a single car accident in August, 1997 at the age of 22. Had he lived, he would be 31 today, March 2, 2006.
May God grant you gentle moments and precoius memories of your loved one gone too soon.
