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"

fallen heroes  / Gina (passer by )
my heart goes out to the family of this fallen hero. my brother was in the army and was killed in iraq in july 2005. not a day goes by that i dont thank god for heroes like them. they are the true definition of not only a hero, but a man.
You were loved!  / Aunt Robin
We all want to make a place in this world
We all want our voices to be heard
Everyone wants a chance to be someone
We all have dreams we need to dream
Sweeter than any star you can reach
Is when you reach and find you found someone
Youll hold this worlds most priceless thing
The greatest gift this life can bring
Is when you look back and know
You were loved
Chorus:
You were loved by someone
Touched by someone
Held by someone
Meant something to someone
Loved somebody
Touched somebodys heart along the way
You can look back and say
You were loved
Yes you were loved
You can have diamonds in the hands
Have all the riches in the land
But without love you dont really have a thing
When somebody cares that your alive
When somebody trusts you with their life
Thats when you know
That you have all you need
You hold this worlds most priceless gift
The finest treasure that there is
You can look back and know
You were loved
Chorus
So many roads that you can take
Whatever way you go
Dont take that road alone
Its better you should know...
Chorus
So remember to tell that special one
You are loved...are loved...you are loved

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.

Respectfully, ltsmom

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. I can imagine how rehersed it must seem hearing people try to relate to the pain you must be feeling. I want you to know how thankfull i am for both you and your son giving up so much so i can continue to live my life, my life.... that i admit in many ways i often take for granted how easy it is. my everyday problems and concerns are made simple by your son and the soilders like him. I can only hope and pray that this great campain for freedom and peace is and will continue to be worth your son's sacrifice. 

most sincerely and respectfully yours...
Kevin

Just passing by  / Sara Duncan

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. 

Thank You  / Johnny Satterthwaite   Read >>

There is no greater love than that of a parent for their child. a most terrible heart break when we lose our child.

From our home to yours we send you love and compassion and tell you you are in our thoughts and Kyle will be forever remembered by many.

We too have lost our boys one at age 21 and the other at age 22. We remain deeply saddened and forever changed. Our greif cannot be the same, we know not how you feel, no one will ever know your pain it is imeasurable, for eternities will will mourn.

I pray you take some comfort in your Family and friends and they help you through this very difficult time in your life. May god bless you and comfort you when you feel sorrow.

Remembering you and your son,

Marty

HERO IN MY HEART.  / Lisa Drew   Read >>
HERO IN MY HEART.  / Lisa Drew
Few in life have the opportunity  to become a hero... and even fewer volunteer themselves into a position to become one.
I'm sat here in England it's now 5am, and for the last 2 hours I've sat here reading the most amazing, heart felt, honest tribute to an incredible young man... such determination, drive and conquering strength!
I'm 27 this June and until this night, I never knew it possible for me to cry so hard and feel the exact same myriad of emotions...anger, nausea, emptiness & ask the same questions... why would this, how could this happen? for someone I have never known or met.
My own experience of loss, why I recognised the feelings I have for you and your son all came from just one week out of my whole life it was June 2003...
fri 13th, I lost my great aunt of 96,
sat14th (also my birthday) and unbelievably the very same day her parents my  good friend's were due to marry we lost lilly  3yrs  their daughter to meningitis, completely out the blue with only 4 hours warning.
And just when I felt I had no heart left to break ..on fri 20th June I received the worst most shattering call I hope I ever do.... My dear best friends rang me having just lost her precious 1 month old in his sleep.. I totally lost it, I was at work and ran screaming into the reception area to a friend who worked there at the top of my voice WHY?...WHY? I crumbled to the floor and must have sat there for an hour asking that one question... why?
Being I'm normally so calm ...it's wasn't like me at all . but my heart had just had enough and I believe to this day if I had not reacted so outwardly ...I'd most prob be consumed by depression, anger & bitterness at something I could not stop or do anything about. 
It broke my heart to hear of your pain, crying after you shower,collapsing with such disbelief and utter grief.
I'm 27, I most def don't have the answer on how to cope... but I do say if you haven't already .... go find a quiet hillside and scream with all the pain you have inside .... scream Kyle's name...scream the question ..why? and see if for just a minute it eases the anger and leaves behind in it's place a magical minute extra to remember something else precious, a memory... something that makes you smile about Kyle.
I'm not personally religious but it's my heart felt belief that its the moments you smile ...the moments you spend laughing about his questionable dress sense, his tendency to feed the fish rather than catch them! that you'll feel the glow of him smiling back at you!

I hope this offers you some comfort if not now in the future.. it's now 6am! and I'm honoured to have learnt about Kyle and he's taught me about myself ... his memory lives on and shall always.

All my love to you all...
Lisa uk
