“It is with a heavy heart and the deepest of condolences that the USINDOPACOM J34 express our sympathies to the entire Nogle family.  To us, Chris was more than a member of our division.  He was a leader, warrior, brother in arms, a friend and more so, a member of our Ohana.  As with you all, there is a void in our lives, each of our lives, that will never be filled.  He was a rock to us, in more ways than one.  We share in your loss, and grieve with you.  May God give you the continued strength to deal with this loss with such honor and dignity you all have thus far.  We all send our Aloha.”

“Chris was a great leader and friend. He was always there for anyone that needed help or to lend an ear when I needed it. You are missed brother. We love you.” Roger S
