“I would never have imagined in a million years that you had so much pain inside you. You never looked down on me, or condescended like many others I have met. Thank you for being such a great person, and Soldier. You are a great American that gave everything for your country. I will never forget you, I thank your family for raising a great man. I hope that your pain has ended and you are in a better place. I hope to see you again someday. I love you man. Rest in peace.” From a brother in arms, Juan
