From Shan Smith 11/23/05:

I have been where our fallen heroes have and i was one of the lucky ones to come back home. I had known Spc Craig Ivory for a while and to say I was devastated to lose such a close friend is the understatement of the year. He was a great friend and a great brother in my extended family. Doc I miss you so much and would give anything to have you back with us brother

From Patricia Scott 11/22/05:

I just want to say thank you to those who serve. I am an Army spouse. And I know the sacrifice that these solders have made for this country. I pray for the ones still in harms way and thank the ones that have fallen or have made it home safely. My prayers are with your families. God Bless each and every one of our Solders that serve this nation.
