Arcadia, California

April 22, 2006

Age Military Rank Unit/Location
23 Army Sgt

1st Squadron, 67th Armored Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division

Fort Hood, Texas

Killed outside of Forward Operating base Iskandiriyah, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated.  They where killed on impact and their HMMWV set on fire.

 

Kyle is my hero. His memory and sacrifice must be honored. 

Kyle was proud to serve, and knew he may pay the ultimate price for freedom. He joins legions of other courageous veterans who also gave their lives in order to liberate and protect others.

It is important to remember that he gave his life, he did not lose it. He reenlisted in the Army in July 2004, with full knowledge that he would likely be deployed to Iraq.

Kyle sacrificed his life for a noble cause. I support the Army’s efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and even though I have lost my son, I will continue to support the U.S. Military as well as Veterans organizations. 

We are blessed to live in a country that is free. We must never forget that we only have these freedoms because of patriotic, brave young men like my son Kyle - my hero.
