From Amanda G. 06/13/07:

SFC David Hartman was one of my sergeants over in Iraq. He wasn't just my sergeant he was my friend and like a father to me. 

I was 19 while we were there and he tried to me out of trouble which at times was a hard thing to do. We did this thing where we would punch each other in the arm and say that is how much we care, and sometimes it would really hurt. Everyone in my platoon looked up to him. 

He was a good leader, he would say that he would never ask us to do anything that he wouldn't do, and he never did. 

To his family if you read this SFC Hartman was a good man and my heart goes out to you. Since we have been home I have had a baby and I named my little one after a man who has made an impact on my life. 

I miss him and I will never forget him.
