From Keith Smidt 10/24/07:

He served with me on our first tour in Iraq 2004-2005 with 2-8 Cav 1st Cavalry Division.
I had seen him while I was on leave before he deployed and I am glad I got to talk to him, that moment will always be with me forever. He will truly be missed but I know he loved being a soldier and was proud to serve his country.
