To Jason's Family: I served with Jason at NASKEF and ran into him a few other places, and he was and is still a huge influence in my life. He was the nicest, most sincere, honest, and funny people I had ever met. I strive to carry the pride, humility, confidence, and sincerity that Jason made look so easy. My boy is a year old now, and he will know about my friend, and my brother in arms. My tattoos reflect his service and sacrafice, and he will live on in the memories of my family. -Here's to dayroom toga parties, and friends in low places HOOAH-

To the Hicks family, Please know that just as your loved one will forever remain in your hearts and minds, his sacrifice and that of your family, will remain with the people he died defending. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for his bravery and selflessness, or the heartache we feel for your loss. God grant you the peace that passes all understanding.

You are remembered and respected. Thank you Staff Sgt Hicks!

If this person can stand in battle to ensure my freedom, then I will stand in grief with his/her family to honor him/her. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given even if for too short a time.

My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guest book for the rest of my life, but I promised Le Ron A. Wilson (a dear friend KIA 7/6/07, 18yrs old) that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.

Hi. My name is Danielle and I am a student here in North Carolina. It was an assignment for my class to look up obituaries for a project and I noticed that Jason died while on the flight that crashed. I just wanted to say that I am sorry for your loss and I am very appreciative for the things that your son/brother/husband/friend did for our country. Don't think of this as a time of loss. Think of it as a time for gain because you have gained an angel.
