A Great Friend, Man and Soldier

2LT Torres and I went to college together. He graduated one
semester before I did and stayed on a while as a Gold Bar Recruiter. He
eventually left for school, as did I. I never saw him again after he
left. It was not until I was deployed that I had happened to get my
hands on a copy of The Army Times that I saw his name in the front
section where they list all KIAs. I cut that piece of paper out and
carry it in my wallet still today.

Richard was a great friend, man and Soldier. He will be missed by many.

Thanks for everything that you do to support us, and remember those that
have fallen.

God Bless
