As you know buddy four years ago today you and I dawned our berets for the first time as we graduated Basic Training. It blows my mind to think that it has been four years since the day my father bought you those boots. It blows my mind even more thinking that this summer will be two years that you have been gone. You have changed the way I see the world brother and I will never be the same for that. I made you a promise four years ago that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. You are the reason I work in the area that I work in. You are the reason I am the man I am. We promised each other that we would change the world and you held up your end, now it is my turn brother. Keep your hand on my shoulder and guide me. You are gone but never forgotten. Love you buddy. SPARTANS!
