In Memory of PFC John Steenge

I never wanted to salute a friend's boots, but I did so tonight. I don't have much to say about it right now. Things have been crazy since I touched ground on civilized soil and they may just start slowing down soon. Crazy when your friend dies. Been a hell of a year.

Bullets nor bombs can kill a Gladiator.

You and your friend are in my thoughts. May this coming New Year bring joys to replace this year's sorrows.

Dean, I hope all is well with you. I could never fathom it all, but know you're in my thoughts to replace 2005 with something great in 2006.

Just stumbled on this Dorman, and months later I am still beside myself. He was my comrade for 12 horrible months in that hell hole...my brother and he will always be missed. Hays

its weird to find this page 5 months after the fact... i think about john everyday, he was the one person i fell in love with and i spent a few good years with him... i really felt it in the first line and i dont know if youll even get this comment but i wanted you to know that it ment something to me... and i was so happy to see his goofy face... and for the first time, thinking/seeing him didnt make me cry, i smiled and i thank you for that.

I can't believe it's been three years since his passing. It still feels like it was yesterday that it happened. I am so grateful to have known him and I still miss him very much.
