Kevin showed me, in my brief time with him, that courage comes to even the quietest, most
pleasant person God had the wisdom to create. Kevin instilled love and courage with
whomever he touched. May God bless his family for raising such an amazing young man.

My precious nephew Kevin is missed so much. He is one of 4 boys. His strength sustained
the family during his life time and is inspiring the family since his passing.

I first learned the saying if you are free today thank a soldier; during his time in his country's
service. My husband and I feel so grateful to God for having a young man of Kevin's mind set
and moral courage in our family.

Please continue to pray for our country, leaders and our young people. My youngest nephew
Keith leaves on 9/11/12 for basic training. He has been inspired by his big brother and we are
so proud of him.

Although, I didn't know Kevin Hardin, through his mother, I've come to know him, as if he
were a member of my family. He was an exceptional young man ; left an impression on
everyone who knew him.
Through the loss of Kevin, I met his mother. She also is a special women, and an inspiration.
I was fortunate enough that she shared a very special letter with me that she received from a
young man in his unit. He spoke of Kevin's dedication to the wounded. The compassion he
showed to those he treated,even to the enemy.
After he was wounded, he endured the countless surgeries without complaint and always
had a smile for everyone. This young man will truly be missed. His sacrifice will never be
forgotten. Forever, The memory of this young man's courage , commitment and zest for life
will be a constant reminder to me of how precious life is, especially family & friends. I will
never look at life the same again. There are no words to express my sorrow at the loss of this
Soldier. My heart breaks for this mother & father who loved their son so much. May this
family find comfort in Kevin's memory and the special mark he left on this world. He will
forever live on in the hearts of so many. May God bless you and give you peace.
I want to bring attention to my favorite picture of Kevin. He is helping carry supplies to the
people of Iraq, all the children following behind him. His determination and commitment
shining in each step. An example of the kind & compassionate young man he was. We will
never forget you Kevin.
