Sgt Gene L. Lamie
He was a son, a father, a brother a uncle, a husband, but most of all
one of the most wonderful people you could ever meet. We miss him so
December 19, 2017
Gene was my uncle, I was only a toddler when he was tragically taken from this world. I only have a few
memories of him, but through pictures that my mom found on the Internet for me, and the stories she
knew about him from the short time she was married to my father, Gene's brother John, she has
always told me about what a wonderful person he was and she has always told me how brave he was,
along with being fun loving and having the God given talent to make people laugh with his wonderful
sense of humor. She has told me about his larger than life personality and how he was a great uncle to
me in the short time I was able to spend with him. She has always done her very best to keep his
memory alive for me and I thank her for that. I'm proud to have had a uncle that was a true hero in
every sense of word.

I had the honor of being Gene's Platoon Sergeant from 2001-2005. I met Gene when I was reassigned
from A Co 1-8 Cav to C Co 1-8 Cav. I quickly assigned him as my tank driver and for the next three
years we had many adventures on the most hilarious crew in the division. As we geared up for our tour
in Iraq 04-05, I moved Gene to be a Team Leader. I missed him being on my crew, but he took charge of
his new crew and performed admirably. I could always count on him to watch my back while we were
out in sector and never had to look over my shoulder to make sure he was doing the right thing. Gene
grew into the best young NCO that I have ever trained. His ability to make people want to be better
made me envy him and want to be more like him. He was also a friend. He could always be counted on
to help someone, anyone out. After these five years, I still miss him and he will never be far from mind.
I was not there when he gave his last full measure, but he has always been with me. As a friend,
colleague and inspiration, Gene will forever live in the memories of those whose life he touched. When
we reach Fiddler's Green, Gene will have a table reserved and drinks prepared and we all will sit down
and tell our stories of honor and bravery. I look forward to the time when we will be reunited.
Cobras! Rogues! RED 4, Out!

I served with Gene while assigned to C Co 1/8 Cav, from 2001-2002. I am humbled by the sacrifice that
he has made for myself and my family. I will forever honor him in my heart for his willingness to make
such a sacrifice and for his family to bear with love the loss of his sacrifice.

SGT Orellana, Max
My name is SGT Max Orellana, currently station at Fort
Hood TX with 1-8 Calvary Division, I met Gene in Fort Knox, KY on Jan
2001, and we proudly graduated together four months later as Armor
Cremen (tankers all the way) then we got assigned to C co 1-8 Cav that
summer, we became close friends in garrison and later on in OIF II in
combat. He always made us laugh and even though through rough times in close
combat, he managed to make life a lot fun and easier. I was sad when he
went back to his state of origin Georgia but very glad that he was
gaining knowledge and success in this wonderful career. I got to see his
parents today as they stop by at our company's area. I was so glad to see
them again and knowing that he is still alive for all of as in Charlie
company 1-8 CAV. I can proudly say that is my great honor and privilege
to serve next to him and being there for him in combat fighting for the
freedom that now we all Americans enjoy. He didn't sacrifice his
life in vain.! After my third deployment last year I realized that it
takes more than just sacrificing physically but spiritually and Gene is
always near by us in spirit and his soul will be remember in the last
days and the life after. May our Heavenly Father bless his family and
known that he is a better place gives me comfort that I will see him
someday again and we will just laugh and enjoy about our good times. My
pray goes to his family and his memories. We'll see you again some day
