To the family of Sgt Pena: I came across Sgt. Pena's name while remembering my cousin
Sgt Gene Ramirez USMC, KIA - 2004, who also attended Harlandale HS. I am a USAF
veteran and I just wanted to take this time to say I'm sorry for your loss and to thank him on
your behalf for his service. I remember all my fallen brothers and sisters.
Memorial Day 2013
Son you make us very proud! Little did we know that day God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did
not go alone, for part of us went with you the day God called you home. You left us beautiful
memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always at our
side. Love you Sgt. Roger P. Pena for your ultimate sacrifice for the UNITED STATES OF
AMERICA and your loved ones.
Your DAD 5/27/2013
