In Honor Of LCpl. Gregory A. Posey
LCpl. Gregory A. Posey was a great friend and an amazing person. He was always smiling.
Everytime I got to see him he was making the best out of the situation he was in wether it be
out all week in the field or at the paintball park (but that's just fun anyways). He never
complained. Even when they told him that he was going to Afghanistan. I think he was more
excited than anything. He was actually going to do what he was trained for. When I found out
about his passing it tore me up thinking that I will never get to see that great smile of his, but I
know that no matter what I will always remember the memories and the times we shared, and
he will always be with me.

Ii heard you, Mr. Posey, being interviewed on NPR last week.  it broke my heart to hear your
pain.  i have been praying for you.  i know time has passed since you lost your son, but i can't
imagine it being any easier now.  it was so brave and selfless of your family to travel to north
carolina to welcome home the troops, even though your brave son did not return.

i think i will remember you forever.  may you find peace in your heart and know that when it is
your time, you will once again be reunited with your son.
