Wil, it is now 8 years and it still feels like we were both standing in the Shrine Club toasting
drinks to one another before you were to leave to go back to Afghanistan. The years may
pass, but it doesn't get any easier. You are missed today, like you were missed 8 years ago.
The pain has never left either, and sometimes the smallest things remind me of you
instantly. That is when I know that you are watching over us all. Wil you were a true Hero in
every form of the word. I am so glad to call you my Brother. Know that all of your friends
and family still talk about you when we gather and still remember you very fondly. I hope
you can feel that as you watch over us all. Love you Hermano....... Benny

Wil you like a brother who always did everything better then everyone and the guy who had
everything. You were truly blessed in life and I know you would not have wanted anything
to happen to anyone else if you could just take the death. You were always so selfless and
giving of yourself for others. I made the mistake of not drinking with you before you went
back, and I will truly regret it my whole life. Brother I will always think of you my entire life
and regret what I lost when you were taken from this earth. The great ones always get taken

I remember your wonderful service and professional demeanor. Your snappy salutes always
shined amongst the crowd at Camp Eggers. I also remember the day you left us. It was one
of the most traumatic moments of my life. We all grieved for you and your family. I was just
days from going home myself. In fact, I remember when you and I went home together on
the same flights for Christmas R&R. You served as my chock leader...and you guided me
home safely to my family. I wish I could have done the same for you...it's just not fair. You
were the best of all of us, and yet you're the one who had to fall. I've coped with a lot since
coming home, but I don't think I'll ever get over the loss of my fellow combattants. I left the
military, I suffered from PTSD, I got a divorce, and yet I still roam this earth in decent
shape...all of which I'm sure you would trade to be in my shoes. I didn't know you on a
personal level, but that doesn't seem to matter. You were my fri!
end, my brother, my responsibility, through combat service. So...I miss you and I always will
MSG Sabalu. I'm sorry.

My dear friend Wilberto and family are always in our
hearts and prays. I can't forget the memories that our families have
shared from Leavenworth to Panama and back. During this Patriots Day the
memories come rushing back and a mixture of tears and smiles cross my
face. Amy, you and the kids are alway in our thoughts.

In Honor Of MSG Sabalu
I had the great honor to work with MSG Sabalu and also
lived in the same house in Kabul, Afghanistan.
On 6 May we went to work together as we did many times. My last words
to him, was "nos vemos hoy por la noche en la casa" see you tonight at
the house. Of course that never happened.
He was a great soldier, friend...he would always make us smile.. I
would always get on him for being for Puerto Rico and I from Uruguay.
You are very missed! We did not forget you at Camp Eggers...nor when we
were blessed and came home.
