big grin on his face whenever he was up to something, and usually was. SPC King was unstoppable, feared
nothing, and never hesitated. He is survived by his two daughters Shaelyn and Ashlin. SPC King served as a
rifleman in 3rd platoon and the driver for B203 on April 22, 2006. SPC King’s awards include the Bronze Star,
Purple Heart, Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Iraqi Campaign Medal, Global War on

For you my very dear brother. Every day you are missed and finally a part of you can rest for Bin Laden
is dead. Our hearts are forever scarred with the loss of your light but your sacrifice is not in vain. Your
girls grow more and more beautiful every day and the nieces and nephews know who you are. Our mom
misses you greatly and waits for the day she will see you again. Rest well bro, because when we join
you we are going to raise the roof.

It's hard to even express how sorry my family feels for
your loss. This was the first that I knew about this web-site and I
have to admit I was hesitant at first. I knew it would be a time to shed
tears. My husband was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam 39 years ago and
was killed. I have a son that is a great reminder of my husband. I
guess I just want you to know that your son and husband-to-be and father
will always be remembered as the years go by. Their's is the ultimate
sacrifice and we honor them always for their lives and for giving it
for all of us. We will pray for your family and the love you have for
Eric. Pease know that me sharing my loss by know way undermines the loss
of Eric, sometimes it is just a way of knowing you can go on and know
that I believe you will be together again. May God bless you all and
your lives together.
