SPC. Stocks Joshua
It was an honor having been able to serve with you. I can never thank you enough for all that
you taught to us. Not a day goes by the events of that day from the morning brief up to the
blast. We carried on in your memory we hearts full of sorrow. You where a father to us we all
looked up to you. I hope you where able to watch us from above. Be proud of the missions
we completed and the way we conducted ourselves. I left that country with but one regret. We
came home one less. But know your memory will never be forgotten. You are a true hero.
