    Carlos and I grew up together in Orem he was 3 years older than me and I couldn't have asked for a better role model. I moved away from Utah to nj then to tx and today I recieved the text message I never hoped to see. Some say that when they have heard the news of someones death that it's like being hit with a ton of bricks. Well believe me when I say that this is far worse. I can remember it like yesterday that Carlos and a few of our close friends would waste away summer days at one anothers house. I vividly remember one summer day we found an shopping cart and rode it down the hill by our houses, and Carlos crashed over the curb and got up like it was nothing. I remember calling him superman. Nothing could bring him down. He was invincible. Though I have written a lot I'm find myself at a loss for words. Imdeeply sadened and overcome with grief. I miss u buddy

    We are indebted to you and your fellow brothers and sisters of the armed forces. You have given the ultimate gift to us, and we thank you. Rest in peace, and may God send his peace and love to your family at this time.

    Years ago I joined the Marines for the same reason. This man is the reason why others, who choose not to fight for freedom, have free rights to talk bad about the military. If it weren't for this man they wouldn't have that right. There is nothing more elite than a Marine. Thanks for what you gave. Thanks to your family for raising a son with such high values and love for this country. We love our Marine Corp.
