Our condolences to you and your family. We lost our son, Sgt. Benjamin Smith, at 11:45am, Thursday, March 21st, 2013. There are no words. The grieving process is bearable. A little less intense over time. Wounds heal but they leave scars. We cope with the loss but it's never completely out of our minds. Certain smells, sounds, phrases, sights, places, etc. can bring our emotions to the surface again. We let them come, shed more tears and move on comforted by the belief that we will see him again in a better place. I visit the Bakersfield National Cemetery twice a week. We support the cemetery and help with holiday presentations. See attached link.

My sincere condolences to you and your family. I know your pain. I wish I could visit my son's grave, but it is in Virginia where he died. I understand certain things bringing back memories and know the feelings they bring up.
Again, my condolences to your family.

Sean Snyder (ETC2NA) was my father and Craig Snyder (MULEY51) was my grandfather. I've just gotten into the JHO community and I love reading their posts. Both have passed away, today actually being the anniversary of my father's death. They both are incredible role models and I thank you all for keeping up with them and your kind words.

Bradyldrocks welcome aboard. I remember reading about your fathers helo going down and then sometime later your grandfather posting that it was Sean. I think all of us here were touched by your father and your grandfathers passing.
I am so glad you are here. It's awesome having your family back on board
