To Jimís family I am so sorry for the loose of your son I will pray for the loose of a Hero, he was young in years and wise in age, he loved what he did, as much as we did in our time. He will be always in our hearts and mind.
I am that which others do not want to be. I chose to go where others reared and excel where they have failed. I ask for nothing from those that will not give anything anyway and reluctantly accepted the thought of eternal loneliness,... Should I Fail. I have seen the face of death, felt the stinging cold of fear, I have realized the harsh reality of just what this job is all about. I enjoyed the sweet taste of victory and love but, those were just fleeting moments. I have cried, pained and hoped but, most of all, I have lived times others would say are best forgotten... But, At least I will be able to say that I was proud of who and what I am and that in my heart and soul I will always be a "Airborne Soldier"

Anthony R. Milo, yes a hero,We have no dought his families and friends were very proud of him. We pray that the Lord give Anthony's family the strength to carry their pain of losing their pride and joy. Our son Marco who is also at Fort Lee with C Co (also an airborne rigger) was to jump on the same day. These young men and women love their contry so much that they put their lives on the line. Unfortunately,tragic things happen whether they are in our own country or overseas,Never the less True Heroes. A soldier is not only a Heroe by fighting in the battlefield,but a heroe that unconditionally and voluntarily gives his heart and soul to his country. A " Heroe IN Heaven "
