The troops in Afghanistan are very much trying to help the people in Afrghanistan as much as they can and they give a great deal of themselves to do so. The children are very neglected and are in need of medical treatment. They have few clothes, shelter or food and our troops try very hard to seek those most in need out so that they can help them. God Bless them all. When the troops run out of supplies and money to give what they have, they ask their family back home to send certain items from shoes, blankets, etc. in order to give these children and their families some comfort in a battle zone. They are good people and God Bless each one of them, they are good Americans.

Actually, GARY REPP is a soldier. Yet again another writer who has excluded the FACTS. He has served his community, state and this great country in many positions until he was falsely accused of a crime he didn't commit. The TRUTH is that he was proven INNOCENT by the legal court process with a JURY of his "peers" seeing ALL of the evidence, not just pieces or rumors. Perhaps he could have been a better husband by being at home more instead of working as much as he did to provide a nice house and food for his family, but everyone has faults. Bottom line is that his DID NOT kill his wife and he is a HERO for serving our country as he has. Are you a veteran??? I am.

Gary brought a lot of help to his family by shooting his wife in the head. He needs to pay for his crimes, but he fooled everyone with kissing up and pretending he is a good person. He gives soldiers a bad name!!!!! I am disgusted that you would present him as a hero, it is the ultimate insult to our country!
thank u for defending my family

I've known Gary for the last twelve years and he is a stand up guy who is passionate about his service to his country and passionate about his family and friends. He stood by Kerry even when she was pregnant with another man's child. There may have been some heated arguments between the two but there was good reason for those arguments due to Kerry's unfaithfulness. Gary never charmed his way out of any charges...He was found NOT GUILTY. Why did the 911 dispatcher ignore basic protocol when there was a call from Gary and Kerry's home the day Kerry was murdered - The dispatcher sent no one to check the house nor did she call the number back after the 911 hang up. What about the fact that Kerry had been cheating on Gary with a police officer? Was he ever interviewed? It is easier for Kerry's family to blame the nearest scapegoat and remain bitter than to seek out true answers. As for "Anonymous in Beaverton", Gary always portrayed you as very intelligent, educated and independent so not sure how you could be manipulated into allowing yourself to stay in a bad relationship for over three years or are you just bitter because he would not commit to marriage right when you wanted to get married? There are two sides to every story, people.

I did not and would not write one bad thing about Gary Repp. He was always a gentle man, and very good to me. He bought me lots of presents, a beautiful ring, a beautiful fridge. He bought me two dirt bikes and taught me how to ride. I used to ride pretty hard because I am a daredevil, so when I crashed I got some bruises, causing my friend Carol to think that it was him, when it of course wasn't, he wouldn't hurt a fly. Carol just had a bad opinion of men because she was abused as a child, so I think she made assumptions because of that that were very very inaccurate. He was a very good boyfriend, he bought me furniture and lots of gifts. I really would have liked to have him instead of the gifts, and I wish we could have stayed together, but he gave them to me to try to make me happy, and that is very giving. He is very busy saving the world overseas. It makes me sad because I would have liked to have a normal life like we planned, but he is dedicated to saving the world, and he is a great military man and a hero. That is his destiny, and he loves and respects his country. I may have gotten left behind, but I have ultimate respect for the job he and the other soldiers do - because freedom isn't free. Good luck over there boys

By the way,#7 was my friend that wrote that shit not me. She is a great person, but doesn't know him, and she just saw me after my dirt bike crash and assumed the worst because of her traumatic past. Gary is a gentleman and a soldier and a true American hero, so don't let anyone tell you different!

Wow, so much hatred. I know the Johnson Family and some of the Repp Family and it is a tragedy that struck both sides. Sadly, the Johnson’s are not allowing for an environment of support for Colby to heal and set a foundation for him to be successful in the future in spite of all that he has been through. I have seen how the Repp’s support and keep Drake involved in life, this is the right way. A child shouldn’t go through such traumatic experiences then have to be continually reminded by others of the loss. Please help these two children heal and remember their Mother and Fathers loving them. The rhetoric is being perpetuated by adults not these two children. Not matter your opinion of Gary, for the sake of the boys, please stop the hatred.

Anonymous or his "ex" as you alledgely claimed??? Do you really even know this man? Have you ever worked with this man? Have you ever met this man? He has served his country honorably and his state, that he worked for. He was proven innocent. He has not abused any of his girlfriends and most stood up for him during this atrocity. He has always been a man of his word and works very hard. He loved his family and his boys. He did so much for his “ex-girlfriend” that you refer too. Has she ever told you about the vacations, motorcycles, fixing her car, jewelry, paying her bills, meeting his friends, peers, etc.??? I doubt it. He broke up with her and now she is angry about it. Ask her about her ex-Coast Guard boyfriend and why he filed a Restraining Order against her? I don’t think you are being told the truth by Sarah. I have met her and he always treated her well and I seriously doubt it was any different when we weren’t around. He bought her flowers, sent post cards from abroad and also holiday cards for the special occasions.

He has earned his right to be a free man in more ways then one. Why should he be discharged from the service, when he works, pays taxes, continues to serve his nation, promotes patriotism in every aspect and etc.? He was proven innocent in our courts! He didn't "charm" them, the facts proved he didn't do it. Is that not enough for you? Leave him alone and get on with your life.

This was a total mistake - Gary Repp is a fine soldier. I am paying to have this statement made in anger revoked. He is a fine soldier and this was said out of anger not truth. So sorry

Gary and I went to college together. He was a fantastic guy. Over the three years that we saw each other on a daily basis I never saw anything remotely negative about him.

He was a fine Man and soldier back then and I have no reason to doubt he continues to be.

When I heard of this website I am not sure why I was inclined to come look but it seriously made me sad. Gary is this...Gary is that, who honestly cares? Honestly who cares which comment above is from his exgf or not? Who cares if Gary is a fine soldier or not. Kerry was my best friend and I miss her every day but it does not consume my life anymore. What happend to her almost ruined my life but I realized I had to move past it all. I have my own opinion on what I think happend and whether people think Gary murdered her or not is not what matters. What matters is that this amazing, beautiful mother of two with another baby on the way was taken from this world entirely too soon. If all of these people say that Gary didnt murder her than why are they not demanding the case be reopened to find the real killer.. If Gary didnt do it.. then who did? I just dont understand why people cant just let Kerry rest in peace since there was no justice for her tragety.

Amy and all others in this post, Yes I know most of you (or of you) and knew Gary too, but I agree it is time to move on. This tragedy affected many of us. We must remember Kerry for Kerry and her kids and her family. It is about time that someone says it. Thanks Amy and glad you said it, who cares what some “ex-girlfriend” of his has to say and really who really cares about Gary now anyway. If people have something to say about him, then start a blog or post about him and quit clinging onto these other articles. I would further say that we must let Gary move on too because he has a life to live with his family and friends to. He is obviously trying to continue to get on with a life away from him former hometown and has struggled from what I know to have a normal life like the rest of us have. Give him that. He went clearly through hell, was accused, and AQUITTED, so everyone needs to quit insinuated that he did it because the jury saw everything in the case not just the local opinions. He still speaks very kindly and fondly about her. The police and others ran him out of town and the DA closed the case and called it done. It doesn’t matter to them anymore no matter what he says or asked of them to continue to prove himself innocent. Let’s put this drama to rest, remember good things about Kerry and live our lives as good people not as rumor mongers.

gary was my probation officer in 2001 and my husband and i were split up because of domestic violence - there was a mandatory no contact order in place because of that. ironically, gary went to high school with my husband. when i told gary who i was and what my situation was with d/v, he was very sincere and compassionate to me even though he knew my husband. i never knew kerry but he had mentioned her occasionally (re: things like it was "movie night" for them or he was going to take her out to dinner, etc.. never was there a negative thing said) he had even made a comment one time that no matter how mad u get towards your wife/husband, theres NO excuse for abuse. i always liked him, i just have to go with my gut and say i dont think he is guilty but clearly there is no winner in this horrible and tragic situation. the children are the true victims in this!!
