RIP my friend. You will always be in our hearts. Your children will know what a hero you were, and I will do my best to insure your wife my friend, doesn't break from all of this. My prayers are with your entire family and friends.

My family recently lost my 21 year old Daughter to a car accident back on June 9th. She was a young Mom and loving sister. We can relate to the loss of someone so young with so much to offer. The feeling is unexplainable and relentless. This young man gave his life for something some people don't support. Please be kind and respectful on this message board because family members and friends do read these things. I am deeply sorry for your loss and hope you have plenty of family and friends to support you. God will see you through and may God Bless his soul...

This and all of these deaths are tragic! I new Nat personally, he was no hero just a shy plain person. Experiencing great personnel issues over in that hell box, which resulted in this. He will me missed by his family and friends. The rest of this country have no idea what the families endure and will for the rest of their lives. Stop knocking rattle rattle, hes only trying to awaken you to critical thought. Nothing good ever comes from war, NOTHING!

These loved one are not LOST or Fallen....they are DEAD

Death is what WAR is all about....Death, Destruction, Debt, and Dishonor.

Explain that "Peace is a wonderful thing", to the enemy. Remember 9/11, they invaded us. We are at war because of Muslim Terrorists. This war is not about money etc. America never in history has started wars for money. Do you know anything about history Japan, Germany, etc. You should be supporting the troops. They are "Fallen Heroes" they died there protecting your right of free speech, etc. Just as many other "Fallen Heroes",have done in the past.
Your a complete idiot that thinks life should be like a fairy tale land. America is the greatest country on earth due to our "Fallen Heroes".My deepest regards to the family of this "Fallen Hero".

hippy, you sound like some disconnected fat punk or was it you were to stupid,(even with the Army taking Cat IV's now to make quotas) or maybe you couldnt pass the drug screening while trying to join the armed forces recently..or was it your felony past..probably gay too..not sure of the reason they wouldnt let you in..however, that no reason for you to dishonor the military members killed, or trash their loved ones feelings in this time of great sorrow..yes you may be correct that sometimes the Armed Forces are sent for the wrong reason however they still at least got the backbone..patriotism..and honor to serve..what do you got smart ass other than memories of not being allowed to join for whatever the reason above, other than your handy dandy bong pipe..also you are also correct..they may be just dead, but at least they were willing to die for something they believed in unlike you jerk off who stands for nothing, and probably falls for anything..I would correctly predict and bet the farm the only sheep thinking you know or do is right before you poke it you disrepectful telethon poster child..enough said

Lets try reality for a change, shall we.

He is not Fallen he is DEAD

He was part of an invasion force, not a boy scout on a picnic.

A hero? Perhaps, but now he is a dead hero.

Salute and honor him all you want, it means NOTHING

58K US invaders died in Vietnam for nothing and so have 6625 in the wars

That is what happens when we try to sent up puppet governments in other peoples lands.

I suggest you visit the Vietnam War Memorial and ask yourself why it only mentions our dead and forgets to mention the 2 million or so we killed in that war alone.

A defective memorial, in Washington DC the capitol of a defective nation in the WAR BUSINESS.

So you just keep sending kids to waste their lives....on a war we have ZERO chance of winning.

Your fallen hero? Be realistic, what is heroic about INVASIONS?

What is heroic about our troops stumbling around that nation wasting their lives?

Time will defeat our forces of revenge...count on it.

Seems to me your starting a war on this pagw. God has a weird way of ahoqing you the hurt you've put on someone elsw. I'll pray for you, but it's gonna really suck for you when God says it's your turn. As for this page quit disrespecting Nate and what he died for. I knew Nate personally myself. I know how he died, and I know that he would kick anyone's ass for talking about him this way. Which thosw who claim to know him should know as well. This is a tragic loss. You're not in the shoes of family and friends, but you will be. And when you are, someone will cause more pain in you then you need. Not because they want to, but because they can. They will make your loss seem like nothing, and make you angry when you already have enough to deal with. When you know that pain, you will be sorry for every single comment you made on here. Just know I personally forgive you, and when that time comes, I will being praying for you to get stronger and things to work, despite how much worse you personally have made things on myself and many others.
