    I do not know you, but, I believe you knew my son from tech school in Ft. Huachuca, AZ. I am so sad that you have passed. I am so proud of what you have done for our country. My your soul be blessed and my thanks and prayers go out to your family.

    As it came to be, I stumbled across this website today. It truly saddens my heart to look at the faces of these mothers and daughters knowing the collateral damage left behind due to the useless tragedy of war. Not that any man killed in combat is any less absurd, but a child and/or a father should never have to lose a mother and/or a daughter in this manner. As an American, I do honor and hold with the highest regard your service, bravery and sacrifice. As with every American, my family and I are forever indebted to you and your family.

    From one American family,
    You are not forgotten

    Dear SPC Hinckley,

    It has been 7 months since you changed my life. I am too is a veteran of OIF/ OND and was there to witness your coming to the hospital. There is not a single day I do not think of that night. You have been a motivation to my career and on – going plans in the future to save soldiers. You are a true HERO. Just know that you are never forgotten. Your death has left a scar in my heart that I shall live with for the rest of my life.
