Cpt Pearson was husband's company commander.. He was the sweetest most sincere man with the kindest smile and the biggest heart. He loved not only his family but his soldiers as well. He reenlisted my husband last year and was so proud of my husband for going to school to better himself so that he as well can become an officer. Cpt Pearson was not only an outstanding Commander but was a father and husband as well.... We will all greatly miss him.../ Spc Tucker was not only a buddy of mine but was an outstanding Soldier as well... I will always remember his goofy smile and laugh and all the times I watched him and his good friend Carpenter goofing around in the barracks... He as well will never be forgotten in our hearts... We all miss you Tucker!
