Thank you for paying the ultimate sacrifice, your service too God Country and Corps will not be forgotten. .

We've lost a true hero! I find solace that he is in Heaven with our Heavenly Father. I just pray that his wife, children, and family will find comfort knowing that through all this, Aaron fought hard to protect us from the rampant evil that runs around. He made a difference. He knew The Lord, and that church was important to him & his family. We will see you again Aaron!

Thank you for your service. Thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends you left behind.

May you rest in peace. God bless you and your family.

Thank you for your service. It is my understanding he was a decorated scout sniper. You will be missed.
