    Jeannette Dunn is someone that may have appeared to be an odd ball at first sight but it was only because she truly was a high-caliber, quality person. I remember moving in my first night (a Friday) at 27th MSB, at 1st Cav’s Ft. Hood, she was the only one who extended a *genuine* offer of help to move some of my things into my room.

    Upon our return from Iraq’s OIF II, Jeannette was my roommate. Always kept to herself and extremely considerate (almost to a fault). She was kind, caring, and never wanted to burden others with anything she may have been carrying.

    God bless her for we all should have the right to exit the world, without stigma, on our own terms if we think things are unbearable. If anything, seek to understand your fellow beings. You never know what they may be going through.
