U.S. Army

Jeremy was born on May 15, 1989, the day after Mothers day.  I always wonder why I had him.  You see when my first child was born, I did not want more children.  But I guess God knows best.  I always called Jeremy my miracle baby because I had a tubal ligation when my first child was just two years old.  Jeremy arrived five years later.

When Jeremy was just six months old, we started attended church.  So I always said God sent him to me to help me straighten up. 

Jeremy was always a little guy but he had a huge heart.  Anything that Jeremy did, he did the best he could.  Jeremy played a lot of sports – baseball, football and wrestling were his favorites.  He was always the pitcher, the quarterback and won all his wrestling matches. 

Jeremy joined the Army when he was in the 11th grade.  So when he graduated on May 18, 2007, he went right into the Army – June 11, 2007.  Jeremy was in the Army for almost three years.  He re-enlisted after 18 months.

Jeremy was a very likable person.  He had so many friends.  Jeremy died doing what he loved.  He loved the Army.  I truly miss him.  He gave his life on Mothers day – May 9th, 2010.

    I was in AIT with Jeremy, he was the most liked guy in our class. I remember he was so small one of the instructors carried him off and tied him up to a tree, I remember hearing him yelling ” they got me in the bushes ” in that heavy Tennesee accent. It was all in fun of course and shortly after we got him untied. I’ve always remember that story and I don’t thing I’ll forget how I laughed with him and the other guys. We got stationed at Fort Drum together but to different units in 2nd Brigade 10 Mountain division, and shortly after lost touch. I’ll never forget the day I found out he was killed, my new team chief had just introduced him self to me and said he was come from 4-31 Infantry and I asked if he knew a fister (forward observer) named Brown, he said yeah and that he had been killed in action about 6 months prior. My heart sank, I couldn’t believe it. I still have a cloth napkin that he folded when he helped me and my wife move into our house, he said he wanted to open a restaurant when he got out. He was an awesome human being and I know that heaven is a happier place with him there. Never above you never below you always beside you.
