As we grieve the loss of our son Nathan Aguirre, KIA 10-22-06, our heart aches for the West Family. We only new Bobby because of our son. They were roommates, best friends in Baghdad. Nathaniel took it really hard when Bobby was killed and my son, a combat medic had the worst two days in his life after he received the news. In August when he came home for his 2weeks R & R. He brought home 6 black bracelets etched with Bobby's info. I have worn it ever since and so does my daughter Melissa. What I would like to share with you is the love my son had for Bobby. Nathan created a video in honor of Bobby on his myspace. It is a perfect video but caution you that it was made with love and respect for his best friend/roommate.
My prayers are with your family and please continue to keep our soldiers, their families and our leaders in your prayers.
