      I was in Germany, just having retired from active duty in ’05 when Mike died. I just found out today, 11 APR 2013. I was 13 days older than Mike and we were best friends back in the 9th grade. Lost touch shortly after I joined the army, and Mike Martinez is a hard name to sort through on the internet. Just figured it out today, and now I am not so glad that I did. I liked it better when Mike was still ‘out there’ smiling and being the great guy that he was. I will miss you brother. Hopefully, Daniel will see this and drop me a line at

      I have some pics from back in the day I would like to share.

      “The Final Roll Call”

      We Thought of you with love today
      But that is nothing new

      We thought about you yesterday
      And days before that too

      We think of you in silence
      We often speak your name

      Now all we have are memories
      And your pictures in a frame

      Your memory is our keepsake
      For which we’ll never part

      God has you in His keeping
      We have you in our heart

      May God Bless you and your loved ones for what you have done for your country
