You are pretty much personally responsible for thousands of hours lost be grown men sitting in front of a computer waiting on a rebuttal from a previous post. Longing for someone to leave themselves open and then joining in with others to dog pile some sorry fuck (probably a 2/75er) for leaving his flank exposed. The outlet to reconnect to sad miserable days and experiences that when they happened made us all want to go home and punch our parents for fucking and conceiving us in the first place. Yet as we sit in a world spawned by you we would eagerly chop of a finger just to go pack to smell the JP-5 prior to loading, 30 seconds.

R.I.P. Team Mate

Post by usmc0369 »

I was Petes Team Leader when we were with Cochise Consultancy, OIF III.

I was sorting out my Iraq pics and ran across one of him, I never had his email so I Googled him and saw the news of his passing.

The link goes to some of the pictures I have of Pete, during range time and when we bounced a IED placement team October 2005.

Thanks for sharing the photo, Gunny. Hell, if Pete wasn't in it, I'd almost swear that was a BP pic along the Mexican border, somewhere near El Paso. What a desolate place. Nice shot of Pete, though.

Pete, I think about you often bro, and all the good times we had...and that ridiculous laugh of yours!

That first "bunker" the store was in was great. So was the Metallica concert where I got thrown out for peeing behind the bleachers!

Miss you bro.

This is sad news, although I know Pete had a long and difficult struggle. There must have been some kind of relief for him at the end given what he suffered, but that is of course overshadowed by the tremendous tragedy of a man who left us far too early in his life.

My thoughts are with his daughter and his wife. May they be strengthened by the magnitude of his spirit in this long fight against a terrible sickness.

Pete, you and this site in those early days were instrumental in guiding me onto my current path. I also owe you for many of the friends I now count from among its members.

See you at the big RP in the sky buddy.

Rest in Peace

What a smart and gifted man you were here on this earth. Your love of nature and appreciation for that which money never buys. What great insight on life and what a talented writer you were. Your empathy and hope for those oppressed, without freedom and opportunity was unequivocal...

Your "spirit" has touched many lives in such a meaningful way. How lucky we are having known you, if even for just a while.. How lucky 'you are' to have left such a legacy.
I pray for your daughter & your wife, someway, someday their hearts can begin to heal. I know God will keep you close to them...

I love this bit of poetry or should I call it prose Pete? I think it fitting for you and yours...

Until the day we all meet...

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life. ~John Muir
