Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

A Colorado 4x4.org member (Sound_Man - Curt) asked me to post this info. He works at Ft. Carson and got this info from the PAO:

Quote:
There will be a formal military memorial service at Ft Hood. If there is a service in the Springs it will be one that is set up by his parents. I have been trying to find out if there will be a funeral here (in the Springs) or if it will be at Arlington or one of the other military cemetery's but I have not had any luck with that yet.
I will post back if I get more info.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

I never met Seth, as I have actually met few of you all face to face, yet somehow I am more troubled by Seth's death than I typically have been by the frequent casuallties in Iraq and Afganistan, although each seems to strike home in its own way. Thanks to all of you who have served, and continue to. And thanks to all of you here who have the knowledge to do the legwork and figure out the best way we can share our grief, and celebrate Seth's life. If there are indeed some CS services, I for one plan to attend, whether as an anonymous "friend" or with a group from here....

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

Wow...my home PC crapped out and works been really crazy lately so I haven't been around much. This was the first thing I heard this morning. Pretty sh!tty to say the least. I was recently talking with him via PM. I have seen his XJ in Woodland Park on several occasions. After talking with him...it turns out that I've met his Grandad before. Seth was up here quite often visiting his Grandparents. His Grandad is a business owner here in town. Seth had a ton of pride in his XJ and I definitely think it would be appropriate for us to do something organized to celebrate his life.

Goodbye Seth. Thanks for your service.

Some of us will go sooner, some of us later. Seth, I will see you at the Final Muster - guard the Gates of Valhalla until then, brother...

Ryan, a few posts up there is investigation on when/where the funeral will be. If a funeral is held in Colorado Springs this week I'll take a day or two off work and head down. I have to be in California next week, but I would like to help represent at his funeral.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

I met Seth a couple times on the trails here in the Springs. He was a great guy and fun to wheel with. I am going to try to contact his family and see what they want to do and what their plans are. If they want to make it public I will share what I find out here as well as on colorado4x4.org.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

We need to remember he has two families. Maybe we should think about doing something for his unit.

Wow. That is awful to lose another soldier to this war.

Thanks to Seth and his family for their huge sacrifice on behalf of all of us.

SHOCKER! like he posted up just a few days ago, and now this. I just keep reading it over and over. MAN not another one.

His Family and friends are in our thoughts.

Re: I pray to God that I'm wrong!

There have been too many good young men and women lost in Iraq and elsewhere since and including 9/11. I don't know how much work is involved, but would holding a trail ride in their honor in Colorado named for Seth as a fundraiser of some sort be well received??
