Flowers left for Steven Downing
Downing was a friend. I was with him through Korea then the deployment and lastly at Ogden Recon. I have thought about the incident every day since it happened nearly ten years ago. My heart goes out to him and his family. I promised myself that I would get even and tried throughout the rest of that and subsequent deployments, but realized that there is no way to get even for what was done. All I can do is remember him and focus on the good memories. I write this for myself because I suddenly had the compunction to look up Downing's name today and even as I write these words they are inadequate to express the loss that occurred. If his family reads this, just know that he had friends and was happy before the end. I also knew no-one as brave and steadfast in their actions as Downing. I saw his mother at the coming home ceremony but was unable to show her my face because of my sorrow.... I regret that.
