Re: Mike Price


Unfortunately, Vincent was very closed mouthed to me about his life in Iraq.  He did not want me to worry.  I just knew he was happy and feeling fulfilled. Several of his friends from the Washington area went with him to Iraq and are still there.  I far as his other friends, some of which will be here Sat. for the memorial, I don't know.  Because they were ex military, he probably said more.  I will try to get back to you later.

I am sending a picture of Vincent.  There is no way we could have stopped the guys from going.  Vincent wanted to be part of the "mix".  He had completed his testing and was waiting to get sworn in by the Washington National Guard when this opportunity came up.  He told me he was going to the "big sandbox", period.  To make money on top of what he loved doing was icing on the cake. The United States is lucky to have such a dedicated and talented group of former elite forces to draw from in time of war.  

The Marine Corp provided an honor guard for his memorial service.  That would have been very important to Vincent.
