Remembering Our Brothers

This Web site is dedicated to the memory of five unsung heroes of Operation Iraqi Freedom: Sergeant Thomas M. Gilbert, Lance Corporal Jonathan B. Thornsberry, Corporal Jacob H. Neal, Private First Class Brett A. Witteveen, and Private First Class Bufford K. Vanslyke. We remember them as fellow riflemen, friends, and patriots. We hope that you, too, will whisper their names with thanks, humility and prayer. Their fame is little, but their accomplishments are great, and their names are writ large in the halls of American valor.
