"Josh is probably one of the best kids ... one of the politest kids, one of the nicest boys I have ever known. And I don't say that just because I'm his grandfather," This statement says it all...he will be missed

I worked with Josh while he was in high school. One of the best all around young men I have ever worked with. Always polite, mannerly, kind to others, one of the hardest workers, and unselfish humans I had the privilege to work with. I have a tremendous amount of respect for him, and will always remember the positive environment he created. Josh I will remember you always!! Rest in Peace my friend.

I did not personally know this young man but from reading this article, I wish I could have met him. He's a true hero for serving his country and a superior role model for us all in the way he lived his life. God bless you, Josh.

A Chaplin in Iraq told me that all warriors are sheepdogs. I expect he will be standing guard with many more at heavens gate.
