I must admit thats the worst. It's hard to do that, I don't think I could ever do that.

Sorry about Your Brother. I hope he went quick.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

03 3.8l Twin turbo GT conversion Tremec 5 spd 9 bolt rear Midnight blue God I miss that car.

I have a 98 4.6 ltr GT, Tremec 5 spd, 9 bolt rear end, 3 inch lowering springs, BBK cold air intake, 79 mm throttle body, Bright Atlantic Blue Metallic. Nothing fancy. I do have plans to get a 2013 Coyote 5.0. But that requires some green.

Joshua, Dewykid, I just want to thank you two men for what you did. I hope one day to meet each of you and when I do, you won't ever have to buy a drink.

I lost all 4 of my brothers outside of Fallujah in 04. I was the RTO/Driver and stepped out to relieve myself when a gorilla hunter/killer RPG team hit our humvee.

Sorry bro Thats a terrible thing to have happen I honestly don't know how you kept it together... My squad was pulling Op Sec for EOD route Irish when the Secondary went off before the Primary, couple broken bones was what I got jacobs caught the bulk of it , I know I don't need to explain it to you. I wasn't out of the induced coma when I found out they had already told his wife, took me almost a year to talk to her to apologize. The only reason I am still here is because of the rest of my squad. I don't even want to think about losing family like that in one go. You survive so much **** together then they are gone. Thats mostly why I left the military I couldn't handle being unable to protect my family.

Route Irish, I will never forget my first trip down that hellway. I have a t-shirt that says Route Irish Race Team. I have kept it together because of my daughter. (And tons of therapy) smile.gif To this day, I still see their faces, hear their voices, the way they smelled (I know that sounds strange), and the way we messed with each other. We trained together from Basic, to SOI, BRC, and Recon. We cried together, fought together or each other, and lived together. They ARE my brothers. I loved them as such and will always carry them in my heart.

Sorry TT for the way this post turned. I apologize Brett.

Fellas, I don't know about Brett, but you guys got NOTHING to apologize for...You walked through hell, stood tall, lost brothers and came home and have lived and will live with that. THAT is the kind of sacrifice that needs recognizing...I would be PROUD to share the road with you guys...
