A network of memories

We've all been moved by the responses we received when we asked iReporters to share stories and memories of troops they lost to war . The supportive community that cropped up around these stories, however, was something of a surprise.

 

When sinej submitted an iReport paying tribute to Lt. Peter H Burkes, her best friend of 13 years, sarahburkes logged on to iReport.com to leave the following comment on sinej's story: "peter is my hero. he was an amazing big brother and i miss him everyday. i love you peter. and we are taking good care of missy!"

 

And when Mail4DaveN submitted his iReport tribute to his brother, Cpl Richard J Nelson , everyone from friends, family, and people that only knew Ricky through stories shared their condolences. A truly remarkable show of support, and we hope more iReporters will share their comments and stories, too.
