Hall, I heard some amazing things about you this evening, from your mom. She's very proud of you. She talked about how much you loved what you were doing in the military, how that had been your goal for a long time. Your sister showed us a questionnaire that you had answered during high school, she found it in some of your papers. It has one question in it, in regards to what you wanted to do with your future. You answered that you wanted to be in Army. Well, you did it. I think I have one of those around my house somewhere, that I answered the same way when I was in school. That seems like so long ago. And as we get older, we tend to veer off from our course, get distracted with life, that sort of thing. It was tempting for you too wasn't it? I can relate to that. But there's just something about knowing that our families sleep safer at home, because of what we do in far away lands. I'd tell you about your Harley, but you've seen it haven't you... so bright and shiny, with pictures of you all around it. But I felt you in your mom's house, felt you watching over her. Just know, that we're all watching after her now, for you. You're family extends far beyond blood. You will be missed Specialist Hall.

God speed.

Sincerely,

Terri Birch (SGT Clyde)

When you have the privilege to stand in front of a squad you get a sense of pride that comes from the soldiers you are leading and not from any thing you have done. The soldiers in that formation are what gives you pride. SPC Hall was one of those soldiers. Anything that was asked of him he did right and right away. He was always ready to go even when I was frustrated with the mission. Hall had a lets just do it attitude. I never new the true definition of LOYALTY till I met Hall one day standing in the hallway of the reserve center. He told me that no one would mess with his squad his squad leader or any one in his chain of command. This was not an idol threat it was how Butch lived his life. He was a great soldier. He did everything right the first time and loved being a soldier. As a friend you could not find a better one than Hall. You could always expect him to tell you how it was. And he kept you from getting a big head. I would hear a joke about something stupid I did just to turn around and see him giggling at me. As men go David "Butch" Hall was the best. I will always miss him.

Donna, I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Jesse thought a lot of Butch, he talked about him often and always had good things to say. Butch wanted to be a soldier and knew the military was a good place for him. We are proud of him for his dedication and willingness to serve our country. Although I have not had a chance to talk to Jesse I know that his thoughts are with you and your family.

SPC Hall was a take charge individual... a professional. He was very loyal to his chain of command and protective of his brothers and he truly viewed his platoon and unit as a brotherhood. He was on track to be a great non-commissioned officer and leader. Unfortunately, his path turned the direction that many Soldiers face. He is not alone, but among friends. And though he has executed his last action as a Soldier here on Earth, I am quite certain that he is busy right now squaring away everything and everyone up in Heaven. That is the way he is and he will always be remembered at the 414th MP Company.

Dear Donna,I don't know that anyone could ever fully explain, how much Butch meant to us. He was a soldier that was always were he was suppose to be, and ready to get any job done. More importantly, he always performed these task with professionalism, and a great attitude. I know that personally, I always looked forward to seeing him at drills, because he was always so much fun to work with, but, while working hard, or just kicking back and having some fun, he was always a joy. As a friend, he gave great advise, never left you hanging, and always had your back. The world is now a shade darker, but I know he will watch over us, and light our way, from Heaven. He will never be forgotten. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Butchie, Buddy we have "been there and done that" together several times! I have a lot of memories of good times and not so good times. But whatever the case you always kept me laughing and that laughter is what got me through some of those tough times. I am sure that I will share much of those memories with people that knew you as well as those who should have. But there are those few that I will keep to myself, those that only me and you knew about that would have probably got us into a mess. Those are the ones that I often think about as I know you do to. I find this very hard to complete, but I want you to know that your family does go beyond bloodlines, you are my brother and always will be. As your team leader and buddy I had the great pleasure of being around you 24/7 - Egypt, Cuba, Ft. Benning. Those are the times that I will keep with me always. I often laugh out loud when I think of some of the stuff you pulled. I will always remember the last conversation that we had on-line, you couldn't stop talking about your Harley, I did see it the other day, and let me tell you, it is the best. I am very proud of you and everything you stand for, you were well on your way to being one great police officer, this world will miss your presence dearly. there will not be one day that passes that I will not think of you, I will always remember.

Your buddy., Houdyshell

Butch, I don't know what to say except that when you came and ate with us... Donna, we've never met but I feel as though I know you because I knew your wonderful son. He came and ate with us when they were preparing to go to Cuba. I brought his laundry home and washed it and took it back to him. He was a great kid. You can be very proud. I sent him a few e-mails and told him thanks for serving our country and I'm so glad I did. We have videos of him we've watched three times today through our tears. As hard as this time is I know God knows best. Please know that you are in my heart and prayers. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to know Butch. I became especially attached to him because he reminded me of my own son.

God Bless You Angie Houdyshell (Ronny's mom)

To the family of Butch Hall...We are so sorry for your loss and grieve with you. Josh has been serving with Butch in Kabul for the last few months and thought so greatly of him as a soldier and as a man. I, have gotten the fortune to spend time with Butch at Ft. Benning and thought he was one of the most courteous and kindest young men in the unit. He always showed me such respect and was just an absolute doll. Josh is devastated at the loss of SPC. Hall. I know that nothing can bring him back to you, but please know that everyone he came into contact with, was touched and loved him dearly. The Army has lost a wonderful soldier and the 414th has lost a wonderful friend. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I am the Infantry, follow me.

not a foot soldier, we're much more you see.

We'll take the fight to the enemy.

I am the Infantry, the first of the three.

 

I am the Calvary, follow me.

A modern horse soldier in an APC.

Charging straight forward to the enemy.

I am the Cav, most daring of the three.

 

I am the Armor, follow me.

The arm of decision I'll always be.

When the going gets rough, call on me.

I am the Armor, the best of the three.

 

Armor, Cav, and Infantry

rush headlong into the melee.

Braking the lines like an angry sea

deep into enemy territory.

 

Approaching a crossroads, what do we see?

The area secured by two lonely MPs

Directing us forward, how can this be?

How long have they been waiting for me?

 

What a crazy person an MP must be.

He has no firepower or armor like me.

And I thought everyone followed the three

Armor, Cav, and Infantry.

 

I am the MP, don't follow me.

You don't want to be where I will be.

Guarding the crossroads, waiting for the three.

Just my partner, a sixteen, a sixty and me.

 

With the objective taken, wait and see.

No one will remember the lonely MP

Who held this ground so they could run free,

But that my job, supporting the three."

To the family of "Butch": We have lost yet another great soldier. I have had the pleasure of serving with him during Cuba, Ft. Benning, and Afghanistan. No matter how upset some of us got during the day, he always managed to scheme up something with Houdyshell, Melvin, Carter, Vogel, Wilson, and McIntosh to get us to laugh or reflect on how foolish we really were. I can recall a few prime incidents like the silly stringing of my bunk and Houdyshell low crawling on David's order by the tents in Cuba. I don't think I will ever be able to forget the antics and hilarity.

SSG McGehee said today in the memorial that he will never be able to remember when he ever had an argument with David. That's because it wasn't in his general nature. He was well on his way to becoming a great police officer and fulfilling one of his goals. Some of us should be envious that we could accomplish our goals in such a manner. He will be greatly missed by so many. Our prayers and open arms go out to you and yours. Greater love hath no man than this, That a man lay's down his life for his friends. John 15:13

To those soldiers who served with Butch and their families, We would like to thank you all for submitting your memories and thoughts here. Your love and respect for Butch is obvious through your words. It is nice to be able to read these thoughts and see Butch's smile and personality come through when we think of those antics you have posted here. That was our Butch!!! It is comforting to know that he spent the last few months of his life with such good friends. We have not met most of you, but feel as if we know at least a part of you. Thank you for your gifts of prayer and your support. To the families of the other soldiers involved in the accident, we want you to know that we are keeping all of you in our prayers. God bless you all and the service you give your country!!!

I had only met Butch a couple of times, but my husband came to know him quickly when serving with him in Kabul. He loves the guys he serves with and holds a great deal of respect for each of them. He misses Butch terribly as so many of us do, and its wonderful to know that he is in Heaven watching over our soldiers now and staying with them for the duration of their deployment. To his family, I pray for peace and comfort in your time of loss, and I thank you for sharing Butch with us. He was a wonderful soldier as well as a great man. Thank you Butch for being such a great friend and soldier with my husband, we will never forget you.

Donna, David and Frances and Family, I can't tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I can't imagine what you are feeling but I can tell you that our thoughts and prayers are with you. It doesn't seem like our kids should be all grown up like they are. I remember when they were little kids and we were yelling at them even if they weren't really doing anything wrong. We have made it through a lot over the years and through a lot of different situations and you can make it through this. Stay strong in heart and soul. I love You!!!

Once again I'm at a lose for words. Butch was an outstanding soldier and I'm proud to have had the privilege to serve with him. He was always fun to be around and made me laugh often. Those of us who served with Butch have all lost a fellow brother. I will miss you my friend but will not forget your sacrifice.

Butch. You weíre one of a kind & we will never forget the laughter & fun you brought. I always remember how you made others laugh and smile while in class, but you weíre never a disruption. Often ornery, but ALWAYS respectful & a hard worker.

It was just a few months ago that we were talking about how proud of you we are here at UHS. Words canít describe how honored we all are to have men such as you fighting for not just our freedom & safety, but the worldís.

God Bless You Buddy! Youíll be missed by all. Our prayers go out to your family and friends.

Butch and I grew up together, from grade school until graduation from UHS in 2000. Butch played football and was a teammate of mine. He was a guy that you just had to respect and love. If he wanted something, he'd go get it. As a teammate, he had your back and wouldn't let you down. He did the same for his country and for all of us. To Butch and all of other soldiers.... thank you for allowing us to live in freedom, you guys are the true heroes. Butch, we'll miss ya

3/1/04 To the Hall family, I am so saddened to learn of your loss. My son, Sgt Travis Carter is in the unit, and Butch was in his squad, so this is very close to me, even though I didn't have the pleasure to know Butch. We are all proud of our soldiers, as I am sure you are of yours. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this very sad time. God be with you all, as I know Butch is with him now in a better place.

To the Halls, I am very saddened to hear of your loss. My husband SSG Booth, Terence is a member of the 805th Military Police. However Terence is attached to unit currently deployed in Iraq. I am familiar, however, with a lot of the soldiers that are in Afghanistan and I pray for each one of them each and everyday. I am also an active member of the 805th MP family support group and our prayers go out to you.

Butch, I do not even know where to begin! I do want to start by telling you that I love you and I always will! You taught me so much through my course of dating you and also just being your friend. The most important thing you taught me was how to love! You were my first love and you will always have a special place in my heart! I just constantly think about our memories together! I just wish I could have had one last day with you to have the talk we were suppose to have when you got home! I want to hear the things you wanted to talk to me about when you got home, but I guess those things will have to wait until we meet again! You always made me laugh and feel so safe when I was with you. Butch, I love you and I will never forget you! I promise there will never be a day that goes by that I do not think about you and wish that you were here! I love you!

David, Donna, Uncle Bob, Francis, and my entire Kansas Family; Words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. I have been where you are. I pray that God will give you all the strength and courage to get through this. I never had the privilege of meeting "Butch" but it sounds like he was a great guy. I have always felt honored to know that one of my family was helping to protect our country. I could never express my gratitude for his bravery and commitment. It is with great regret that I will be unable to attend the services for this wonderful young man and give each of you my love and hugs. I will be thinking of you all and praying for you. Unfortunately, God only seems to take the best. And Butch was one of the best. God Bless you.

Butch I just want to thank you. Thanks for the good times, the camping, the fishing, the time we spent together. And thank you for doing what you did so well, giving your time so that we could be at home with our families, enjoying the freedom that you strongly protected. May the sun always shine on you and all of those like you that made the ultimate sacrifice, and may the fish always bite. You are a true hero, some one every American can look up to and honor. Just remember, its not "goodbye", its "see you later". We are all proud of you and to have known you, and you will never, ever, be forgotten. I love you bubba.

See you later buddy, Big Ken

Butch- I cannot begin to tell you how much you mean to me. I feel like a part of me is missing now that you are gone. I love you so much and you know how much I cared for you while we were together. I will always remember all the times we shared. One thing I will never forget is the time "john" ate your ring. That was the one and only time I was afraid of you! I ended up making you laugh over the situation just like you were always making me laugh at your renditions to every song on the radio! I keep thinking about the time you told me that you would die for your country if you had to and that puts a smile on my face knowing that there are more soldiers like you fighting for our country. I will always remember your wonderful smile and warm heart.

I love you, Kat.


02 Mar 2004
00:22:24

Butch- You had a way of always making people smile. I feel for your family right now. My hearts and prayers go out to them all, even though I know you are looking over them from heaven. It was a loss to our community to lose such a great guy. The last few days have been filled with funny stories from people about things that you did before you left. It doesn't seem right that you are gone, but maybe God has other plans for you in heaven. We will miss you dearly.

I'll Lend you a child "I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine." He said "for you to love the while he lives, and mourn for when he's dead It may be six or seven years or twenty-two or three. But will you, til I call him back take care of him for me? He'll bring his smiles to gladden you, and should his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I've looked this wide world over in my search for teachers true. And from the things that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, nor count the labor vain, Nor hate Me when I come to call to take him back again?" I fancied that I heard them say, "Dear Lord, thy will be done, For all the joy, Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may, And for the happiness, we've known forever grateful stay, But should the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned We'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand."

David Hall (Butch)

A military man he chose to be,

In honor of God and our country.

With respect, dignity and pride,

A gun held close by his side.

A soldier Butch did become,

And ended at just age twenty-one.

A prideful man with ambition to succeed,

Only felt he was doing his country a good deed.

 

Let us remember the joyful times of the past,

And all the fond memories that will continue to last.

The laughter, the love, family and friends,

Never feeling it will come to an end.

Yet when God calls us away,

To be joined with him He'll say,

"Become as a child in my arms today."

Butch, you hold a special place in my heart. We have been friends for a long time. I had a dream the other night. I dreamed that you and I were talking and I don't know what was said but we started laughing. I could here your voice like you were right here. I will miss you so much and I will keep your family in my prayers.

Butch, of all the fallen soldiers, I just donít understand why you had to be one of them. You had a personality and attitude like no other, and you shared those with everyone you were around. From the first time that I met you, you treated me like a little sister. You were always there for me when Adam and I were going through hard times and you made sure that I was okay. I couldnít have asked for a better ďbig brother.Ē You always had so much faith and so much respect in me and Iíll never forget that. You were not only Adamís best friend, but you were also mine as well as a big brother. You will still be the best man at Adam and Iís wedding. No one could take your place. We plan on lighting a candle where you would have stood in memory of you and your friendship and love for the both of us. Butch, although it is hard for you to go, Iím glad that I had the chance to know you. I will always hold your memories very close to my heart. No matter how long the wait, your family and friends will never forget you, and one day, weíll see you again. Youíll always be in our hearts. I love you very much.

Butch was a close family friend and will be greatly missed. He was not afraid to help his family. I remember on a summer day that it was close to 100 degrees outside and he was outside cutting a tree trunk out of his grandma's pasture in Redfield. May God Bless his family and watch over them all. We will all miss Butch dearly.

May God bless your family in this time of sorrow. May you feel his loving arms around you comforting you. When you are at your weakest and feel as if you can't go on, remember God is strong. Its not God's fault. The fault lies in the evil the devil brought into this world. Let God comfort you. Turn to Jesus in your time of need. I am praying for you......

Butch, thank you for what you did for everyone in our country and thank you for being such a good friend. Thank you for always helping anyone who needed help. Jen, Casey, and Jeremy were so lucky to have you as a brother and I was lucky to have you as a friend.

Hey Butch I am at a loss for words to tell you how proud I am of you. I got to laughing the other day because I was thinking about the cedar chest you made for me and Tanya and the payment you wanted for making it... a case of natty light for you to take on senior skip day. You had put so much time and effort into that chest to make it as beautiful as possible for me, yet all you wanted was something worth about ten bucks! But then again that is just the way you were. You'd do anything for anyone and expect virtually nothing in return. Some things never change. You gave all you had for something so many take for granted...FREEDOM. I look forward to seeing you in the future so save a spot on the river bank for me beside you so I can hear the stories of all your wild escapades and maybe I can have some stories to tell you. I love you Butch.

I'm sure i will see you in the future. Since we did not have much time to talk because you was gone saving our Country and I thank you for that. But in the future we will get to talk more.. Love ya always and forever

Butch, you will be deeply missed! I will never forget the great talks that we shared-and the great times that we had (especially when you were helping me fix stuff!) Your sense of care and concern for EVERYONE is something that nobody will ever be able to replace! Words will never be able to describe how much you meant to me, you and your whole family are like family! I love you, and miss you!

Butch, I never had the pleasure of meeting you and i am sorry for that. Life has a way of knocking the breath right out of us and we may never know why. All I can say is that heaven will never be the same now. Between you and my husband, SSG Mowris we have the guardian angel department covered. Rest in Peace Butch and give my husband a hug.

Butch was a fantastic young man. He was one of those guys that you just couldn't help but like. His personality was what drew people to him, an out going young man whose love for life was contagious. He was one of those ornery boys in school that teachers just loved. After he would do something mischievous, he would smile and take the blame. He always spoke to you wherever he saw you. We will all miss him terribly. I'm sure he was a great soldier and would have been a terrific law enforcement officer.

Butch, This so hard to do. You are like a little brother to me. There was not a day that went by when you were over in this war that I did not think about you. I prayed for you everyday that you were safe and would come home safe. Knowing that I will never be able to see or talk to you again, until I see you on the other side, is so hard to grasp. Everyone you came in contact with you touched their life in someway. You touched my life in more ways then you will ever know.. I know that you are now in heaven looking down on us and in some way you will help all of us deal with the pain that we are feeling. You are a very special person to so many people.. I will never forget that cute little smile you gave to me when I saw you. I know your mom is very dear to you and I want to assure you that your mom will be taken care of.. You have a lot of friends and family that will look after her for you.. I love you butch and I will talk to you again someday.

Butch, It always seemed that when you were around everyone was in such a good mood and having fun. Growing up with you and your family was a blessing. We will never forget the times when you and Casey would come over and we would just stand around and talk about nothing important but it was so fun. Just always remember you will be in our hearts and we'll never forget the times we had together. Just always know that we are here for your family when they need someone. Thanks for standing up for our country and doing things that you love. We love you Butch and will someday meet up with you again.

Butch- You truly had a way of capturing people's hearts. I am so proud to have known you, and so proud of your commitment to serving our country. Your Mother is sooooo proud of you and there was not a time that went by that I saw her that she didn't take the time to tell me how things were going for you. My son wants to go into the service after he finishes High School, and how honored I would have been if he would have gotten to have a conversation with you. Thank you so much for everything you are and everything you have done.

I don't even know you but I can tell from the impact you are having on everyone in my school that you were an awesome guy and you will be missed always and forever. I hope one day we can finally meet. And when we do it will be a happy moment because we will meet in a happy place. You were fighting for our freedom and I thank you so much for that and I just want to tell you that you are loved by many and will always be remembered. E.

I AM A SOLDIER

WHO WAS SENT TO WAR,

TO DEFEND MY COUNTRY

WHO WAS PUNCHED TO THE FLOOR.

 

I STOOD IN HONOR

FOR THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE,

TO BE ALL THAT I COULD BE

SO WE COULD DO WHAT WE DO.

 

I WAS PROUD TO STAND

FOR OUR COUNTRY AND FIGHT,

TO PROTECT THIS LAND,

OUR FREEDOM, AND RIGHTS.

 

SO WHEN YOU SEE A FLAG

REMEMBER MY FACE,

THAT FLAG THAT FLIES HIGH

WAS MY DUTY AND PLACE.

SPC Hall, You will be remembered as a Great MP in my eyes. I have spent my whole military career as an MP on both active duty and in the reserves. I have seen MP's come and go, but SPC Hall stood with the best of them. When I was his Platoon Sergeant I could rely on SPC Hall to get the job done with no questions asked. I could rely on his honesty even when he was in trouble. His comment to me was always, "I'm sorry Sergeant Anderson, I screwed up and have no excuses." He was the poster child for "Assist, Protect, Defend our Own!" I was short of words and grieved in my own way when I had to escort SPC Hall's body from Delaware back to his hometown. There was great deal of respect shown by all of those who were involved in the escort. SPC Hall will be remembered by all who knew him well. I know in the future there will still be comments starting with, "Remember when Hall..." He will be sorely missed by me and all of those who knew him. GODSPEED!! SPC Hall

David,

I am sorry this has taken so long to write. It's a lot harder to write things down than to just think them. There has never been a day that I haven't thought about you, and there will not be a day that I don't think about you. Ever since the day I met you, you have had my heart. We wanted to wait, because we were going to save the best for last, (remember that talk?). It's hard to think that I am going to be moving to Kansas and you are not going to be there. I had a image of the way the future was going to be, and now I cant even think about tomorrow, because it hurts to bad. There will never be another person that can take your place.

Friday I ran into a friend when I came into town, and she told me that your mom asked about me. That meant so much to me, just knowing that in the situation that she's in and she was asking about me. I saw her the next day and she came up to me and hugged me and asked how I was doing, and she gave me a kiss on the cheek. She may never know how much that meant to me, but I will never forget that moment, It was almost like you were there, and I had known her for years. Your one brother looks so much like you, I just wanted to go up and hug him, but still it wouldn't be you. He is a lucky man to be so handsome.

The most ironic thing happened to me the other night on my way home, I was pulled over by a highway patrol man, of all law enforcement officers, a highway patrol man. I have never been pulled over, but sure enough I got pulled over on Saturday night. I believe that was your crazy way of telling me everything is going to be alright. I praise God for giving me such a wonderful friend, and I know that everything is going to be okay. I love you so much and I am sorry that I never told you how much I care for you. I know that I will see you again one day, and the happiest day it will be. I couldn't of asked for a better guardian angel. I love you with all of my heart.

Love Always,

P.S. Can I have a sign every now and then? LaToyia

Butch, You were such a special young man. This is so hard, it is almost like losing Adam. He thought so much of you and had so many plans for when you came home. You touched so many lives that I doubt you even realized that even though your time was short you impacted so many in so many ways. You will be missed but for those of us who are left behind we are so grateful for men and women like you who are willing to lay down your lives that we might live in such a great country. Some day we shall meet again.

Butch- First off I would like to thank you. Thank you for being the greatest thing that ever happened to Baylee and I. Thank you for being the greatest daddy to her when you didn't have to be. You always claimed her as your own and loved her as your own. I can never thank you enough for being so great to her. I know that one of your fears was that she was going to forget who you were by the time you got back. I just wanted to let you know that she does still remember. She saw your picture the other day and I asked her who it was and she said "DaDa." I wish you could be here to see how she is growing up. You and her would definitely have fun now that she is walking! Kaylan just takes her by the hand and away they go. The day you were leaving for Afghanistan and I watched your bus drive away- I knew that one day you would come home, but I never thought it would be like this. Just know that Baylee and I will always love you and your memory will live on and on. All of your family is in our prayers and we send out our love to them. We will love you forever,

I have spent some time going through the hundreds of memories for both SSG Mowris and now SPC Hall. Words will never express the sorrow I have after the loss of these two Soldiers nor can I truly understand how it must feel to be the mother, the wife, the son or daughter of these two great Americans during this tragic time. But being the father of a Soldier serving his country in Kuwait, I do understand the anxiety of the long wait for his return home. Like many of you, it wonít come soon enough. The 917th Corps Support Group has had more than our share of wounded in this war. But every one of those fine Soldiers fought for freedom and in some cases is now fighting for their lives. No one can every repay them for their life, their lost leg or the tragic memories they now have, but we all can remember and honor their patriotism and valor shown to their units and us. Many of you are new to the military and through these tragedies you now understand the incredible family you belong too. You understand that when one Soldier falls, we all feel the pain and agony of what they endured. I pledge to you all that these comrades will not be forgotten. There will be a place of honor in the 917th Headquarters for as long as our colors fly. Michele and Donna, we will always be here for you and your family. Thank you for allowing your husband and son to serve the greatest country on the earth. I have been honored to be their commander and I am deeply saddened by their loss. May God keep you in his arms and may he comfort you every day.

Butch, You will be greatly missed by your friends, family you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. There is always a reason for God allowing a good man such as you to go, I just know that he has a purpose for you. You are in God's Army now. God bless you. To The family I want you to know that our prayers are with you and we will be there for you to talk to to cry to and to even get mad with. Love you all, Donna, David, Jim, Jeremy, Jennifer, Casey, Frances, and all the rest of his family.

Hey Butch! This is hard to write for me because I can't think that you are gone yet. Or maybe I just don't want to think so yet. I know you will always be remembered here as the best guy in the world, and you will always be my hero, for all the things you have done for everybody here at home and everywhere else. Every night when I look up at the stars I think of you as the brightest and biggest one up there. I wanted you to know that everyone back at home misses you a lot. Donna was very lucky to have you as a son, and your brothers and sister was very lucky to have you too. From all of us at home we love you and miss you.

THANK YOU does not seem big enough to truly express our heartfelt gratitude for all the kindness, support and comfort shown to our family during our recent loss. Words will never begin to express our true appreciation for the support we received. During his life, Butch left his footprints in a lot of peoples sand and as a result of his death, many of you have left your footprints in our sand. It is our sincere hope that Butch's footprints will continue to lead you in a positive direction with the same spark of life, determination, ambition, orneriness and happiness he shared with all of us! It is with sincere gratitude that we thank each of you for your support!

To all the family and friend of ďHallĒ all I can say is that I am truly happy to have known him and that I am very sorry for your loss. David was a great soldier who cared about all people around him and was dedicated to doing his job to the best of his abilities.

The loss of David hits all of us who knew him very hard and close to home. I remember merely two months ago talking to him after the loss of Mo, and how sorry he was and the sadness he felt for him, and for all his family must have been going through. Well buddy, now we are all going through it again, unfortunately you arenít here to greave and reminisce with us.

I donít remember ever hearing anything negative come out of his mouth, nor anything negative about him from anyone else. He was a go-getter and a very spirited energetic young soldier and he would have made it far if he had been allowed to do so.

Although we all need guardian angels, none of us ever want to loose one of our own. But we lost two! How will we ever spend time at a hotel without the ingenuity of David pushing people in the pool while dressed or coming up with fun jokes to lighten the mood of any situation.

You will be greatly missed and I am truly sorry that we didnít have longer to get to know each other. You were a great soldier and I know you would have been very successful in anything you ever set your mind to. Itís with my deepest sympathy that I close out yet another chapter of my life by burying yet another friend, comrade and soldier. Keep heaven safe for us and we will have a huge reunion one day when we all meet up again. You can arrange for the fun cause I know Mo will be in charge of the BBQ.

SPC Hall, I just wanted you to know that you are a great friend who looked out for others before putting yourself first. You were the makings of a true leader. I remember in Cuba before the big "sea hut search" how you and I kept going around making sure our korans and prayer caps were hidden and how everyone else involved jumped on our band wagon. I am still laughing at that every time I see the koran or prayer caps in my shadow box. Hall you are deeply missed and hope someday we will meet again. Thank you for being a friend.

To the Family of Spc. Hall; You are in my thoughts and prayers. This must be the most difficult time for you, I am a 21 1LT in the US ARMY here at Ft. Knox, Kentucky. I'm from Southeast Kansas and I know how hard it is to loose someone who is my "neighbor" I pray for the safe return of all of our Soldiers and their familys. Hall was a great guy. I met him only once when I was first enlisting in the Army, I had to stop by the 414th with my Recruiter. We talked and he really gave me some good insight on what I should expect from Basic Training and AIT. He gave me his number and told me to call if I had any questions. It's soldiers like him who make me proud to stand up and say that I'm an American and that I proudly serve in the US Army! Thanks Hall... You really helped me! HOOAH 1Lt Brown

Butch, Sorry it took so long for me to write. I dont even know where to begin. You have tought me a lot of things in a short period of times that I known you. We had a lot of fun together in afghanistan. It has been an honor to know you and to hang out with you on and off duty.There's not a day goes by that I stop thinking about you. Eventhough I've only known you for a few months but I feel that we have known each other for a while. You will always stay in my heart. I will never forget you. I miss you. Love Always, Lewina Walters

Butch, We have shared a lot of good memories while we were in afghanistan. There's some that no one else knows but there's some that we shared with Melvin, Carter, and Thompson ( you know what I'm talking about, LOL ). Remember the things that you always had Crazy said to me everytime he's at the gate? I still can never forget that. I am so sorry that I didnt say bye to you before I left, I wasnt able to and none of the guys knew that I had left not even the custom guys. I was airvac'd to Germany and I didnt get a chance to see anybody except for Sgt Bryant.  He came by to see me before I left the hospital. When Thompson told me that you were gone I didnt believe it, I thought it was a joke until King and Biggens got on the phone. It broke my heart as soon as they told me. Until this day I didn't want to belive that you are gone. We were suppose to go out and have a party when we both got home, remember. I cant stop thinking about you and the great times we spent together. You made afghanistan a fun place for me. I miss you picking on me even though I hated it at the time 'cause you always picked on me so much. There's so much that I wanted to tell you and I know that you'll be proud of me. I just graduated nursing school like you wanted me to when I got out. Sometimes I have dreams about you and the dreams feel so real that sometimes I think that you are right beside me. I miss you Butch and I know that you are watching over me like you always did while we were overseas. I am coming to visit you as soon as I get some leave time.

To donna ( butch's mom ),

Ma'am, we have never met but I served in afghanistan with him and he talked so much about you and his harley. I am sorry for the loss that you've experianced. I cant even try to imagine how you feel. I am sorry it took me so long to write but I just got this site from one of the guys. He was the sweetest guy I ever meet.

Butch, you now have another brother there with you to take care of and show the ropes. You may only have seen him a short while but he IS one of ours. He may have been well on his way to becoming and Officer but he was still enlisted at heart. Keep the BBQ cooking and the drinks on ice, we will all be there to talk about life and deployments one day and I know you will greet us with open arms. LT Birch

It was an honor to have served with SPC Hall. He looked like a soldier and made me smile every time we talked. I had the privilege on one occasion in Afghanistan to spend a couple hours with him talking about his dreams and plans for the future. My prayers are with the Hall family. I will always remember the tough, well-liked soldier that will never be forgotten. Captain Clarkson, Commander, 805th MP CO

In memory of our late evening visitor. I can't even begin to tell you how much I miss that onery Butch. I always enjoyed seeing him and was almost broken hearted when he went from the day shift at work to 3-11. I didn't get to see him much anymore. He was always extremely polite and always offered a kind word. Most of the time when he stopped by, I was sound asleep and didn't know he was here until I got ready to go to work. I always went in and told him that he had to get outta here. Now that it is after the fact, I wish I would have left Butch asleep before I went to work, rather than wake him and send him home. He never complained when I woke him in the middle of his night, he politely got up and went home. I think of Butch often as I know many do, and it hurts me a great deal to know that I won't ever get to see him until I get to heaven. God needed an onery angel and I'm sure everyone there knows him on a first name basis. Donna I can't imagine your pain, and parts of this situation make me mad, but God knew who he wanted and he took him from us. I think of Butch often and I can see him perfectly sitting in his maroon truck in my driveway. I will always have a part of him in my heart along with the rest of the young men and women that we have lost from our area. My heart goes out to the parents who have lost their children at a young age for various reasons. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Even though Butch lost his life, he was very happy being a soldier. My thoughts and prayers are with you Donna as well as your family.

Take care, Dena

"The Final Inspection"

 

The policeman stood and faced his God,

Which must always come to pass.

He hoped his shoes were shining.

Just as brightly as his brass.

 

"Step forward now, policeman.

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My church have you been true?"

 

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,

Because those of us who carry badges

can't always be a saint.

 

I've had to work most Sundays,

and at times my talk was rough,

and sometimes I've been violent,

Because the streets are awfully tough.

 

But I never took a penny,

That wasn't mine to keep....

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep.

 

And I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear.

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

 

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fear.

 

If you've a place for me here,

Lord, It needn't be so grand.

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't.....I'll understand.

 

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod.

As the policeman waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

 

"Step forward now, policeman,

You've borne your burdens well.

Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in hell."

Butch,

Six months ago today our family realized first hand the price of freedom! We were all counting the days down until you were home - not knowing that God had a bigger plan. Blind sided, we were hit - like September 11th, only in rural America. Lots of things have changed since February 25th, but one things has remained the same: WE MISS YOU AND LOVE YOU! My heart would sink everytime I'd heard of a soldier who would not be coming home, I'd find myself saying a prayer for their loved ones not realizing just how badly they needed it. It is a daily struggle! I used to sign on to the computer every morning to get your emails, often they were jokes, sometimes you were just checking in to see how everyone was doing and other times you were saying "just gonna let you know i am leaving tomorrow for a mission. i probably wont be back for a month. so when you dont hear from me dont worry. love you, butch" I have not gotten an email for six months now, I don't worry because I know you are safe and it is comforting to know that one of your missions now is to watch over all of us. I don't hear from you, but I know you are there. YOU MAY BE GONE BUT OUR LOVE FOR YOU IS NOT!!! Six months ago today, we lost you but heaven gained one heck of a guardian angel!!!

Love you, Aunt Sharon

Butch, To put it lightly, the holidays have been especially tough this year. However, as I sat down to write I thought about your Christmas - your first Christmas in heaven and realized that you were getting to experience first hand the true birthday celebration! Wow, I can only imagine the birthday party you attended on December 25th - I'm sure it was spectacular! Hope you kept your pranks and orneriness under control!! ; ) Missing you and thinking of you today just as I do everyday.

Love you, Aunt Sharon

Butch, It has almost been a year and I still can not beleive it is true. I can not beleive you are never coming home or we are never going to hear your voice or see your face again. I go and sit at your grave sometimes and just sit there and think about all the crazy stuff you used to do. I miss you buddy but I know for a fact you are watching over me and looking out for me everyday. I love you so much and miss you everyday. Love me.

Hey Butch, I just found out yesterday that you have this website, otherwise I would have been sending you letters along with my thoughts that I tell you on a regular basis. I went and visited you about three weeks ago and I used your grave for a photography assignment, I hope you don't mind. My teacher said that it is the best photo that she has seen for that assignment, which was titled "repose". I think it is the best picture I have taken because I put the most heart and thought into that picture than any other that I have taken. I just wanted to tell you that I really miss you, but you already know that. I hope to see you someday again. LOVE YOU LOTS AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY HERO!!!

Love, Bridget

Hey Butch. So tomarrow is the day. It is still hard for all of to accept that you are not coming back. I was thinking the other day about all the fun times that we used to have, and I really miss those times. My mom found some pictures of you and she hung them up and we sit and look at them all the time. Well we do miss you and love you.

Butch - It has been a year but the hurt still stings as if it were today. I love you!

Aunt Sharon

 

If Tears could build a stairway

and memories were a lane,

I would walk right up to Heaven

And bring you back again.

No Farewell words were spoken

No time to say Good-Bye,

You were gone before I knew it

And only God knows why.

My heart still aches in sadness,

And secret tears still flow,

What it meant to lose you,

No one will ever know.

But now I know you want me

To mourn for you no more,

To remember all the happy times

Life still has much in store.

Since you'll never be forgotten,

I pledge to you today

A hallowed place with my heart

Is where you'll always stay.

Hey Butch- This has been a very tough year for me. I think about you everyday and I know that you are watching over me and everyone else that loves you. I know you are happy in Heaven and I know that I will see you again someday. Love you.

My dearest Butch--It is so difficult to believe that a year has passed already. I have not and will not ever forget you. I smile when I close my eyes and see that beautiful face and smile of yours; I laugh when I think of your pranks; and I cry when I am alone and thinking of you. You were a joy to all who knew you. Please continue to watch over your mom, she is doing the best she can in these circumstances. I love you with all my heart forever and always!!

Hey Butch. One year now and i still wait to see you or hear your voice. I visited you today. Sorry it has been so long. You have no idea how proud of you I am. But I still cant help but feel anger and hatred. Why is it that things like this have to happen? Is it a wake up call for people that take life for granted? I dont know maybe someday you can answer that for me. I look forward to seeing you again. In the mean time i will cherish all the crazy times we had together. I miss you and you are in my thoughts every day.

Love your cousin, Robbie Hall

Hey Handsome, Its your Aunt Herman & only for you would I let everyone know my nickname.:] I would always get embarassed when all you boys called me that, but God what I would give to hear you say it again. I still can't except the fact that you are gone. You have been & always will be in our thoughts & our hearts. I have a wall @ my new house just for you with your pictures. You always were SO very special to me & I am SO proud of you for all that you accomplished. It is so damn hard to sit here & try to put everything I'm feeling into words on a computer while I'm crying, but hey at least I feel like I'm getting to talk to you. I know your out there somewhere doing great things because thats just the kind of guy you are. We sure had fun dancing & cutting up when you were back on leave. We will have fun again one day babe until then I will hold all of our memories close to my heart. I was with your dad on the 25th, we laughed & we cried that day, it was tough on everyone. I love you & miss you so much, so does your dad.

Love Aunt Herman

Hey Butch, It's Tater Bug. It's already been a year. I can't believe it!! You were a great hero and that's what everyone will probably think of you for the rest of their lives. It's true you were a great hero. As you probably know your dad if moving to Florida on March 4th. We will miss him just like we miss you. You have no clue how much we miss you. I keep wanting to ask everyone, when is Butch coming back.It's so hard not to. Just so you know Kori talks about you all the time. Your dad misses you a whole lot. I would have written you sooner but we didn't have the internet. It is also hard not to ask were is Butch. I've talked to many people about you it just doesn't seem to help get over it at all. Everyday I think of you and so does everyone else. Boy does Kaylan sure wish you were here, all of us do. When she heard about you dieing she got mad and upset at the same time. She was mad because you didn't get to see the bow that she put on your Harley. Which I hope you liked! I still wish I could see you riding it. It's hard to sit here and type the way I feel, because I still can't see you. Lacey has a song called Hopeful that has your name in it and it makes us think of you. Now I'll probably start trying to write you everyday now that I know how. Talk to you later.We love you and miss you!!!!!!!!

Love your cousin, Tater Bug

Well I could not bring myself to get on here on the one year ann. It is still very hard for me to think of you as gone. For none of us to see you or say a goodbye is so very hard to deal with. You are a great guy and you will always be with each and everyone that knows you. Your mom is doing the best she can for all that she has been through. I have tried to check in on her from time to time just to make sure that she is ok. I know that you are taking care of her the best way that you know how. That is what you did best was take care of people. I am sitting here crying listening to "American Soldier" thinking why did it have to be you?? I know that is not a fair question but you had so much to off this world and I can not beleive that they took you. I want to wake up from this nightmare and you to walk up to me and tell me it is ok I am here. But I know that is not going to happen and it makes me very sad. I miss you so very much. You have many people that miss you very much. I will always love you and you will always be in my heart. There is not a day that goes by that I dont think of you. I love you Butch and you are my HERO!!!!!!!! Love Me......

To the Family of SPC. Hall: On behalf of the 243rd Quartermaster Battalion, I just want to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt sorrow for the loss of SPC Hall. The loss of a singke soldiers life serves to reinforce the reality of war as well as, the awesome responsibility and obligation we as Commanders have to our soldiers and their families as we strive to maintain a combat ready force. The soldiers of the 243rd QM BN and the 414th MP Company will always remember SPC David Hall for his self-less service and dedication to duty.

You have so many friends and you are missed so much. You will never be forgotten...your picture is on our fireplace mantle. We teach our kids about the sacrifices you and Mo made for this country. We are so proud to have known you.

Butch, though I was unable to visit your resting place today, I was sure to share a prayer over the new Veteran's cemetary in Springfield for you. Though I know you will be ripping around the Heavens on your Harley, take the time to guide us on missions ahead as I know that you and Mo will. You helped to create a family that will never forget the times and bonds that were shared over the years.

Your cuz got some very special news last week, he's going to be a daddy. I know how very much he would have loved to share that with you. He misses you dearly. You were not only his cousin, you were his bestfriend. One that he thought would be here with him through his wedding & having his children, but there were plans for you elsewhere. He still watches for signs from you, so if you can, let him know your there with him when he gets married & has his baby. We all love you honey!!! Take care.

Hi butch I am sorry that I haven't written you in awhile, I have been really busy with school but you know that you are always in my heart and thoughts. You will be proud of me.....I am now a firefighter in Florida but I will be moving to Fort Polk soon and will be working for the fire department there. It's been almost 2 yrs now and its still feels like it was yesterday. I never forget you and I always love you for what you did for me when we were over seas. You made me laugh with your jokes and pranks when I was really down. We spent a lot of nights sitting in front of your tent talking in the dark and you would mess with people that walked by. You were always there for me when I needed you and I wish that I could've been there when you needed me but I know that you are in a better place now. I promise that I will come up and visit you after I move... I would come sooner but I couldn't bare to actually see your grave. It still hard to believe that you are gone. Well I heard that the boys are going on a mission again....Please watch over them and tell SGT Mo that I said hi. Please keep watching over me honey and guide me. I miss you butch and Happy 23rd birthday { sorry I am late }

Hey sweetie. I am sitting here listening to one friend left and still can not believe that you are gone. I just don't understand. I miss you so much. I wish everyday that you were here with us. I am looking out for your mom and trying to make sure that she is ok everyday. I hope you know that I will watch out for her for you. I love her like she were my mom. butch god I miss you. I want so badly for this to be a bad dream and wake up and see your face again but I know that is not going to happen. I want you back in our lives. you were the rock for a lot of people. I remember when I was always down you would tell me it would be ok and that you knew that I would find happiness somewhere. I need to hear that from you again. god I love you and miss you so very much. please watch over me and everyone else. love you me.

Hey Butch... Bailee again. Look I know that I never knew you, and you probably don't know me either, but my whole family can't believe that you're gone. When I found out, I started to cry because I knew that you were my cousin and I just couldn't believe it. I talked to Taylor and asked her if she knew and she said yes. We talked for a little bit and then Taylor told me that she was really looking forward to riding on your Harley when you came home. Just last night she spent the night with me and we were looking at something on the computer about 9/11 I think and then she said that she was about to cry so I gave her a hug and guess what she says!!! "OKAY I'M NOT THAT SAD!!" Can you believe her? Well I guess it's just that Hall blood in us. Well I pray for everyone in the army sometimes and I just hope that they are okay. I love you so much Butch. I can't wait till the day comes that I get to meet you. Love always your cousin, Bailee Elizabeth Hall

Its another one of the mornings, I can't stop thinking about you. I don't know if its because February is here & all the memories are flooding back or what, but tears are falling like rain for me. I wish I could turn back time & you would be here w/ your family where you belong. I hate this war & all the pain it has cost us. You were supposed to be home w/ us planning your future & having fun. WHY? Why God? I don't understand. Butchy, please always remember how much we love you & how proud we are of you. Thank you for all you've done for us & for loving your family the way you always did. Missing you bad ! A.H.

This month marks another year of our worst nightmare & the pain is still so great. Our family aches, but we are getting through this with the help of each other & God. You meant the world to ALL of your family, please don't ever forget that. You made us so proud. THINKING OF YOU, MISSING YOU & LOVING YOU FOREVER! All My Love Aunt Herman ( Cheryl )

Hi Butch. Man it has been awhile. I really miss you. Brian still has not been sent overseas. His unit just returned a few months ago so it will be a little while before that happens. I know that you have been watching over me just like you did when you were still here. Have to take care of your little cousin because you always felt that was your job. I liked knowing that I always had you to watch over me and keep the boys away. Now that I am in college and growing up I wish that you were here to come with me to some of the parties and still be here to ward off the boys. lol. I miss you! Love ya tons! Bridget

Hey Butchy, I miss you so very much! I'm sorry I haven't written for a long time, but I never stop thinking about you. I am just now able to write to you again and it feels much better to be able to. I feel you around me a lot of times and I just wish I could collect another one of those great hugs of yours. I'm so very proud of you and the man you became. Your mom and dad really miss you so much, and it hurts me to see them in so much pain. We all have our days when it just really gets to us really bad and there's nothing anyone can do or say to ease the pain. For me, it helps when we all ( our family ) get together and talk about old times and my pain soon goes from total sadness and tears, to laughter and pride. We're all so very proud of you and thankful for your love and memories. Love Forever Aunt Janet

HE ONLY TOOK MY HAND Last night while I was trying to sleep my friends voice, I did hear, I opened my eyes and looked around but he did not appear. He said guys, you've got to listen you've got to understand, God didn't take me from you he only took my hand. When I called out in pain that day the instant that I died, He reached down and took my hand and pulled me to his side. He pulled me up and saved me from the misery and pain, my body was hurt so badly inside I could never be the same. My search is really over now I've found happiness within, All the answers to my empty dreams and all that might have been. I love you all and miss you so and I'll always be nearby, My body's gone forever but my spirit will never die. And so you all must go on now live one day at a time, Just understand, God did not take me from you He only took my hand.

Hey Butchy Today is your 24th birthday we all wish you were here to celebrate it with us. But I guess that's not possible now, which is hard to say. Just a few weeks ago my dad and me went on a bike run, the whole time I was wishing you could be on the next bike over enjoying your self. To me you were, you were right there beside me keeping me and my dad safe. That's whole time I was thinking you were right there beside me I had a good feeling. I wish you could be here to come over, come watch all my ball games, but I guess you are always here and always at my games. Cause your watching me from up above and your in my heart at all times. Well I'm going to get off of here!! We ALL miss you very much!! I wish I could see you right now but the only way I can see you now is from pictures, they are all around our house. Well I'll talk to you later!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!! Love, Tater Bug (Taylor Nicole Page)

I love you to go swimming in town pool with me, because you um take me shooting at the bridge. I like you because you took me to your house to stay the night. I love you because you went in and did you best. I love you because you took me to my favorite place Chucky Cheese. You took me in grandma's pasture where wild beans were growing. I want you to take me to Redfield riding the motorcycle. You took me to Wal-Mart to buy me toys & stuff. Your the bestest uncle ever. Happy Birthday Uncle Butch! Love Tristan

Hey Sweetie, You were on my mind alot yesterday. Hard to believe this war has been going on for 5 years now. Its really sad to think about all the families that have gone through what we have & even sadder that there are going to be many more going through it. My heart goes out to all of them. Wished it would all end, but I don't think it will anytime soon, until then we have to keep praying for their safe return. I have been seeing alot of flags flying @ parades & ballgames & I can never look at one without thinking of you & all you stood for. It makes my heart ache, yet it makes me proud of you too. Please continue to watch over your buddies & the rest of our soldiers, they need you. God be with all of you! I love & miss you dearly Butchy! All My Love Aunt Herman (Cheryl Hall)

Butch, I can't get over how much I miss you. You have been in my thoughts a lot lately and I can't help but think what I'd do if I saw you again. My mom keeps me updated on your family through your aunt but I have been thinking a lot about your mom too. I am planning to be home over Christmas and will have to try to stop by and see her after I come see you. A friend of mine stopped by my house the other day and saw your picture. She turned to me and asked, "Laura, where are you hiding this fine looking guy? Saving him for yourself?" I couldn't help but laugh a little because I know what a kick you would have gotten out of that comment. I still tell stories of some of the crazy things we did. It always makes me smile. I can't believe that I am getting ready to graduate law school; Menda is a Sheriff's deputy (can you believe it?); and Tanya is working for Wal-Mart. I was thinking the other day about swimming at the quarry and Marzoff. Don't ask me why, maybe because it was snowing and I wanted to be some place warm. I remembered the time your keys got locked in your truck during a party. I was also thinking about you jumping off the bluffs. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss you and my world is a little emptier because you're not in it. I got a new cell-phone over the summer and was transferring numbers to it and came across your old number. I almost went ahead and transferred it to the new phone just so I could feel like I might be able to call you. Crazy, I know. Anyway, I just wanted to say I love you and I miss you! Send your mom and family some love for me too. Love Laura

Hey Babe, Christmas is almost here & like always I can't go through a holiday w/o thinking about you. You are always on my mind a lot, but the holidays just seem a little tougher. I remember you boys going out hunting or just "country cruzn" after big family get togethers. You always found something to do whether it was good or bad. We used to say things would be really crazy when all you boys got to be teens (all 11 of you) running around getting into mischief, all of you learning to drive & have girlfriends & it was crazy at times. I'm sure you guys did alot of stuff us parents will never know about (LOL) just like we did to our own parents. : ) Then some of you started getting into your 20's & couldn't wait to become "legal" so you could go out. I can remember hearing a lot of 3,2 flu stories and witnessing several events (LOL) You boys had fun when you got together. Now, most of them are daddies & having their own family memories to make & I can't help but think about you & what it would be like for you to be here going through the same thing w/ them. It makes my heart ache, because I know you would have been the best daddy a kid could of ever had. Life just isn't fair. I'm sure the boys will still go country cruzn out to visit you after our get togethers, it has become a ritual to some of them. Brent loves & misses you so much. He carries your picture & your pistol w/ him all the time. I guess its his way of making you feel near to him. We love you & miss you dearly. Have a Merry Christmas Butchy! Love Aunt Herman

Hey Butchy, It's your aunt Janet. I've been thinkin a lot about you lately and thought I'd write a little to you cause well, it'll make me feel better, I hope. I wish you were here to make your Aunt Cheryl feel better! She has just went through a horrible thing. She had to have her leg amputated April 9th up in K.U.. You know she has went through a lot in the last eight years with that leg and now that it's gone, she may have infection again in it. I've tried to be strong for her through this but baby, Aunt Janet aint as tough as she use to believe had a hard time keepin it together. I just wish you were here with your smilin face and give us a big hug and remind us that we can do this. You, Jim and your Uncle Steve are so missed it's unbearable to me and I can't stand the thought of loosing Cheryl too, so can you please talk to God a little and see what he can do for her? I've been doing it too and will continue doing so. Let's help her Butchy! I Love You So Much and miss you very badly!!!!! Love you Baby! Your Aunt Janet

Not a week goes by where I do not think about SPC Butch Hall and the great young man he was. On one of the last missions our platoon performed, we had a great conversation about using the G.I bill to go to college. Sometimes, I can picture him as a college student, studying criminal justice and training to become a police officer. It brings me great sadness to know that will never happen. He was a great young man and an excellent soldier. I continue to pray for all of those who experience the loss of not sharing life with Butch. CPT Vivek Kshetrapal

Hey baby it's me. Wow I can't believe its been this long. I just talked to your mom, It was good to hear her voice on a day like today. I sat last night and looked at pictures of us. I couln't belive Baylee was so small when we got together. You would be amazed on how much she has grown. I sat there thinking of what our life would have been like together and I know it would have been amazing. I wish I had that. I can't find anything that compares to you and me. I want you back, I want our family together. I miss you sooooooo much. We would have been so happy together. Baylee calls you her soldier. She looks at pictures and still knows who you are. You should have had no worries that she would forget because she hasn't. There has never been anyone else that has cared as much as you did. You would have been the best daddy that she could ever ask for. I will make sure that she knows you were a part of her life. And she will be proud to know that you are her soldier. Never will I forget you and what you mean to me. You will always be a part of us, that will never change. You are the only one that has ever showed me true love and I have yet to find that again and Im not sure wether I ever will. I also have to thank you for the night that I went to the cemetary to visit you. Thank you for letting me know that you were there with me. I love you forever and always. You are never forgotten, you are always here with us. I LOVE YOU BABY- YOU & ME FOREVER

Butch, I still think of you all the time. I have moved to Houston, TX of all places for work. I keep thinking that I'll make new friends and meet new people but I know that I'll never meet another person like you. I wish I could give (and get) a hug from you. I can picture your smile even as I type this, even though you always wanted to look so serious in pictures. I was thinking the other day that we will have been out of school 8 years this year. That doesn't seem possible. I can't help but wonder where you would be and what you would be doing now or picture seeing you at our ten-year reunion. The world was robbed of someone special in you. Missing you, Laura

I chose a memorial bracelet with a random name on it from Afghanistan to remind me to keep in touch with my cousin, who was an Army Reservist from Kansas beginning a tour in Afghanistan. I wore David's name on my wrist for a couple years before I saw his picture in an exhibit in Arlington, and knew it was time to give him up. There are certain people in the military who outshine the rest, and who serve as role models for the rest of us. David certainly sounds like he was one of them. The pain never really goes away, but I hope by now it has dulled enough that you can feel the pride that should be yours for making such an incredible sacrifice to the world. It was an honor to carry him with me. Thank you.

06:29:46

It has been 4 years now but it seems like yesterday. I read the many heartfelt sentiments, terrific comments on how awesome you were, how much you are missed and it is easy to see how many lives you touched. It makes me realize that too often we take the people in our lives for granite and don't express to them how important they are to us. We think about how great they are and we may even tells others, but often, it seems awkward to say it directly to that person. I treasure the last time we saw each other because I know you left this world with our last words being "I love you". You are gone but still very much alive in our memories and hearts - I love you and I miss you!
