    Hi Scott,

    I served with your brother in Ramada, state side, and while at Norwich. The memory of your brother and our other friends that passed frequent my thoughts. Steven was an incredible soldier and great person.

    Thank you for posting this podcast. It was an emotional but nice way to start off the day, in remembrance of Steven.

    I worked with Steve at J.H.Cohn,at the time of his deployment. We were all looking forward to welcoming him back to our team. He will always remain in my heart. Thank you Scott for sharing your memories of Steve and your personal story. God Bless.

    Scott,
    This is a wonderful way to preserve Steven’s memory. The more memories that are shared, the more ears there are to listen, eyes to read and minds to carry the memories. The more often his name is spoken and a moment created, the more vivid his memory remains.

    I have only been involved in Hero remembrance initiatives since 2012 and in that short time I am slowly becoming aquainted with the stories of CT’s Fallen Veterans. I may never reach my goal of comfortably knowing each Gold Star Family but it is my personal resilience to patiently listen, to offer support and to accept the gifts of remembrance in the order and time that they are presented to me. You have gone a long way in providing insight into Steven’s character, as well as your own.

    I have grown particularly close with a small number of CT Gold Star Families, as I learn about their Heroes. Though I am always here for them, I expect no reciprocation and apply no pressure for information. Instead, I support them as best as one person can and the information is gifted by their will only.
    I can tell you that it is a privilege to be in ears range, when stories of Heros are shared and your podcast, with the text Included, is no exception.

    If only the concept of your work herein was common practice, I believe a tremendous impact on veteran mental health would be the result. Holding these intense memories privately, in silence, along with the pain of loss is overwhelming. Sharing the memories can be sedative for the pain and prevent the need for prescribed treatments.

    Your perspective also weighs in heavy on the value of family and how important it is to preserve family at all costs, especially when the most devastating life circumstances remain fresh in memory.
    One of the most inspiring Pod Casts available!! Great work!!
