As we are saddened by the loss of two fine men, we are grateful that they were willing to serve our country in a role they knew would put them in harm’s way. They have served all of us who are able to live in peace because of their sacrifice. We salute them and mourn their loss with their families. May their families find comfort in the examples they set for us. Our prayers are with you.

These two young men, as well as all of our soldiers who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, are heroes in every sense of the word. As a parent of a soldier, I grieve for the ultimate sacrifice they have made and for their loved ones. I am grateful for their selfless service and the contributions they have made toward the war on terror. May God in all of His might lift them up and welcome them into the kingdom of heaven.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to both families who lost wonderful sons — two very courageous men who were fighting to keep us free. When we see them in heaven we can tell them, and all the soldiers who have lost their lives, how proud we are of them. God bless them and their families. We are praying for all of you.

I am sincerely sorry for the loss of these two brave men. I wish I could wrap their mothers and family members in my arms. I cringe to think what they have endured. May God be with their families now. Know that someone who you have never met is praying for you.

We send our love and deep sorrow for your loss. Our brave soldiers are in our prayers every day! Words fail us. Our hearts are saddened. We will honor your sons forever. I pray that God, in his mercy, took them to heaven before the pain. Thank you for giving us your sons. What a tragedy. What a dark day in America.

Looking into the young faces of those fine young men, I can't begin to express my sorrow for their families or my pride in the honorable way they served their country and its citizens. We are fighting a barbaric enemy and if we don't stop them now our children and grandchildren will inherit a terrible world. These young men knew this and made the ultimate sacrifice toward a better world for all of us.

There is nothing I can say to you that begins to express my deepest sympathy for you and your loved ones. Your loss is the loss of our country. We honor and stand by you; we salute and cherish you. Your sons are sons, brothers, husbands, and uncles to us all. They will never be forgotten.

I am so saddened to learn of your beloved sons' deaths. The nation was hoping and praying for a much better ending to their disappearance. I am very angry about the way they died and it only makes my resolve to annihilate the the terrorists stronger. Both Kristian and Tom are heroes in my book. May God give you the strength and courage to endure your grief and some comfort in knowing that we share your pain.

Words cannot describe how proud I am of our military. Our soldiers represent the best of America. I realize everyday that if it weren’t for their bravery and commitment our freedoms would be at grave risk.

My family and I send our deepest heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the parents of these two men and all our service people. May God grant them peace at this time for the ultimate loss they suffer. It makes me so angry that we are losing our children to this ruthless enemy. I thank all of our soldiers for my freedom and the freedom of my children here at home.

Please know that you are daily in our thoughts and prayers. We cannot possibly know what you are going through because each person's experience is so different. With several generations of military folks, we have experienced the wondering and loneliness but not the loss of a loved one.

Thank you for your sacrifice.
