"Met with Iraqi Christian Refugee families in Jordan in October 2014 who had escaped from Isis only a few weeks earlier. One Iraqi man we met with, Adnan Mettee, was from Mosul and told me about an American friend of his named SPC Corey Shea. He said Corey was a great help to him and his family in Mosel. Adnan and his family had to leave Mosul very quickly and they were not able to take much with them. Adnan did have a small folder of important papers and in this folder was a bulletin from Corey’s Memorial Service that was held in Mosul on Nov 19th 2008. He had another bulletin for the Memorial of Sgt. Jose Regalado that was also held that day. I told Adnan that I would try to make contact with Corey’s family to tell them that I had met a friend from Mosul that knew him. He asked me to tell his family members that Corey was a very brave and helpful friend. Adnan also said that he prays for Corey’s family members back in the USA. I took a photo of the Memorial bulletin with the camera on my cell phone and I can forward it to you if someone would like to see it. My email is KENSAVOIE11@yahoo.com"
"Just wanted to share the following.... While I didn't have the pleasure of knowing SPC Corey Shea I thought of him and his family today (May 24, 2014), as I ran 'The 7th Annual Cpl Christopher G. Scherer "I DID THE GRID" Run/ Walk' in Northport, NY'. This was the first time I signed up for the 4 mile run that is held in honor of Cpl Christopher Scherer and all the men and women who have given their lives in service. On each runners bib number there were four names listed of soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice. At the end of the race after passing the finish line, each runner rang a bell four times in honor of each of the names on their bib. So... I just wanted you to know that SPC Corey Shea was one of the soldiers that was named on my running bib today. Each step I made during the race was dedicated to Corey and the 3 other soldiers that I was running in honor of. I sincerely hope the Shea family receives this message to know that he was thought of today. God Bless"
