"Mike and I started our Army careers together in the Army Medical Department Office Basic Course many years ago and we were later classmates in the Army-Baylor graduate program. Mike was always a pleasure to be around and was a committed Army officer. May God comfort his family."
"Mike was a true patriot who served his nation with pride, determination and conviction. He and I along with 34 other officers attended The Baylor Program for an entire year. Mike was academically gifted, personable, a great study partner, and a good friend to us all. We finished the course and embarked on our separate careers but we all still cherished that year studying, competing in sports against the faculty and enjoying life. Mike loved life but God took him so early. We will miss him and ask God to comfort his family. Army Strong, Brother Mike! Keith Gallagher, Brigadier General (Retired), US Army & Baylor Class of 1989"

From his Christian brother,
"Anne, I didn't get a chance to meet your husband, but knowing you he had to be a great man. May you and the rest of the family find comfort in the Lord. I love you my classmate, my friend and my sister in Christ!"
"Michael was a good friend and classmate in the Army-Baylor University Graduate Program in Health Administration. He excelled as a Soldier-Leader, one who cared for those who relied on him. Hooah! I will miss him. Major General David Rubenstein, US Army Retired."
