I didn't know Joshua, but I am familiar with several soldiers from the 185th. I remember the day this group of men and women departed Wayne. Wow, what pride was extended to all. I also remember hearing of the loss of a member of this unit. I wish to thank Joshua for his ultimate service; his family for continuing to pass the pride of Josh's service onward. Great American pride! NVH Employee

Josh went down to the Legion Hall today to see the traveling memorial wall, it's nice, sad though that there are so many on it and so many are so young.It is a way for us not to forget the sacrifices all of you made for us.RIP
