This guy was like an inspiration to me. I remember talking to him over Offtopic while he was deployed to Iraq in early 2005. He seemed like an overall badass but also a humble religious man. From late 2005 all the way through the end of 2006, I was deployed to Kuwait. So I had little access to Offtopic at the time. But when I came back, he was gone from the forum. Or at least I haven't seen him around. It's been like three years since I last talked to him.
