    There is a bond formed between me that served together. Over time and years that bond is unbreakable. We were not just friends and comrades. We are more than brothers ever. There may not be blood between us but we all were willing to spill blood for each other above all else. Many years passed before I found my demon dawgs again. When we found each other it was as if no time had passed. The respect, love and peace of mind was and will be strong as ever As the dawg doc I had a special connection to you boys and still do. No worries Timmy we got the watch now. You just watch our 6. Until we meet at the big chow hall in the sky we will miss you every day. Until Valhalla brother. Love and miss you. Our brothers we served with along with myself send our love and prayers to the Gerlesky family and all who are touched by this sudden development.
