From some of my first days in the
Military, Justin is in them. I would have never have known him so well if it wasn’t for Frankie bringing us together. Early in life we spent a lot of time together, both him and I and in a group with amazing friends and brothers. I always remember he was such an odd duck! We came from such various backgrounds that if it wasn’t for our first deployment, we would have never bonded in the way we did! We shared meals, tents and a ton of memories! Some amazing! Some not so much..... one memory is sitting safely under a wing of a F-15E talking about how Frankie had a haunted house! I also remember sitting around with him, talking about life, love and the world in a 130 degree Middle East heat or over a cold drink and dinner in someone’s backyard. He was an amazing person who changed my own life story and will continue to do for years to come. “They say you die twice, once when you pass, the second time when no one says your name again...”. I swear to you brother- I will never stop saying your name. Miss you, love you, until Valhalla!
