Still praying for your family. For some, thereโ€™s no getting over, or getting through, thereโ€™s just going on. My time in the corps was over 45 years ago, but sometimes it seems as real as today. Just keep going on.

When you got to heaven Kareem I know you were met by my Marine dad with the strongest handshake . When it comes to our military guys you all have a special place in our hearts. My niece Laramie was your friend. Now you live forever.

I would like to express my extreme condolences to this family and especially the mother and father.of Lance corporal Kareem Nikoui.
Semper Fidelis means always faithful. I come from a career marine family. My brother was killed in Vietnam. Anytime we lose a brother we all feel the pain. I'd like to let you know I was there when they brought the body home from Ontario Airport and through your small little community of Norco California and since that day I have never seen anything like what I saw yesterday . What respect, what beauty, what love from a whole community of people, neighbors and strangers. The beauty in having a whole Community to support and rally around you was an emotional site. May God shine his light upon you and your son. Semper Fi and rest in peace.

I wanted to express my sincerest condolences to you and your family. My heart breaks for you at the loss of Kareem. Your Son was a hero,and I know others share in your loss. May he find a gentle peace and rest. May the Almighty comfort you at this time. Please remember the World remembers what took place on that day in Afghanistan, and we will not make them responsible forget. I live in North Carolina, but just had to send you a note. I have written to both my Senators expressing such.
