Craig, Brother Not a day goes by I don't think of you kid. From going to basic to annual trainings together we had a lot of good times! Back then I didn't know about the "DEMONS" you where fighting and I wish I did, I wish I could of fought them with you! I have had some very dark and difficult times I almost quit, I almost gave up but I look down on my wrist and see that bracelet with your name on it and I say I can't cause I know you wouldn't want me too brother. All the times you would drive that black Pontiac to drill and we would talk about what you where doing to it next or playing football in the motor pool. I miss you bro and I hope where ever you are your at peace now! B/c of you I became a Suicide Prevention Leader so I could help people who had to fight the demons you did. I love you bro.....FLY HIGH Brother- SSG BOYER!

I was Craig's manager at Valvoline for over a year about 7 years ago. Craig was always busy with his family. They would come visit him once in a while and you could see Craig loved his lil guy! But when he came in to work he was always smiling and was he a riot! Craig was always the life of the workplace and would be the first one to help anyone in need. One time he told me he had a package being shipped to work. Little did I know a 18 wheeler stops in the middle of Wyoming ave and unloads his "package"(transmission on a huge pallet) while blocking traffic. Craig was always caring and compassionate and always a great friend. You will be missed buddy!

Craig, I've tried to write this several times now, and I just cannot find the words to adequately express my feelings. When we first started working together we quickly became friends and you quickly became one of very few people I consider a genuine close friend. Over the years we've had so many good times and memories and I just can't fathom not being able to have more. I sincerely hope you have found peace my friend. I miss you.

Harger, when I first met you, I saw a goodness in you that is rare in most others. You had one of the purest most beautiful auras I have ever seen. You were my “go to” soldier. It didn’t matter what needed to be done or when, I knew I could always count on you. All the sergeants knew you were the soldier they could rely on to get the job done. I remember being so excited when you were finally added to my squad, it meant I didn’t have to keep stealing you away from your other squad. Beyond being an outstanding soldier, you were my battle buddy, my friend. In February of 2013 my dad died. We had our annual training that June. It was you who stood at the back of a Humvee with me, listening and consoling me through the most difficult time in my life. I will cherish forever all the moments we spent chatting about everything and nothing at all. I will miss our inside jokes, especially the one we share with Venedem. “Harger, why the hell did you park so close?!” I will miss my chauffeur at lunch time but mostly I will miss my friend, my Harger. You will always be in my thoughts.
