Subject:Never Forgotten

4 years ago we lost a dear friend and brother, Jordan Haerter. 4 years seems like such a long time,in any other situation it would be,but the memory of a friend never fades...especially when they sacrificed themselves to save many others. Jordan,you will forever be missed!

Subject:Lives woven together

My 18 year old son is at the USNA and will end his first year as a plebe in 6 weeks. His desire is to become a Marine officer at graduation, even thought I have asked him not to go that route because of the dangers of being a Marine. His desire to become a Marine is my fault because I became a Marine at the tender age of 18 and have always felt proud to be part of such a brotherhood. Sons like to be like their fathers and fathers always like to protect their sons. My son is always in my thoughts and prayers. Today I was thinking about Jordan, remembering that it will be almost 4 years since he so valiantly gave his life for his Marine brothers. My son got to hold Jordan's Navy Cross medal last year and got to meet his mom. He was so happy to learn that he was distantly related to Jordan's mom through marriage and so proud of Jordan's actions. I think that day sealed his desire to one day become a Marine. We all wished we had met each other while Jordan was still around. Funny how our lives are woven together!!! Semper Fi!!! Brothers, to us what we do in life echoes in eternity (Gladiator).

I came across your memorial site while researching my fathers service. He also was a member of the 1/9 in 1966-1967. Thank you so much for your sacrifice. My thoughts and prayers are with you. My God give you comfort and peace.

Subject:Always Faithful

Courage is the mental quality that recognizes fear of danger, but enables a man to proceed in the face of it with calmness and firmness. Your courage and unselfishness helped save the lives of 50+ Marines and members of law enforcement. We were honored to meet your mother and father this Veterans Day and learn of your story. Mr and Mrs Haerter, your son's sacrifice will not be forgotten, and as ordered, we WILL give them hell.

Very Respectfully,
Navy Officer Candidate School Class 03-12

Rest in Peace brother. Your last 6 seconds of life will always be remembered. I'm going to read LtGen Kellys speech at our cut cutting this year for all the veterans and Navy personnel I work with here on Okinawa so that they will all know who you are and what you did to save 150 lives. Semper Fi.

I was in Iraq at the time that this happened, my unit was stationed in Fallujah and preparing to split with half going to Ramadi. When we heard this story it showed us why we were there. When LCpl Haerter and Cpl. Yale stood their ground and continued firing to protect their fellow Marines it made me understand what being a Marine is all about. I am sorry for the loss that the families suffered but thank God they were there to defend their fellow Marines or the casualties certainly would have been worse. I have been telling the story of LCpl Haeter and Cpl Yates since I returned as a testament to what being a Marine means to. Along with Cpl. Dunham and Sgt. Meyers there are no finer examples. Semper Fidelis and God bless.

Subject:Gone but not forgotten

My brother, Sgt. Cody A. Peterson (at the time was LCpl) was in Ramadi with the 1/9 Weapons Co. when Jordan was killed. My family and I never got the opportunity to meet Jordan, like we have so many of the other 1/9 guys through the years but his death was still a shock and a loss to us all because we're all part of a bigger family: USMC FAMILY. I now reside in East Moriches, NY and have ridden through Sag Harbor and have seen the bridge dedicated to Jordan. What a sight; it is very humbling, brings me great pride and breaks my heart all at the same time. To Jordan's family and friends, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

We stand in awe as we consider Jordan's bravery and dedication to duty. He is a shining example of the best America has to offer. Those of us who have served are proud to be counted his brother. I know that God has a special place for men of such character. To his parents and loved ones I express my deepest condolences for your loss. May God bless you and comfort you.

Subject:In humble gratitude for Jordan

A long time ago in Vietnam I served with many young baby faced Maines. People of every generation throughout time have worried about the next generations character and moral fiber when the world's circumstances challenge freedom and humanities sensibilities of decency and compassion.
Then we discover and sadly are reminded that to keep what we just simply take for granted comes at such a very high sacrifice of so very few, for so many that will never know or had the privilage to have known these so very normal and yet, young men/boys that have in our history rise at a very precise moment in time and history and show the depth of personal character and courage that we could have never imagined.
A parent, brother, sister, grandparent, aunt, uncle life long friend or passing aquaintance upon hearing of such loss and the circumstances the shock ripples to, thru and past ones most inner core. It is then that one late at night as you lay safely in your warm bed you find that it is impossible to fathom such singular courage and character.
We are not to worry for our future or fear the loss of our humanity because of such phenomenal young men as we find / found we had the great fortune of having in Jordan.

From a humbled and forever grateful " survivor ". It is the heroes. ... That we lose.

Thank you for instilling, even if unknowingly, as you raised Jordan .. That courage of his convictions that matured and blossomed in a lifetime in 6 very long, yet very short seconds.

Jordan has a very special place sitting in that very special place God all mighty sets aside in heaven for our MARINES..........

Thank YOU for creating and giving US ALL Jordan if only for such very short time. Our world is better place having had him amongst us.

Hi. My brother is a Marine and this website is so touching. Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories. I am sorry for your loss. I would imagine it's a pain and loss that will never truly go away. I hope you can find a place of peace. Thank you for his service and sacrifice. We are so lucky to be Americans and have such brave men serve our country so we can live in peace. I feel so blessed to have a brother with the strength and character to be a Marine. Your son seems to the same as my brother. God bless your family and the U.S.

May these fine Marines rest in eternal peace. The two folks that died near the palace were just innocent bystanders, these brave men were the Warriors for Freedom and Protection, in fine tradition of the Marines, and I'm sure Smedley Butler would be proud of their actions for others!

Subject:Chance meeting

I was just at Camp Lejeune these past few days to watch my daughter, PFC Harrington graduate MCT. While there I met a Marine in town standing with a cane. I struck up a conversation with him and found out he was with Weapons Company, 2nd Bn, 8th Marine Regiment. I too had been stationed with 2nd Bn, 8th Marine Regiment and had been to both Grenada and Beirut, Lebanon in 1983-1984. As it turned out, this Marine was one of the Marines that had been wounded from the force of the blast that day. LCpl Haerter and Cpl Yale had saved this mans life. I am deeply honored to have made a connection with two true hero's, however distant that connection may be. I lost friends in Beirut, these two men saved men in Iraq from a similar fate. God bless you and Semper Fidelis Marines.
