Almar will be sadly missed but remembered as a hero in every sense of the word, not just by those who knew him but by those who have only heard of him. He was a remarkable young man with a drive and ambition nearly unmatched. He had a way about him and a dedication that drove him to be the best he could be. He was a true soldier to the end. The world is now short yet another amazing individual who had a bright and shining future that ended all too soon. All gave some, some gave all. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, comrades, and friends of 2nd Lt. Almar "Fitz" Fitzgerald, as well as those families with loved ones in a war zone or who have lost someone dear to them.
