SGT. Stephen C. Strauchen, USMC MP "Company C" currently in Iraq, is my brother and my hero, not only because he is selflessly serving our country but because he is who he is.
To me, my family, and his friends he is a man with the heart that could envelope the world. His kindness, intelligence, dedication, and love for all who surround him, not only makes unique but dearly missed as well. He is my brother and my best friend.
I miss you big brother, be safe and come home soon.
