I was reading the newspaper and saw your son's notice. Thank you for raising such a excellent son, I am sure that your hearts are broken and you miss him very much. I wanted to also thank you for his service to his country as it touches all of us as freedom isn't free ,"greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."
John 15:13.

Heekin was an outstanding Soldier and extremely motivated about whatever he did. Very sad to hear about the news.
Rest easy and we will see you on the other side.

I would like to share my most favorite memory of Charlie Heekin for the friends and family that hadn't seen it on Facebook.

Believe it or not, HE was literally the best birthday present ever.

So it was 2010 I believe, and at this time I left the active duty Army a year prior. We kept in touch, but like most people when you leave the brotherhood of the Army, you don't see any of your old brothers.

At that
