Our Hero. .Our Soldier,Our Angel...

This online memorial was created in loving memory of Nicholas Ray Carnes, Nicholas was born on February 1st 1982. I remember getting to come home from school early that day, I sat on the couch awaiting his arrival.Here come the Proud parents holding their baby boy. We knew he was a shining star as soon as we seen him, Nick had one green eye and one blue eye, we always knew he was special, Nicholas always shinned no matter what. Nicholas did well in school ,he knew he wanted to do something with his life. Nicholas set out to do it he would get it done.. He was a very accomplished young man.. Nicholas went on from High School to join the National Guard at the age of 17, He knew he wanted to do this.. Then nicholas went on to work for B&B riverboats after being there for awhile and doing all jobs he decided he wanted to get his captains license to drive the big boats, He loved the river and the boats.. He did receive his license... Nicholas had the option to get out of the national guard , he chose to sign on for another six years he was so dedicated to serve our country. Nicholas being himself excelled and was promoted to a Staff SSGT. He always was a Leader, Nicholas had lots of dreams and had a great life planned ahead .. Why he was taken from us we will never understand.. I guess god needed a strong angel to be with him.. We Miss him so much and daily life is so hard now knowing he is not coming home to live out his dreams.. Please Remember To Thank a U.S Soldier for Freedom is Free Because Of The Brave and that is our Nicholas. God Bless all of our soldiers... We Love You Nicholas and You Are Forever In Our Hearts.... Please sign Nicholas's guest book and let us know you came to visit. We will remember Nicholas forever. He is Forever in our hearts... We Miss You So...

Thunder From Above Lightning From Below A Soldiers Last Request I have walked with my brothers In a cruel foreign land I have watch them fall dying Felt their blood with my hands. A deep breath was taken As death drew ever near A soldier lay dying His last words were clear. Go tell my mother I am still her son I have fought a good fight Now my part is done. Go tell my father I have made a brave stand I fought like a soldier And died like a man. Go tell my sisters And my Beautiful wife It’s not death I’m dreading It’s being absent from their life. So go tell America Where liberty and justice are so dear To live and love their freedom For we have paid for it here. OPERATION ENDURING FREEDOM WE LOVE U NICHOLAS RAY CARNES 1982-2007

The Final Roll Call


We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.

We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.

We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.

Now all we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we'll never part.

God has  you in his keepiing,
We have you in our HEARTS!!!!

 

The Ultimate Sacrifice He Made For Us

Something He Sent Me ,, Wanted To Share

Just wanted to take a few minutes and say hello and let you know that I was thinking about you. I miss everyone so much. I can not wait to see everyone again. Unfortunately it will be the last time for a year. I know that everyone hates me being away and the fact that I am going to Afghanistan. I just hope that everyone knows that I am doing this for them. Whether the war can be justified or not. When I look at the flag I see thousands of people who have fought for our freedom and thousands that have died for it as well. I am thankful for those who have gone before me to ensure that I have all the freedoms that we do. Without them we would not have anything. It is something that I must do to ensure that my children and your children are given the same freedoms that we have and help them to understand that freedom is not free. It is something that we will fight for until the end of time. I am sorry for going on and on. I miss you guys. I can not wait to see you. Love, Nicholas
