He said how proud you where to be wanting to serve and a airborne ranger and he remember how he like your conversations over a few drinks. You have been gone for a long time, but not forgotten. Peace be with you.
Two friends and family who loved him
Thank you for your service as an Airborne Qualified Medical Corpsman. Thank you for the lives you saved. It is now fall, and as the seasons pass, it is important to remember you all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

Remembering an American Hero
Dear CPL Michael Joseph Fordi, sir
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.
With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.
