I had the chance to serve with HM3 Fralish in Kuwait. He was an extremely dedicated person. He loved the fact that he was serving his country. He was one of the only people who volunteered to go to iraq out of our unit. He will definately be missed and never forgotten...

We had the pleasure of working with HM3 Fralish back onboard NMCP. He was so GUNG-HO and ready to go with the Marines. I just saw him in January and just found out about about 20 minutes ago!! He was a good friend that will truly be missed and never forgotten.

I had the honor to be his Company Commander as a student at FMTB (Camp Pendleton). He motivated me to keep my head up. I like Doc Callinan above have a tremendous amount of love and prayer for his family. A great American Hero.
