Cory was the kindest of people - he carried an aura of friendship and humility and graced all he knew with a sense of peace. Cory''s contagious smile will remain my most cherished memory of him.

Though I only knew Cory a few months in Iraq I found him to be a warm hearted, good natured, well disciplined Soldier and man. I remember spending time with him shooting the breeze, and of course who could forget camel spider fights.

Cory was one of my best friends and was my roommate throughout our deployment. I have never known a more compassionate, kind and loyal person. He is like a brother to me and his smile, loyalty and kindness will never be forgotten. TLH.

Every time I saw Cory, he has a big smile on his face, never had a bad thing to say about anyone, and nobody could ever say anything bad about you. You were an all around good soldier and friend. RIP
