Cpl. Jeffrey B. Starr:

"I don't regret going, everybody dies but few get to do it for something as important as freedom. It may seem confusing why we are in Iraq, it's not to me. I'm here helping these people, so that they can live the way we live. Not have to worry about tyrants or vicious dictators. To do what they want with their lives. To me that is why I died. Others have died for my freedom, now this is my mark."

2nd Lt. Mark Daily:

"I joined the fight because it occurred to me that many modern day 'humanists' who claim to possess a genuine concern for human beings throughout the world are in fact quite content to allow their fellow 'global citizens' to suffer under the most hideous state apparatuses and conditions. Their excuses used to be my excuses."

1st Lt. Travis Manion:

"Travis spoke at length, easing the minds of many team members. He was very proud of being a warrior, and the warrior spirit. I remember him saying that it would dishonor a man as a warrior if you did not continue the fight, despite the pain and loss. We have turned back to his words to help us through this time."

Captain Dan Eggers:

"As my classmates and I endured our 'knob' year, we were constantly reminded of the recently graduated seniors, specifically Dan Eggers," Maxwell said. "Although I never met Dan, I felt like I knew him by the end of my first year. He was loved by his classmates and was a legend to cadets like myself who followed in his footsteps."

Ensign Billy Martin:

"Dearest,
...
At this point you realize that there is a lot more to flying than most people think and a thrill comes over you as you feel that you're a part of it. Just being upstairs, cruising around looking at the beautiful green patches that make up the earth and contrasting it with the sky of blue tinted with red and yellow where the sun peeps through clouds makes you feel, 'this is where I belong.'

I'd like instructing for a while, but when the months passed and I kept hearing of what our boys are doing over there, I know the urge would become so great to get out there with them and do some damage myself. I'd like being an instructor so we could be together and enjoy some of the happiness we've been waiting for. Then like any other American, I'd want to get out there and do my part. You understand how I feel, don't you hon?

When victory is ours then I'll be able to come home to my little wife whom I adore with all of my heart and try to give her all of the happiness she so richly deserves. I'll feel proud to know that I can see why millions of my fellows feel as I do; this is worth fighting for. It's worth more than just a life, for a nation to settle down from the turbulence incurred in the past years, so that girls and fellows may live as they should. May God be with all of them.

Guess I've said enough, so I'll end with my undying love for you dear. Good day until the morrow.

Love always,

Billy"

carbamazepine increases tramadol metabolism and because of the seizure risk associated with tramadol concomitant administration of Ultram and carbamazepine is not recommended Use With Quinidine Tramadol is metabolized to M1 by CYP2D6 Quinidine is a selective inhibitor of that isoenzyme so that concomitant administration of quinidine and Ultram results in increased concentrations of tramadol and reduced concentrations of M1 The clinical consequences of these findings are unknown In vitro drug interaction studies in human liver microsomes indicate that tramadol has no effect on quinidine metabolism Use With Inhibitors of CYP2D6 In vitro drug interaction studies in human liver microsomes indicate that concomitant administration with inhibitors of CYP2D6 such as fluoxetine paroxetine and amitriptyline could result in some inhibition of the metabolism of tramadol Use With Cimetidine Concomitant administration of Ultram with cimetidine does not result in clinically significant changes in tramadol pharmacokinetics Therefore no alteration of the Ultram dosage regimen is recommended Use With MAO Inhibitors Interactions with MAO Inhibitors due to interference with detoxification mechanisms have been reported for some centrally acting drugs see WARNINGS Use With MAO Inhibitors Use With Digoxin and Warfarin Post-marketing surveillance has revealed rare reports of digoxin toxicity and alteration of warfarin effect including elevation of prothrombin times Carcinogenesis Mutagenesis Impairment of Fertility A slight but statistically significant increase in two common murine tumors pulmonary and hepatic was observed in a mouse carcinogenicity study particularly in aged mice Mice were dosed orally up to 30 mg kg 90 mg m2 or times the maximum daily human dosage of 246 mg m2 for approximately two years although the study was not done with the Maximum Tolerated Dose This finding is not believed to suggest risk in humans No such finding occurred in a rat carcinogenicity study dosing orally up to 30 mg kg 180 mg m2 or times the maximum daily human dosage Tramadol was not mutagenic in the following assays Ames Salmonella microsomal activation test CHO HPRT mammalian cell
