    I did not know Michael personally, but I have had the honor of helping put together this memorial/foundation website. I have been humbled by the things I have seen so far and I am grateful that America still has young men like this, that are willing to risk it all and defend not only our freedoms but our future freedoms and way of life. I want to thank the family of this great individual for letting me contribute and be a part of this process. I hope this site helps you carry on Michael’s memory and helps in turning the foundation into what you invision it can and should be. May Michael and his fallen brothers in arms rest in peace, and may his legacy live on through this foundation.

    Never met Michael before, but met his father Charlie at the Taste of Key West here in Ridley Park at the fundraiser for the Michael Strange Foundation. We only spoke briefly and I had the chance to thank him for Micheal’s service and sacrafice for our freedom. They say the apple never falls far from the tree, so I know now that Michael must have been a strong person. God’s speed and love to his family and friends. May the Foundation become a constant reminder to those who benefit everyday because of Heros like Michael and may it give his family an avenue to heal and help others. Please keep me informed of future Foundation events, would like to continue to support and help.

  9. Tom Riddle:

    First I would like to express my Deepest Sympathy to the families of our Nation’s Fallen Heroes.

    I personally didn’t know Michael as a young man, but Have known His father for over 23 years.

    Charlie I’m sure they would say:

    “Death is only a temporary separation, and in it they say to all their loved Ones, Family, Friends and Countrymen, We will all meet again soon. Until then remember we have loved you All. Keep in your hearts and memories a special place for all who serve in the United States Armed Forces, and never forget the sacrifices they make out of their love for you.”

    Written with a painful heart.

    Reflecting the grief in Michael’s father’s eyes,I met him at the AMC movie theatre with my granddaughter,I remembered the same look in my grandmother’s eyes when she talked about my father’s brother Robert Conlon Army Inf WWII killed in action on the island of Luzon. My heart felt sympathy to you and your family. TEC
