From Esteban Martinez 06/19/06:

Sean G. Landrus was my squad leader. I was in his squad for about a year or more. We were deployed to Kuwait for four months together, and during that time I learned a lot from him. When we returned back to Fort Riley Kansas he kept the squad leader position until my contract in the Army was completed. I did not re-enlist so when I left Fort Riley and headed home, a few months later my unit B Company 1st Engineers Battalion was deployed to Iraq. During his position as a squad leader we were one of the top squads in the company to complete certain tasks. He was a good squad leader, and enjoyed to laugh. I remember him laughing at our jokes, and because of the diversity of the squad it made it a unique experience for me, and I know for him as well. I was the driver of the squad, and where ever he was, I was usually there. What my fate would have been if I would have re-enlisted and been deployed with Sgt. Landrus only God knows. Today is my 25th birthday, June 19, 2006. I want to send my deepest sympathies to his family he left behind. His wife, his little boy that I used to see walking around in the halls of the barracks holding his father's hand. And if I am not mistaken he left back another child that I don't believe he ever got to see, I want his family to know that he was a good man, responsible, and brave. He will be missed.
