A few thoughts

Michael was a fun loving kid who wanted to be a Soldier since any of us can remember.  He wanted GI Joe underwear, the camo clothes, and even had kind of a military bearing about him even as a child.  His Father served 6 years in the Air Force, and his Grandfather was a Silver Star Recipient in WWII.  Michael lived most of his adolescent life in Kingston, Oklahoma.  That’s right, Marshall County, and he was Dam proud of it.  Dam proud of being an Okie, and dam proud of his Irish heritage that gave him the middle name of "Eyre".(pronounced Ir)  He served his first year in Iraq out of Ft. Riley Kansas with the 2-70 Armor, and the 1-41 Infantry, deploying in Feb. 05.  He was in 3rd Plt. "AVALANCHE."  He served as a 240 gunner, and a dam good 240 gunner he was.  His actions led him to become a member of the sniper team, and they became "OUTLAW 7"   At first he was the heavy machinegun backup, but progressed to be a spotter/shooter and later still to being a Team Leader.
