Wall of Warriors

To honor those who have battled internal wars – may they always be remembered.

SPC Garrett Briggs

7/31/1989 – 1/31/2018
Garrett was a warm and huge (6’7″) goofball with the biggest heart. He struggled significantly with post traumatic stress and a substance abuse disorder after serving in combat with the 1/75th Ranger Regiment, in 2013. I miss Garrett’s warm and engulfing hugs the most.

SPC Jonathan Bogert

5/28/1968 – 7/1/2013
Jon was a great friend who loved to laugh and joke. He adored his girls and enjoyed playing the guitar. Regardless of what was going on Jon was sure to be there to make you smile. Until next time my friend.

Carla Roselyn Briggs

1/19/1953 – 11/30/2010
Carla was a hard working single mother who loved her only son, Garrett, tremendously. She is loved and remembered today for her strength during her own internal war. Always loved, never forgotten, Carla.

SGT Sean P. Kelly

8/8/1987 – 11/7/2019
Your friend, Austin, misses you dearly and wishes you were not a part of the 22-a-day epidemic. Sean was the best friend the Army ever gave Austin. He remembers them always playing Pokémon go and talking crap to each other and playing magic the gathering. Hanging out with him when they both got out of the Army. He was a down to earth guy who was a big goofball and just the most amazing person Austin has probably ever known in his life.

SPC Nickolas J. Maner

5/5/1991 – 10/30/2017
Nickolas was the youngest of 3 boys. He loved his family and we loved him. I miss his calls and our chats. His oldest nephew remembers his Uncle Nick and likes items with the American Flag (he likes to honor his Uncle). We miss you Nickolas.

Garnett Morrison

3/23/1993 – 6/25/2017
Garnett enlisted in the United States Army on August 14, 2012 where he served for 5 years in active duty as a combat medic. Staff Sergeant Garnett S. Morrison was suddenly and tragically snatched from our lives and replaced with memories and tears. He was a great soldier and will be missed by so many. It was an honor to have known who he was.

Brad C Knoll

4/10/1991 – 3/17/2012
Bradley was a very special person that I considered my little brother! He had a great smile and always cracks jokes. His laugh was truly infectious. Growing up I can remember all the random stuff we shared laughs about. He also had a special bond with his dog and truly had many friends and family that can share stories on stories of adventure.

Rich Berryhill

8/8/1982 – 4/30/2018
Rich was super smart and was really good at his job. He was so good that his workmates would come to him for troubleshooting assistance. It was taking a lot of his work time so he wrote a 300 page help manual for them to reference.
His brain would not shut off so he was constantly thinking how to solve problems and we were told he was a great problem solver.
He had to rat terrier dogs that were his babies—AMA & Little Big Guy.
Richard loved to cook and have his friends over for game night and his smile and laugh would melt your heart. His depression and anxiety was too great for him to endure. We miss him greatly and pray that others in similar shoes can seek the help they need.

Paul had a heart of gold and he can make anyone laugh and smile. Paul passed away on April 15, 2019 at Carolina Beach. He always felt peaceful on the beach. Paul was an avid marksman, a survivalist, a devoted husband, a dedicated bonus dad, a loving son, a caring brother, a steadfast friend to many, a selfless man and man of honor.
