    I would like to say that im very sorry for the loss of Mr. Smith. He was one of the most respectful people that i have ever met in my life. Although he was a shy person, he had a burning desire to put his best foot forward. Sometimes when he fell short of his goal, he would shake it off and used his determination to succeed. I can honestly say that he was one of my favorite trainees at Lackland Air Force Base. As his instructor, i saw how good of a person he was but yet how shy he was around a group of people that he didnt know. He may have thought that i was hard on him, but thats not the case. I saw his potential and i “pushed” (motivated) him to be that person that was hiding inside. I will never forget the 1st day that i saw him. He seemed very scared and timid. So i asked him his name and wherehe was from. He said that he was from Missouri. I then said that i was from Missouri. He took a big gulp and began to tremble. I told him then, “youre gonna be one of my best trainees here.” He gulped again and said, “yes sir.” He did not disappoint. By the time the 3rd week came around, he was one of the “silent leaders” that every grouo of people needs. He was tremendously respected amongst his peers because of it. It was a true blessing to have met Mr. Smith. Im extremely sorry to hear about your loss. The world really did lose a great person.
