Karen was a awesome role model. She was a great student, friend, athlete, soldier, and all-around person. The world will misses her greatly. Thank you, Karen!

I went to junior high and high school with Karen. Karen was a wonderful, genuine person, and everyone liked her. It's still heartbreaking that she is gone. I'm proud to have known her.

Apparently she was a good person to what I learned today because I currently attend Karen Wagner High School in San Antonio, Texas and it's a very nice school and I'm sorry about her death.

Psalm 23:6 NKJV "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life." Although your physical life is no more, you will never be forgotten. From one personnelist(70F) to another, you'll always be accounted for (smile).

I worked with CPT Wagner at Walter Reed AMC, and she always had a bubbly attitude and joked a lot. As a SPC, I admired her professionalism and accomplishments and hoped to be like her in most ways. After 9/11/01, a number of us that served with CPT Wagner at Walter Reed came together to have lunch. You could FEEL the sadness in the room without saying a word. We all miss you so much, Karen. I pray that you are at peace and resting in God's loving arms. Love you!

You are always in my thoughts! I truly miss your warm smile.... How you lighted up the room when you walked in! You didn't know a stranger because you always found a way to befriend someone. Then, how you were always a professional and excelled at WHATEVER you set your heart at! I will always love and adore my sister!

I go to WHS WAGNER HIGH. I am in JROTC and learn a lot about you, Karen, and you are a hero to me, and I am honored to go to a school named after you, ma'am.

The great people will always live in the world, in our thoughts.

As an African American military member, Karen served as an extraordinary role model to me. In 2002 our Master's team ran in her memory, wearing t-shirts with her image. Today, as I run in the Army Ten-Miler, I will again be wearing a tribute to her memory. She is missed by all who knew her.

What a funny lady! I see her now: dancing in front of my desk just full of personality at the Medcom in Ft Sam Houston -- it was 1997ish. I'm still shocked by the tragedy, but have such fond memories of then, Major Wagner.

As a student at LTC Karen J. Wagner High school, I am deeply honored to attend such as school named after such an amazing person who was taken from this earth too early. The 9/11 ceremony this year was wonderful. I wish everyone could have seen it. Thank you for everything.

*** Posted by Victoria Wixon, C-Co Commander 2008 on 2008-09-13 ***

I was stationed with the 85th Evacuation Hospital, Fort Lee, Va, when Lt. Wagner reported as our Hospital Adjutant. I believe she was a 2nd Lt (Butter Bar). She looked like a little kid, not much older that most of us soldiers. She radiated sunshine and treated everyone with kindness. She also motivated us to do more than was expected of us. Recently I found out that she was in the Pentagon, on 9/11. It felt as if it had happened all over again. I could see Karen's face, and it became personal. My heart was crushed that such a beautiful and lively person could have been taken from us, in the prime of her life. Being a fire fighter, my heart naturally went out to the 343 firefighters that fell that fateful day. I will never forget Karen as we shall always remember the victims of 9/11. Rest in Christ's Devine Light Karen.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.

Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!
