I met SGM Strickland while I was in the Army! Oh, how my heart aches today and every time I think of him. All of this stinks and I wish I could just go back in time for a moment....

Larry and I went to Edmonds High School together and I will always remember what a friendly and warm person he was. He would have been retired almost 10 years...all 9/11 losses were a tragedy and his especially so. We will never forget.

I personally did not know Larry, but I know how much of an influence he was to my brother, Dan Vancil. He and his wife Debbie mean the world to my brother. Dan considered him a very good friend.... Larry, you will never be forgotten. I wish I could have met the man who inspired my brother in his military career.

I was in the Edmonds High School band with Larry. I played clarinet. We had so much fun on band trips. You were a wonderful person and one I will always miss at our class reunions.

I went to Edmonds High School with Larry Strickland.... We graduated 40 years ago. We were drummers in the school band. He was first chair, and I was always trying to catch up to him. My favorite memory was when we went on a band trip around the state, and we were roomates together. He was a mentor to me and I always looked up to him.

I met Sgt mjr Strickland's son, Matt. Long after his passing. What an incredible legacy this man has left for his children, and hopefully one day, grandchildren. You are your father's son Matt, find his strength within you to pass on his legacy.

You are not forgotten.

I knew Larry in college.  He was great guy and a great friend.  He always had a smile on his face, and was always the first one there to help a friend.  I hadn't seen him in years, but the world's a sadder place without him.

I met Sgt maj Strickland in Washington D.C. just briefly did I shake his hand, I doubt he remebered me, I was there in 1999 for the Army 10 miler, a female soldier from FT. Sill, OK.  He had a firm handshake and I remember meeting him amongst many other officers and higher ranking officials that day. For some reason he stuck out in my mind the most, maybe it was his name, his handshake, his professionalism, i don't know.. but I always thought in my mind of him as the ideal Army Sgt Major since meeting him.  I was saddened to hear of the loss of such an asset to the military and the lives of all he touched.

Sometimes there will be that one  person who would help anyone, or anything, Larry was one of those very few type of people. Although he is gone and has been gone for a very long two years, i know that his memory will always live on forever... rest in peace...

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. 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!

9-11Heroes.us is a personal effort, not a business, nor is the site dedicated to any specific person or persons. We will not post negative comments. Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
