Inspirational Note about Corey Shea While reading a number of sites about his life and Army service, I came across this surreal, inspirational note about Corey - it reinforced Corey's mom's statement that, "he looked out for people." And, what a lasting impression he made on this family - still honoring him 6 years later. "I met an Iraqi Christian Refugee family in Jordan in October 2014 who had escaped from ISIS only a few weeks earlier. Adnan Mettee and his family, from Mosul, told me about an American friend named SPC Corey Shea. He said Corey was a great help to him and his family in Mosul. Adnan and his family had to leave Mosul very quickly and they were not able to take much with them. Adnan did have a small folder of important papers and in this folder was a bulletin from Corey’s Memorial Service that was held in Mosul on Nov 19th 2008. He had another bulletin for the Memorial of Sgt. Jose Regalado that was also held that day. He asked me to tell his family members that Corey was a very brave and helpful friend. Adnan also said that he prays for Corey’s family members back in the USA." -Ken Savoie on Forever Missed
