SSG Bright/Squad Leader Ft. Bragg on Friday, January 10, 2014 3:32 PM
To the Knaack Family, I was deeply saddened to hear the news. Deepest sympathy goes out to all of you from me SSG Bright, the Bright family, and the Ft. Bragg Wounded Warrior Battalion family (WTB). I will remember his smile, his love for Gannon, and the long talks we had. He most surely will be missed. On Sunday night God put His arms around SPC Knaack and whispered "come with me." Although you loved him dearly, you could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating; a brilliant mind is now at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. May God bless and keep you, and just know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

It was a sad day for many and filled everyone close to him with grief, but he is not gone he lives in everyone of us and some how will let us know he's there to guard us as though he never left. We love you greatly and dearly go-go and we will meet again someday.
