Brian Cody Prosser
December 5, 2001, the world learned that 3 American
Special Forces members, were killed
by friendly fire, while protecting America in Afghanistan.
days later, Monsters of the Webway were shocked and
saddened to learn, that one of the 3 killed was the
Brother of 2-year-member to our club, Jarudd Prosser.
The following was the post that we received on December
this (post) is not bears related. My name is Jarudd
Prosser, I have
been a member of the monster group family for about
2 years. I'm 22 years
old and live in a small town in Southern CA. called
Frazier Park, Which
until Wednesday not many people had heard of Frazier
Park. I wanted to share my experience with everyone
in this group.
Wednesday my father called crying me at 11:00A.M. to
tell me that my older brother Cody (as we call him)
had been killed in action in Afghanistan. I can't even
begin to explain the gutwrenching feelings I was feeling.
I had just lost my big brother and (second to my father)
my biggest role model in my life.
brother Cody was 28 years old, he joined the Army when
he was 18. I was able to talk to Cody about three months
ago before he was deployed. I looked at that conversation
as if it could possibly be our last. My last words that
I ever said to my brother were, "I love you brother
and I will
talk to you when you get back." Unfortunately Cody
didn't make it back.
day that passes my feelings turn from sadness to having
a tremendous sense of pride for my big brother. I'm
very lucky to have grown up with this man and very honored
to share the same last name as Cody. I can't even begin
to express my gratitude to the many Americans that have
looked me up and called me just to tell me that Cody
is a hero in their house as well.
is being awarded the Bronze star and was accepted to
be buried in Arlington National Commentary. Frazier
Park put on a parade today in memorial of Cody. There
was a huge turnout in our small community. Governor
Thomas Presented a flag, that was flown over the capital
on the day of Cody's death, to my father. I truly believe
that America is coming alive with a tremendous sense
of pride and I love it.
last thing I want to say is, make sure that you express
how much you care about people that are close to you.
You have to tell them, don't just assume that they know.
When an event like this happens it really puts things
into perspective. The material things don't really mean
IS WHERE IT IS AT.

I love you brother and I'll see you down the road.
