Some words from the warriors he served with:
“The first time I met Jared, our was a humid night on camp Pendleton. We were going into the field and I saw him eating something. When I asked Curry what he was doing, he said he was eating the heads off of matches and when I asked why, he said, “They have a small amount of sulfur. Mosquitoes hate sulfur.”
“So the first time I met doc was going on a field op. It was me Corbett and doc in my 7 ton. He was nervous because it was his first time working with us. Me and Corbett just got back from Iraq and thought we were super salty. The first night out there we had to help him set his gear up. It crazy to think that was the last time doc would be silent. From that day on he had a story and stupid fact about everything.”
“On one specific instance I think Santillan‘s vehicle hit an IED and doc came over to the vehicle and somehow or another I came to the vehicle as well and I remember doc administering the mace test and Santillan got one of the answers wrong and doc laughed in his face, and I just remember that being hysterical.”
“So to each their own, till we go home to other realms our souls must roam to and through the myth we call space and time.”
“A true empathic being with a fierce warrior soul powered a beautiful mind that could truly be understood by few but loved by many. I will carry the hopes that I see you again and we will pick up right where we left off with some Townes Van Zant in the background. “
Fair winds and following seas Doc Curry. You’ll never be forgotten, and your larger than life impact on everyone around you is a testament to your character.
For those who feel lost, or are struggling, please reach out to your brothers (or sisters), or us. You are all loved. #22untilnone”
