Cpl. Carlo Alfonso was the kind of guy who would show up unannounced, ready to lend a hand. When a family from his unit arrived in Baumholder, he was there to help unpack. Then he offered to cook dinner, one soldier recalled. Whether it was pitching in to do some heavy lifting or lightening the mood with a joke, fellow 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division soldiers said Alfonso was the kind of guy you always wanted around. "He was a great family man and a brother to us all," said Spc. Paul Kromshroeder, a fellow soldier with the 40th Engineer Battalion. 10/08/2013 Allen Ashbrook you and the family are always in my heart. we miss you brother. thank you for being you and doing what you do.we will be brothers for life and have been since basic training and AIT.I will NEVER forget you 24/06/2012 SGT.
