    Dear Mrs. Walker: I was stationed in Baghdad, when the call came to us via email to attend a Patriot Detail. I showed up on the flightline & within 30 minutes, a small pickup truck drove up with your husband's flagdraped coffin in the back. Six pallbearers were selected from a group of about 40 personnel; the rest of us marched out to the awaiting C-130 and saluted your husband as he was carried into the aircraft. The Chaplain said a prayer to God to accept your husband into Heaven. At the time, he mispronouced his name as "Worker", so I could not look him up in Military.com. It was only this week when I read a copy of People Magazine, and saw Timothy's name in print, did I realize, that is the fellow soldier I stood next to, my boot to his coffin. I can only say that my heart was breaking and my mind was filled with so many questions. I wish you and your children God's Blessings in life, even though Timothy is not with you here. I have thought of him often since. God Bless..TSGT Chick

    SSG Walker was one of a kind, a "true" Army medic who loved everything about the Army and serving his country. It was a honor to work with him at Ft Carson, I only knew him for a short time but he was a outstanding medic, great leader and a wonderful mentor to the new medics. My prayers are with you Mrs. Walker and your children, God Bless.

    SSG Walker was shift NCOIC in the ED when I was an Active Duty RN at EVANS. Tim had the best sense of humor and cared more about his soldiers than his own welfare. This news has upset me a great deal. He was/is the epitome of what an NCO is, and what being an NCO stands for. In addition to that he is one of the best medics I have ever served with. His goal was to be a field medic again and get out of the hospital setting. Knowing this was his wish, I know in my heart he died doing what he truly loved, and I have the deepest admiration for him. He loved the Army, his family, and his job. My condolences to his family and his troops, for they have suffered a great loss, and the Army has lost a stellar soldier!

    I worked with Tim, and knew him on a personal basis, he was a real tough guy but he cared about those around him and about his troops. He volunteered to go back over to the desert. He was my friend and I will miss him. He could always be a wise guy but he was good, the last thing I said to him was "See you when you get back Sarge, be safe brother." He was a good man. Dawn as Joe said if you ever need anything you know where to find us and we will always be there for you and yours.

    My deepest sympathy to the Walker family. The world has lost a dedicated family man and good person. My thoughts are with you at this time.

    I worked with Tim at the emergency room at EACH. An excellent provider, and damned good NCO. Upon first meeting him, you found out he was proud of the fact that he was from Tennessee, "The Volunteer State". Like other notable Tennesseeans before him(Andrew Jackson and Davy Crockett to mention a few), he did not hesitate to answer his nations call and volunteer for missions to Iraq. It is very unfortunate that he died while doing this. I knew him to be dedicated to family, friends,the Army, and medicine, and always striving for improvement. It was an honor to know and work with him, I miss him........ Dawn(Mrs. Walker)if there is anything that I and the folks at Evans ER can do to help, PLEASE do not hesitate to ask

    RIP SSG WALKER! I can't believe you are gone. I will never forget everything you taught me and all the good times we had in Iraq as a squad. I couldn't have asked for a better leader while being there. Thank you so much! .... God bless your family!!!!! Love, GOOBIE :)
