    I wish you were here, but you're not here, you're there. And there doesn't know how lucky it is." Hero Stars Honors Our American Hero Army Spc. Geoffrey A. Whitsitt Hometown: Taylors, South Carolina Geoffrey Whitsitt was a country boy who loved running through the woods and fields near his rural South Carolina home as a child, dreaming of the day he’d finally be a soldier. “He was my fishing buddy and my friend,” said Whitsitt’s father, Steve. He and his wife, Debbie, said their son never wavered from his dream of becoming a Ranger. “He had a warrior spirit,” his mother said. Geoffrey was home-schooled until 10th grade, then attended Greenville Tech Charter High School. He graduated in 2007. The Whitsitts remembered their son as a young man who was living his dream, but also as a man of faith who was trying to live a life that was “pleasing to God,” Steven Whitsitt said. “He was rough, he was the little guy, and he was the little guy with a big attitude some of the time,” the soldier’s father said. “But he had a compassionate heart. Steven Whitsitt said his son will be missed by many — “but he will inspire a lot of people also.” Army Spc. Geoffrey A.
