Another Gone

I hate days like this.

Rest easy buddy. The LT Mafia misses you already. Iraq ain’t over and it doesn’t change how the coin flipped, at least we got the dick. You did what was right and died in the act of helping the Iraqi people. There is honor in that act, if nothing else. But honor won’t bring you back. We salute you and drive on.

IAW Army Policy, we were on blackout untill the Soldier’s family was informed. Posts will resume tommorrow.

    It sounds like that was a friend. I’m sorry for your loss, and sorry, too, that you both had to be there.

    My condolences to this Soldier’s family, and to you and your unit. It is always hard losing a comrade – you all have my deepest sympathies.

    Another one lost.

    I know I can’t help much except to try to vote out the idiots.

    My condolences to your fellow soldier, and his family.

    And, my condolences to you who lost a friend.

    Take care, and be safe.
