Yesterday, I got the news. A really good friend of mine was K.I.A. in Afghanistan on Sunday. He survived the blast of the I.E.D but lost the struggle to live on the EVAC. We attended military school together, remained in contact, and kept our brotherhood bond. He was 22, a Private Frist Class, in the 82ND Air Born. I guess it is true, only the good die young. He dreamed of fighting for this country and gave the ultimate sacrifice.
I ask for prayers for the family, friends, and the military school cadets and alumni, as this is a tragic loss of a real good man.
