I was talking to someone and the topic of his Nephew came up and his 2 tours in Iraq as a dismount in a Bradley. I started sharing about a friend of mine that was lost in 2002 and it got me to thinking about him.
I know 2002 was a long time ago, but we sort of grew up together and had lost touch for a while. I was reconnected with him when I got a call one day at the office and was told that Brian had died in Afghanistan, I didn't even know he was over there (which is sad on my part).
SSG Brian T. Craig
This is a site his parent's put up for him. It was kinda cool last Christmas Eve when I went to see the troops off at DFW Airport I spotted an EOD patch and started talking to the Soldier and he knew my buddy. Small World, especially in EOD.
Anyway, I just thought I'd share the memory of a hero past; my friend SSG Brian Craig.
