    A childhood friend of mine in Afghanistan

    Please take a moment to read the following article and to include my friend in your prayers so that he may come home safely to his wife and children.

    Major Mark Lear was my best friend growing up in a small town in Illinois. We were Eagle Scouts together in the same Scout Troop and were as near to being brothers as two people can be.

    Thanks,

    Ron

    Having spent a good deal of time in A-stan myself, I certainly will keep MAJ Lear in my thoughts. Do you know what region he is serving in? I may still have some contacts there...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    OPFOR,

    Lear is in the 205th Regional Corps Assistance Command in Kandahar.

    Know anyone there?

    I'm over here Kandahar Air Field (USAF Security Forces) but I am not sure I have run into a Major Lear. I think I know where you are talking about if I am right he is near by.

    MPA249,

    I realize that the chances of you running into him are pretty slim but if you do tell him that his childhood friend Ron says hello and stay safe. :)
