Very moving story, and a good lesson for us all.

Army Cpl. Benjamin Kopp was wounded in battle in Afghanistan last month, and died eight days later. But now, his heart lives on in a woman from north suburban Winnetka.

Amazing !! I heard about this wonderful ending to the tragic loss of this Ranger...it's just a shame that we are too concerned covering the "snake oil salesman" who resides in the White House today than hearing about a hero like this. What a disgrace! Anyway............"ALL THE WAY RANGER...ALL THE WAY!!"

Reminds me of something I heard many years ago. "A hero will give his life when necessary so others may live." Cpl. Kopp is proof of this.

The story effects me on a personal level as I happen to be the recipient of a kidney transplant thanks to someone in Kentucky who chose to be an organ donor. The young Cpl in this story is indeed a hero.
