This past Tuesday early morning, one of our town
s finest young men was killed in Kabul, Afghanstein. He was a defense contractor with the A.F..
He was in his mid-forties. In the early 80's; he, DD2 and I worked together at the grocery. He left there and went to work at the factore, hubby worked at. Hubby was his boss. They also ran on the EMS squad together where he was a captain for hubby.
After that, he was dispatcher for the local police dept., later becoming a patrolman. Then, he went to the County Sheriff's Dept. as a dispatcher; later becoming a road deputy. Five years ago, he became a Defense Contractor. He loved his work training Afghan.s to become police officers. He was doing what he loved when he gave his life.
Being on our Church's Prayer Chain I got the call to pass on! I was writing all the info. down to pass on. When the Emmintis Pastors wife said the name as I was prepared to write it down; I felt a sinking sick feeling at the pit of my stomach! I heard the name, and, yet I didn't hear the name! I asked for the name again. When she repeated the name 'Kurt Muncy'; I replied 'Oh, no, Rose'. She asked if I knew him! Everyone in my family does! He felt like a son to me. He was home just two weeks ago, to help celebrate his parents 50th Wedding Anniversary! His body will arrive back in town between 8-9 p.m. tomorrow evening!
God Rest His Soul!
