Good morning Ladies.
Something has happened that has really disturbed me. There was a 25 year old that was killed in Afganstran . He is from Columbia, South America. He can to this country 5 years ago. His mother is already here. He married a young local woman. They have two young children. He enter our Army to make his children proud of him. This was his first deployment.
It was on the local TV News when his body arrived back in the states. However, no mentioned when the body was to arrive here. They did have the fire truck [so I have been told], to form their arch with the ladders for the hourse to go under. However, who knew? Not many! His viewing is coming up, with the funeral for Sunday. I for one, am proud of him. From another country or not. In wanting to make his children proud, he is making me proud as well. He thought enough to also make his 'now' country proud as well! He will be buried locally.
Even though I can't say his name, THANK YOU!
