Sad News...

Last night the inevitable happened. My unit sustained it's first casualty of the war. I know I am not a good writer and couldn't begin to write about what happened. So I'm not going to try.

If I see any articles in the news about it I will post the links here.

  • I read one of the articles and it came to me for it seems the millionth time that it seems it is the best that are lost. Those people that make everyone smile, everyone adores them, those who make the world a better place.

    I know words cannot express anything to make anyone feel better... I know first hand... but I do offer my sincere condolences.

  • What can I add that the others haven't said? I read the links you posted and was touched, once again, by a young man who was loved by many yet a complete stranger to me. He is an angel now and may God take good care of him.

    My deepest sympathy to you, the others in your unit and to the family and friends of this brave hero.

  • I'm so sorry that your unit suffered it's first loss. I'm supporting a squad of soldiers in Iraq, and I will pray for you and your men as I'm praying for my guys/girls, and everyone else who's risking their lives for ours. Thank you and Bless You!

  • I am so sorry to hear your friend was killed.
    I feel completely unworthy of the sacrifice being made for my freedom, but I am very thankful for it.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep you and your fellow soldiers in my prayers.
    I know that the Lord greeted your good Christain friend at the gates of heaven, saying, "Well done good and faithful servant. You have run the good race and fought the good fight, now recieve the royal crown of victory." May God Bless you,and all of our troops. May he keep you all safe...

  • Your loss is our loss as well. Your comrade was a brave and worthy soul no matter how he died. He was there, doing the job he was asked to do. Our prayers are with you, your unit and the family. We mourn with you and we move on with you. Stay the course.

  • I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Never easy, and there's not enough words.

    As a btw, if you happen to run across SSG Kave or SSG Joshua L (1st Platoon, C 2/123), please let both of them know there's soon to be more boxes on the way.

    Stay Safe!

  • i'm sorry to hear about your loss. I know how you feel, I lost my best friend over there in Nov 03. It is painful but remembering them and continuing the fight with them as your driving force is the best way to cope with the loss and move on with the mission. God bless you and your unit. I'll be seeing you soon enough---headed back sometime this year.

  • Do what you can... I'm indebted to you, soldier...

    ...We all know it's hard, but at the same time, we can't realistically 'feel' the sense of pain...

    Carry on, and thank you.

  • Some give the ultimate sacrifice. May they rest in peace and their families find comfort.

    There's a mixture of sadness and profound patriotism in the air.

    God bless you, soldier.

    Ever in our prayers,

  • I am so very sorry. I wish there was a way to thank each and every person serving now, just know that you and all our troops are appreciated with all our hearts. And you are all in our prayers everyday.
    Thank you for your service to our country and for my freedom and living in a safe USA. Thank you seems so little to say but it is with the fullest meaning there can be.
