    He leaves behind a wife ,two sons and a daughter. he was only 30 . just a baby. Please keep his family in your prayers. when he was younger he was in the volunteer fire department with my husband and myself. He was a great guy.

    A grateful SALUTE and prayers go out to his family for his/their sacrifice for our freedom.

    Every generation since George Washington has had to shed copious amounts of blood to keep us free.

    Unfortunately, we are being torn asunder from within our government, both parties are to blame and they are shredding the God inspired constitution before our very eyes.

    If we are to stay free, more blood will be required.

    Chixie, My thoughts and prayers are with you and your town and his family for your lose.

    Goldstarmom, Thank you for the sacrifice of your family and son. You have every right to be very proud.

    I have stood at many funerals of lost soliders over the years, unfortunately. It does not get any easier. Each one has reminded me of how many precious people have sacrificed to allow me to live my life and I ask God to bless each one's families as they remember to celebrate that fallen solider's life and that they know that solider is a hero in my family's eyes and hearts always.
