These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

  1. Once again, my heart is broken. These men should have been back home long ago!! I just can not see the hold up; the Middle East doesn’t want us there!! Farewell, Sergeant Riewer, you won’t be forgotten.

    • I’ve considered not posting these because–personally–it’s depressing. But how could I do that? What small price to share their story.

      • They deserve it, our pain is a small price compared to theirs.
