Folks: I'll keep them in my prayers. They deserve so much recognition, and they're doing such a good job. I read in today's paper that they have the upper hand over there, and are on a roll. Good work soldiers!!

No one in uniform ever gets the recognition they deserve for a hard job done in difficult circumstances at the risk of their lives.

ditto, Ole Cuss. We will remember him, his family, and friends in our prayers. Our most heartfelt condolences goes out to his survivors.

One of the earliest casualties was a Green Beret from Mardella Springs, Maryland which is over in the eastern part of the state. Right away I recognized the town by name in news reports because I had gone tractor pulling there only 4 or 5 years ago; the pull was held at the volunteer fire dept. and this young man had been a long-time volunteer there. I have since wondered whether I ran into him that day without knowing it.
