Iraqi Violence Hits Close to Home
I’m kind of in shock. A former high school classmate of mine was one of the two soldiers killed during an attack on a base near Balad yesterday. A third soldier died later of wounds caused by the attack. As if that weren’t bad enough, my classmate was on his way back home in time for Father’s Day.
My sincerest thoughts and prayers for his wife, two children, and the rest of his family.
Later story that names my former classmate, Stacey.
