Last Colorado Air Guard MIA Laid to Rest in Arlington Cemetery

http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m108/BarbOOOO2/photos%202/lrs_080404-F-5495S-023a.jpg

ARLINGTON, Va., April 4, 2008 – The remains of Colorado Air National Guard Maj. Perry H. Jefferson, who vanished during an observation flight 39 years ago over the jungles of South Vietnam, were at last laid to rest yesterday at Arlington National Cemetery.

Three days of events here were a high-profile attempt to put closure to a missing-in-action mystery, but what exactly happened to the intelligence officer and his Army Reserve pilot, then-1st Lt. Arthur Ecklund, during their fateful observation flight may never be known.

A closed-casket viewing was held at a funeral home here April 1. Families, fellow servicemembers, veterans and friends to both men attended full-honors funerals April 2 and 3, which started at the Old Post Chapel on Fort Myer, Va., followed by platoon, band and caisson escorts to their gravesites on the nation's most sacred property.

Ecklund was interred at Arlington on April 2; he was previously interred in Knoxville, Ill., by his family in 2004. The Reservist attended Arizona State University and was drafted in 1966. He attended helicopter and fixed-wing aircraft training prior to his combat deployment.

More than 150 people attended Jefferson's services here, including nearly 100 from Colorado who watched the state's reported last Guard Vietnam MIA put to rest.

Slain medic honored in Germany

By Mark St.Clair (stclairm@estripes.osd.mil), Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Saturday, July 5, 2008


BAMBERG, Germany — For the second time in about two weeks, the military community here came together to mourn the loss of one of its own.

Just weeks before he was to fly home to his wife and baby girl, Sgt. Ryan James Connolly’s vehicle was hit by a suspected land mine in Khogyani, Afghanistan.

Though mortally wounded, Connolly — a combat medic — told those with him how to treat him and another injured paratroop while being evacuated for medical attention.

Connolly died June 24.

Connolly, 24, was about to celebrate his second anniversary with his wife, Stefanie, and see his daughter, Kayla, reach her first birthday.

He had volunteered to join the ranks of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team in late 2006. Coming from Baumholder, Germany, Connolly knew he would be deploying. Before he left, he earned his Expert Field Medical Badge.

While he was deployed, he was promoted to sergeant.

One of the soldiers who helped get Connolly ready for promotion was his platoon sergeant, Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Bradford, who rode on more than 80 combat patrols with Connolly over the last year. Speaking at Wednesday’s service, Bradford said, "He was not a subordinate, a soldier working for me, but a brother whose camaraderie was second to none, and whose advice could be counted on."

Bradford recounted example after example of Connolly’s dedication to his fellow soldiers as their medic, as well as to the Afghan people he served near.

"War is not just a reflection of us fighting — the usual stuff you see on TV. It’s a reflection on a couple common interests between individuals and incorporating close ties and memories that will last a lifetime," Bradford said of his friend.

Also speaking at the service was Capt. Wes Watson, who repeated remarks given previously by Connolly’s commander at a memorial in Khogyani on June 29.

"I was lucky enough to get to know Sgt. Connolly as well as any soldier in my company," Watson read, "and every time we talked, I was constantly impressed with Sgt. Connolly’s actions, demeanor and intelligence."

A native of Vacaville, Calif., Connolly had secured orders for a new assignment at the Presidio of Monterey health clinic, a job close to home that would allow him to raise Kayla in California.

In addition to his wife and daughter, Connolly is survived by his father, James; mother, Robin Nelson; and stepfather Bob Nelson.

A member of the 173rd’s Special Troops Battalion, Connolly is the 33rd "Sky Soldier" to have been killed in action during the present deployment.

The Bamberg community held a memorial service June 12 for Spc. James Matthew Finley and Pfc. Andrew Jon Shields who were killed May 31 by a roadside bomb in Jalalabad.

The more than 400 members of the battalion — as well as the troops in the brigade’s five other battalions and headquarters company — are due to rotate home to Bamberg and Schweinfurt, in Germany; and to Vicenza, Italy; over the next several weeks.

Afghanistan FOB named for soldier killed in ambush

Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Sunday, July 6, 2008

http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m108/BarbOOOO2/photos%202/photos%203/55996_75162810b.jpg


BAGRAM, Afghanistan — A forward operating base in Afghanistan has been renamed in honor of a soldier who was killed one year ago.

Forward Operating Base Naray, located in Kunar province, is now called FOB Bostick in honor of Maj. Thomas Bostick, the former commander of Bravo Troop, 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment (Airborne).

Bostick and Staff Sgt. William R. Fritsche were killed last July in Afghanistan when insurgents ambushed them after a meeting with local tribal leaders. At least 13 others soldiers were wounded in the firefight, officials said.

Last week, members of the unit and other military officials gathered to rededicate the base in Bostick’s honor.

"He died while saving the lives of his paratroopers against a numerically superior foe," Lt. Col. Christopher D. Kolenda, the 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment commander, said at the ceremony, according to a press release.

"We dedicate this forward operating base to his legacy and memory. Let all who enter this base, and all who write or speak the name of it, be reminded that freedom is not free."

According to Kolenda, it was shortly after the ambush that village elders became tired of the fighting in the area, and pledged their support. A 100-man shura, or council, met and agreed to try to improve security.

"The price paid in blood that day has led to greater stability in one of the most violent districts in the country," Kolenda said. "[It has] set the conditions for the emergence of the 100-man shura, and has increased the safety and security of civilian and soldier alike in that region."

Two F-15 jets performed a flyover. A plaque dedicating the base to Bostick was unveiled near the base helipad.

Staff Sgt. Jeremy D. Vrooman, a member of Troop P, 4th Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment.


2nd SCR soldier was striving to make a difference in Iraq

By Matt Millham (millhamm@estripes.osd.mil), Stars and Stripes
Mideast edition, Sunday, July 20, 2008


After nearly a year of serving in the 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment’s rear detachment, Staff Sgt. Jeremy D. Vrooman was raring to get back to Iraq.

"Like all of my leaders serving back here, Staff Sgt. Vrooman desperately wanted to deploy and lead troops in combat," Lt. Col. Tom Rickard, the unit’s rear detachment commander in Vilseck, Germany, said Friday.

Vrooman didn’t have any illusions about what he’d face in Iraq; he’d already served one full tour in the country.

So before leaving for Iraq June 12, he made a point of telling his peers that if anything happened to him, he wanted to be remembered in true cavalry tradition — that meant displaying his Stetson instead of a Kevlar helmet at his memorial ceremony.

On Tuesday, just about a month after hitting the ground, the 28-year-old soldier from Sioux Falls, S.D., led a team "at the dawn of another intensely hot, dusty day, doing what he loved to do," Rickard said Friday in Vilseck during a memorial ceremony for the soldier. Vrooman’s empty Stetson was there, as he’d asked for.

A nine-year Army veteran, Vrooman was the first man through the door as his team of soldiers from Troop P, 4th Squadron, moved to clear a building in the town of Kn’an. The building was booby-trapped, and Vrooman took the brunt of the explosion from a makeshift bomb.

"His brothers treated him quickly and expertly, but the damage was too great," Rickard said. Two other soldiers were injured in the blast. Vrooman died in a Baghdad hospital that day.

"The fateful day Staff Sgt. Vrooman led his section to clear that house coincided with the beginning of the voter registration period [for] the first democratic provincial elections in Iraq’s history," said Rickard.

Quoting Vrooman’s father, Bruce, Rickard said the soldier loved knowing that he was making a difference. "He loved his country and wanted to serve his country. He was what every man should aspire to be, what every husband should aspire to be and what every father should hope to be," the elder Vrooman had said.

Vrooman is survived by his wife, Latrecia; his 5-year-old son, Xavier; and 1-year-old daughter, Jade.

"He was so proud of Xavier and loved to bring him to the squadron headquarters and show him to everyone," Rickard said.

"There is no greater pain for his wife, family and friends than his sudden loss, and yet for those of us who serve, there is no more honorable way to leave the world."

CORONADO, Calif. - Two U.S. Navy SEALs died in Afghanistan Thursday night from injuries they suffered on September 11 during combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Senior Chief Special Warfare Operator John Wayne Marcum, 34, and Chief (select) Special Warfare Operator Jason Richard Freiwald, 30, both distinguished and highly decorated combat veterans, were fatally shot in Afghanistan during a battle with heavily armed militants.

Marcum and Freiwald were forward deployed to Afghanistan from the Naval Special Warfare Development Group at Dam Neck in Virginia Beach.

"The deaths of SOCS Marcum and SOC Freiwald are tremendous losses for Naval Special Warfare and the United States, " said Capt. Scott Moore, Commanding Officer of NSWDG. "These men were true warriors, dedicated to their country, their fellow SEALs, and the cause for which they were fighting. They died while taking the fight to the enemy, going in harm's way with the selflessness that resonated in their character and made them giants among men.

This may not be appropriate here but a want to remember my mother and father. My father, Jessie, was a life-long, die-hard Democrat, and a veteran who fought in WW2. He always taught me that service for your country comes first. For the first time in his life, I know he would of voted Republican this time.

And my mother, Margaret, who's been gone only a short time. She voted for Reagan against my father's wishes, always defended Bush, and taught me that abortion should have no place in a Christian's heart. She would of loved to be here to vote for a woman VP. I miss them both.

God bless all our fallen soldiers, Marines, airmen, and sailors. And may God extend his peace to their families.

A New York City police officer was killed in action while serving with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, the NYPD said Thursday.

Deon L. Taylor, who was assigned to Narcotics Borough Brooklyn North, died Wednesday, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said in a statement. Kelly expressed his "deepest condolences to the family and friends" of the officer.

"Like so many of his fellow officers, Deon Taylor courageously served his city at home and his nation abroad," Kelly said.

Details of Taylor's death were not immediately available. The U.S military reported Thursday that a roadside bomb in western Afghanistan killed three U.S. coalition troops on Wednesday

In a statement, the military said the bomb, which struck the U.S. coalition vehicle, also wounded another coalition member. It did not provide the exact location of the attack.

Taylor was among the 258 members of the NYPD currently on military leave, many of them serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, Kelly said.

Cpl. Jason Karella was born in Fairbanks and graduated high school in Anchorage Alaska. Shortly after that he joined the Marines. He died in mid-October in Afghanistan in a vehicle accident.

Upon hearing the news, I just felt compelled to do a digital painting of him and post it on my blog (http://trendnemesis.blogspot.com/2008/10/star-spangled-banner-fourth-verse.html). About a week later his aunt had contacted me and gave me better reference picture, by Veterans Day I had a better picture to present to his father Kevin Karella here in Fairbanks on Veterans Day. It was an honor to meet the Karella family!

So here is my tribute to Cpl. Karella and my gift to his family to honor his memory.

"O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their lov'd home, and the war's desolation,
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n rescued land,
Praise the Power that hath made and perserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause is just,
And this be our motto- "In God is our Trust;"
And the star spangled Banner in triumph shall wave,
O'er Land of the Free, and Home of the Brave"

Francis Scott Key, fourth verse of the Star Spangled Banner

My grandfather passed away in 2007. He was buried in Arlington and the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation helped my family.

As a teenager I do not see these acts of kindness often. It took my brothers and I back. We do not have a loud voice or the access to say thank you very effectively. But we found a way and raised several thousand dollars to give back to the foundation so they could continue sharing their support with others.

We are thankful to all those who have served and those who serve. Our dad is on his way in a few months to head overseas.

Please continue to be strong and I promise to do the very best for my country when I am old enough!

God Bless You Sean Hannity and all our military!

He stood so proudly in defense of this country. He felt honor bound to fight an entity that threatens our country like no other has. He died so others here in this country are free to live and speak freely. He died protecting us....even those among us who would have him stand down.

As a former US Marine who has served overseas during OEF, I have noticed that the majority of people in this country can't appreciate the severity of the awful things that happen to our Troops every single day. Although I was over there myself, I make it a point to thank every single Veteran that I come in contact with on a daily basis. We all suffer through very tough times in support of our country's people and the freedoms that they so often take for granted. If everyone reading this post thanks one Veteran for their service, I know for a fact that we, as Military, will feel less like outsiders in our own homeland, but rather more like the supporters of freedom that we are, were, and always will be.

This is almost a year old, but I searched before posting and didn't find any reference to him. So here goes:

Ed Freeman, died 20 August 2008. Medal of Honor recipient.

MAJ (r) Ed (Too Tall) Freeman was awarded the Medal of Honor by President George Bush for actions at a place called LZ Xray on 14 November 1965, where he was a huey pilot of A Company 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion in support of the 1st Cav Division who along with another pilot named Bruce Crandall (also Medal of Honor recipient) inserted LTC Hal Moore and his battalion of 7th Cav Troopers into the Ia Drang Valley. This was the first large action battle of the Viet Nam War and is captured in the film "We Were Soldiers". Too Tall is depicted in the film.

Freeman and Crandall flew numerious missions in and out of LZ Xray throughout the entirety of battle, when Medivac pilots/helicopters refused to fly, to resupply Hal Moore's troops with ammunition and water and take casualties out. Freeman and Crandall airlifted 70 Cav Troopers out of the Ia Drang and there's many a Trooper alive today because these two Real Americans put aside their own personal safety in order to save this unit. Too Tall was recommended for his award by his commanding officer, MAJ Bruce Crandall. MAJ Freeman is buried in Boise, ID.


May this gallant hero rest in peace with the assurance of resurrection and everlasting life in "The Mansions of the Lord".

Airman’s remains found in Vietnam



Stars and Stripes
Pacific edition, Sunday, April 5, 2009

The remains of a Phoenix airman were found in Vietnam and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors, the Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office said Thursday.

Lt. Col. Earl P. Hopper Jr. was flying in a four-ship combat patrol near Hanoi on Jan. 10, 1968, when his F-4D Phantom was hit by a surface-to-air missile. Hopper’s co-pilot, Capt. Keith Hall, said he told Hopper to eject, but Hopper’s ejection seat wouldn’t release.

Hall was captured and held until 1973, but Hopper was unable to escape the aircraft.

The Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command conducted three investigations and five excavations at the crash site, west of Hanoi, between 1993 and 1998. They interviewed four people who knew about the site, and recovered skeletal fragments and other flight equipment that were used to make a forensic identification.

Hopper was buried Friday at the National Memorial Cemetery of Arizona.

The remains of four U.S. soldiers missing in action from the Korean War have been identified and will be returned to their families for burial with full military honors, the Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office announced in a news release.

They are Cpl. Samuel C. Harris Jr., of Rogersville, Tenn.; Cpl. Lloyd D. Stidham, of Beattyville, Ky.; Cpl. Robert G. Schoening, of Blaine, Wash.; and one servicemember whose name is being withheld pending family notification.

On Nov. 25, 1950, the company came under attack while occupying a position near Hill 222 south of the Kuryong River and east of the "Camel’s Head" bend in North Korea, according to the release. The men were reported missing in action two days later.

You were only 20 years old, you never drank, and you never felt the warm touch of a woman. You were murdered by a fool and a coward who could've saved everyone a world of sorrow by shooting himself in the face, but instead he took yours and four more of our brothers lives.

No amount of training could have prepared us for when we carried your body onto that plane, and a part of us will never be the same without you.

This senselessness couldn't have happened to a more undeserving person than yourself, and I will never understand why you are no longer here. Surely you have already faced hell within these demonic actions, and may peace be with you for all eternity as the Lord welcomes you into Paradise.

Department of Defense Announces Death of Missouri Soldier in Iraq


05.13.2009 12:02


http://i102.photobucket.com/albums/m108/BarbOOOO2/photos%202/171538.jpg

BAGHDAD – The Department of Defense on May 13 announced the death of a Missouri Army Reserve Soldier serving in Iraq.
Pfc. Jacob David Barton, 20, a native of Rolla, Mo., died of injuries sustained from a shooting incident on May 11 at Camp Liberty, Iraq. The incident is under investigation.

Pfc. Barton was a member of 277th Engineer Company, 46th Engineer Combat Battalion (Heavy), 225th Engineer Brigade, Multi-National Division-Baghdad. The 277th Engineer Company, based in San Antonio, Texas, is conducting combat engineering missions in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Pfc. Barton was a construction equipment repairer and worked in the company's maintenance platoon. Shortly after graduating from Rolla High School in 2008, he enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves. He attended Army Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri with Alpha Company, 169th Engineer Battalion. He was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood with the 955th Engineer Company. He deployed to Baghdad, Iraq with the 277th Engineer Company.

In his spare time, Pfc. Barton enjoyed playing computer games and chatting online with his sister. He was always ready to help and willing to learn about the maintenance field, and was very humble and respectful of those around him.

"A man's character is defined by his actions, and Pfc. Jacob Barton, although a young man is a man we should look to as an example for ourselves and our children. He willingly chose to raise his right hand and serve his Country in a time of conflict. He died in the service of our Nation, as a brother-in-arms, and as a member of the Steel Spike team. We are shocked and saddened by his loss, and ask all of you to keep Jacob's grandmother and sister in your thoughts and prayers," said 46th Engineer Battalion Commander Lt. Col. Matthew Zajac.

"I want to offer my condolences to the family," said 46th Engineer Battalion Command Sgt. Major Frank Thibodeau. "Pfc. Barton joined the Army and volunteered for deployment during a time of war to support his nation. He did anything his unit ever asked him to do."

"Pfc. Barton was never disrespectful. He totally matured during the time he was with us," said Sgt. Piotr Szczepaniak, Barton's team leader. "You could never get angry with this guy. He was just a real good guy. I hope he's in a better place."

"Pfc. Barton was very generous and never thought of the cost to himself," said Spc. Daniel Castillo, Barton's roommate. "He was just a really simply guy. He never complained, he always just tried his best."

Barton's awards include the National Defense Service Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, the Armed Forces Reserve Medal with Mobilization Device, the Army Service Ribbon, and the Army Overseas Service Ribbon.

PFC Jessy S Rogers was KIA 07/23/07. Army 1st. battalion 503rd infantry regiment 173rd Airborne. 30 days after arriving in afghanistan my son was killed along with 4 other soldiers by an IED. It gets easier to deal with over time. It was hard to hear of the soldiers killed by one of our own. In every war their is this kind of tragedy. I know our military doesn't like it anymore then the rest of us. We need to support our soldiers with encouragment and do all we can to keep their moral up while they are in harms way. Every wounded fallen soldier is the price America has to pay for the freedoms and liberties we hold so dear. PTSD is real. National security is priority 1 for any country that wants to survive. Please support the wars our brave men and women are fighting in. We have the high moral ground. God bless our troops George Bush, Dick Cheny, and the rest of you out their that are doing all you can to protect this great country.

I was there in the winter of '64
When we camped in the ice at Nashville's doors
Three hundred miles our trail had led
We barely had time to bury our dead
When the Yankees charged and the colors fell
Overton hill was a living hell
When we called retreat it was almost dark
I died with a grapeshot in my heart

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set my spirit free
Let me lay down my gun
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
But I can't come home 'til the last shot's fired

In June of 1944
I waited in the blood of Omaha's shores
Twenty-one and scared to death
My heart poundin' in my chest
I almost made the first seawall
When my friends turned and saw me fall
I still smell the smoke, I can taste the mud
As I lay there dying from a loss of blood

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set my spirit free
Let me lay down my gun
Sweet mother Mary I'm so tired
But I can't come home 'til the last shot's fired

I'm in the fields of Vietnam,
The mountains of Afghanistan
And I'm still hopin', waitin' prayin'
I did not die in vain

Say a prayer for peace
For every fallen son
Set our spirits free
Let us lay down our guns
Sweet mother Mary we're so tired
But we can't come home 'til the last shot's fired
'Til the last shot's fired

Staff Sergeant Ryan L Zorn, from my Home town, we buried him on the 24th of November at the National Cemetary in Sturgis SD.

Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Zorn, who died in a vehicle accident in Iraq, knew early in life that he wanted to join the military, and he planned to spend his career in the service, his mother said.
Zorn, who grew up in Upton, Wyo., died Nov. 16 in Tal Afar, Iraq, from injuries suffered in the roll-over crash, the Defense Department said. He was 35.
JoAnn Zorn, of Wright, Wyo., said her son was on his third tour in Iraq when he was killed. During a 15-year military career, he had been stationed across the United States and in Germany, Saudi Arabia and Korea, his mother said.
“He had always wanted to go into the service, as much as we tried to talk him out of it,” JoAnn Zorn said. “At high school, when they would have career day or anything like that, he said, ‘No I want to go into service,’ and that’s what he did.”
Zorn was assigned to the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kansas. He trained there to be part of a military transition team — a small group of soldiers that advises and teaches Iraqi soldiers — and deployed in March for a yearlong tour.
The military said it’s investigating the roll-over crash that killed Zorn. JoAnn Zorn said the family has not yet heard any details about the crash except that her son suffered traumatic head injuries.

Salute.

Pam Murphy, widow of actor Audie Murphy, was veterans’ friend and advocate

April 16, 2010 posted by Robert Rosebrock

Pam Murphy, the widow of Audie Murphy, was involved in the Sepulveda VA hospital and care center over the course of 35 years, treating every veteran who visited the facility as if they were a VIP. Pam Murphy died last week at the age of 90

After Audie died, they all became her boys. Every last one of them.

Any soldier or Marine who walked into the Sepulveda VA hospital and care center in the last 35 years got the VIP treatment from Pam Murphy.

The widow of Audie Murphy – the most decorated soldier in World War II – would walk the hallways with her clipboard in hand making sure her boys got to see a specialist or doctor — STAT. If they didn’t, watch out.

Her boys weren’t Medal of Honor recipients or movie stars like Audie, but that didn’t matter to Pam. They had served their country. That was good enough for her.

She never called a veteran by his first name. It was always “Mister.” Respect came with the job.

“Nobody could cut through VA red tape faster than Mrs. Murphy,” said veteran Stephen Sherman, speaking for thousands of veterans she befriended over the years.

“Many times I watched her march a veteran who had been waiting more than an hour right into the doctor’s office. She was even reprimanded a few times, but it didn’t matter to Mrs. Murphy.

“Only her boys mattered. She was our angel.”

Last week, Sepulveda VA’s angel for the last 35 years died peacefully in her sleep at age 90.

"When Jonathan Porto proposed to his wife, he didn’t have a ring to give her. So he improvised.

The Marine took the small chain from his dog tag and wrapped it around Rachel’s finger.

“I showed it off like it was a freaking 2-carat diamond platinum piece of work,” she said. Rachel Porto eventually got a real ring a few weeks later, when Porto surprised her at her family’s cabin at Walt Disney World."

Major Paul D. Carron. Though I am not his biggest fan I must acknowledge that he was a good company commander. He served with more dedication than most I have seen. He died in late September 2010. I remember him for the following:

In a letter to the editor, which was published in the Washington Times, the then Captain Paul Carron, stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington, wrote:

When I was younger, my father made me read a book by James Michener, "The Bridges at Toko-Ri." When I finished, I told him the book was about naval aviators during the Korean War. He looked at me a little disappointed and told me I had missed the point. The book to him was not about pilots or the Korean War — it was about the bravery of men. At the end of the book, the captain of an aircraft carrier is watching his men suit up for yet another mission when he asks himself out loud, "Where do we get such men?

...They [the pundits] should see a 22-year-old spend two hours sitting on a hard concrete floor negotiating an electricity contract or generator plan only to hit an improvised explosive device emplaced by the very people he seeks to help; a 19-year-old female medic advise a 19-year-old Iraqi mother on how to treat her child's ear infection; or men still dazed from a bomb blast that killed a friend and wounded seven others return from a mission and roll up their sleeves to give blood for the wounded, then clean the blood out of their vehicle to do a night patrol.

They do it without ceremony or formality; they do it because it is their job and they are driven by sense of purpose few in other professions can understand.

"Where do we get such men?" From all over — not just America, but from many other countries, but I know for sure the dedication required to do what they do every day is equal to the demands of any "real job."

He served with the beginning of the A-Stan invasion, jumps into Iraq, leading an Infantry Company in Iraq later (my company in 2005) and Afghanistan again in the past year - which is where he died. He was always near the front and never cowered.

I was thinking about my Grandpa again today. I miss him.. wish I could've talked about war with him over a cup of coffee..

http://obitsforlife.com/obituary/137785/Johnson-Kenneth-Lloyd.php

Kenneth Lloyd Johnson, son of James Lewis Johnson and Ana Theresa (Dryer) Johnson was born July 6, 1923 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Kenneth served in the United States Army during World War II. He became the first Caucasian to join a black Army unit. During his service years, he island hopped setting up radio communication equipment. Kenneth was always an adventurer; an example of his courage was when he volunteered to try an experimental drug-Penicillin (Penicillin saved his leg from amputation due to Jungle Rot).

In February of 1951, in the town of Racine, Wisconsin, Kenneth was united in marriage to Carrie Lunsmann. To this union two daughters, Sandy and Patty were born.

Kenneth continued his love for electronics and communications by making it his life long career. He was very proud of the fact that he was a HAM radio operator over 65 years.

First and foremost, God bless SPC Jacob D. Barton, my friend who was murdered in Iraq by a fellow Soldier.

God bless SGT Anson Curry who was with me when we got hit by that grenade in the Charkh bazaar. You took shrapnel to both lobes of your brain, and you will have permanent braing damage. You're still in a wheel chair and can barely speak. God is with you, your wife and children are with you. Our prayer are forever with you. Get well soon, Caveman!

God bless SGT Chris Garrett, who was shot in the gut while patrolling Zargan Shah, tearing his femoral vein and shattering his upper femur bone and hip. You still have a long road of recovery man. We pray for only the best for you and your family.

God bless SPC Tommy Counihan who lost his leg from an IED at the Kherwar mountain pass. You're back in California on your surf board, just like you always loved. We pray that you continue living out your passion for the water.

God bless SPC Christian Martinez, who was struck by an IED, fracturing his spine in 3 places in Baraki Barak. You're so lucky to be back on your feet, and we pray that your new life in the civilian world will bear fruit for you and your family.

God bless PV2 Derek Poore who was hit with an IED containing Willey Pete in SheshKhala. Your lungs are destroyed and the disability awarded to you does no justice. We pray that you are afforded everything you could ever possibly need in life to live long and happy.

All the crap we've been through and I'm that lucky bastard who got through it with a mere hole in my knee. Its not fair that I can still push through the day when you all struggle. If I could trade my health for yours I would! I miss you guys, and will always pray for the best for you! CHEERS!!!!!!!!

RIP to all the great soldiers who have died abroad and at home. My close friend took his own life on 28 Jan 2013 as a result of PTSD related depression. No one can pay back the sacrifices our troops have made for this country but we should continue to strive to ensure we are there to help our fellow Americans in their times of need.
