    A good soldier (father and husband) was killed today. I wont post his name to protect his family but I can tell you about him. He was a fine NCO and member of the rough riders conducting convoy security. He had 2 months left to go here. The IED blew the Hummer from the road into a field 30 yards away. I worked with him on several occassions. He was excited to be here and did his job like a soldier should........a great man.

    Please pray for his family and children, his family will have a very long healing period to go through.

    3 other soldiers will have amputated limbs.

    This is not to lessen the other mishaps here but this is the first soldier whom I have worked with who has been killed. There is a void in my heart.....

    Very sorry to hear that a brother has falling. I will pray for his family. I will also thank God for a man like him and the other 3 as it takes a very special person to wear a uniform in todays world. I will also pray for the speedy recovery of the other 3.

    To fallen soldiers let us sing
    Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
    Our broken brothers let us bring
    To the Mansions of the Lord
    No more bleeding, no more fight
    No prayers pleading through the night
    Just divine embrace, eternal light
    In the Mansions of the Lord
    Where no mothers cry and no children weep
    We will stand and guard though the angels sleep
    Through the ages safely keep
    The Mansions of the Lord

    It's very hard to hear about a good man being hurt or killed over there. Know that each and everyone of y'all are in my prayers. For the ones who have amputations, God Bless. Al (lawnman61) is a amputee full right leg and I know how hard it is for him. So lots of and prayers coming y'all's way.

    God bless.
