    Blessings to you Chocolate Chick.
    Our small town lost a young man last year to the war. Something like that brings far off turmoil so close to home. Too close in fact. A bittersweet reminder of our loved one’s sacrifices for our freedom.
    Thank you for the tribute. And the reminder NOT to take where we live for granted!

    A very patriotic pick.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. It’s so difficult to think of any of our boys dying over there. I know its even harder when its someone you know.
    I feel fortunate that my son has came home twice from Iraq with no major injuries or even death. I know hes lost some of his squadmates the second time around and it has affected him. His wife tells me he has nightmares still. I wish all of our boys were home safe and with their families.

    This is such an appropriate pick in tribute to one of our fallen heros. My heart goes out to your entire community, especially the family of that young man. We have experienced this several times in our area, and the son of a friend returned alive, but missing both legs. We must always remember “Freedom is not Free”. God bless.
