  1. How awful for his widow, who must figure out how to go on. My heart breaks.

  2. A total contrast to a story I posted a few days back, where the 'parents' stood around outside wailing, while a passer-by rescued a child trapped in the building...

  3. The DoD announced today they will be honoring CW2 Cantrell with a military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery.

    RIP Warrior..... your journey continues in a much more calm and peaceful world.
