Local Man Killed in Action

This story has so many similarities to our American Hero’s story it’s creepy.

This American Hero was a Sargent too.

This American Hero made two tours in Afghanistan too.

This American Hero came home for two weeks leave for the birth of their baby.

This American Hero was killed in action three months after coming home for the birth of their baby too.

This American Hero played percussion in his local high school band… just as Alexis did.

This American Hero’s father-in-law was there at the front door when the two green uniforms showed up too.

This American Hero’s father-in-law also says that you couldn’t ask for a better son-in-law.

This American Hero’s widow moved in with her family when her husband deployed.

This American Hero was also stationed out of state.

This American Hero was also 25 years old when he too was killed in action.

This American Hero’s four year old son goes to the same school as my four year old son!

Please remember this family and all the family members of those killed in action as well as those who are struggling with injuries sustained while serving our country.

God bless each and every one.

    I agree with Hayden, I have no words. This is so thought provoking.

  3. Thoughts are with them and you. Prayers going up.

    My daughter said she wants to reach out to this other widow.

    They also each graduated the same year. Way to many freekn similarities.

    After calling and speaking with the in-laws I went over to meet them. I dropped off a cooler of various drinks so they don’t have to worry about washing cups/glasses, etc.

    They told me his body just got in to Dover and the family will start coming in tomorrow.

    I saw the two and four year olds. They each have white blond hair and look so innocent.

    Sigh…

    I’m so happy your daughter wants to do that. It’s a nice thing to do. This is so incredibly sad.
