MEMORIAL DAY 2010 – WE STILL REMEMBER!

Sgt. Buddy James Hughie

HUSBAND, FATHER, SON, FRIEND

KILLED IN ACTION FEBRUARY 19, 2007

TWO BRONZE STAR (medals) WITH VALOR, PURPLE HEART

Entered into eternal rest serving in Operation Enduring Freedom

Afghanistan, Asia

 

Killed in Action (KIA) with a single shot from a Taliban sniper while rendering aid to Afghan Army Nationals.  Sgt Hughie went where no other dared.  He saved the lives of two men who were of a different race, a different religion, who lived in a foreign land and they spoke a different language. In the process, his heroic actions cost him his life.  Sgt Hughie stepped out and went where others refused go.

We love him and miss him dearly.  If you have not visited  the links “Our American Hero” and “Sgt Buddy James Hughie” on this home page please take time to do so and get to know our American Hero.  He is the one we knew as Buddy, the one with the radiant white smile who was always willing to help you with whatever needed to be done.  The world is a little darker without Buddy Hughie.

Enjoy your freedoms for they are bought with the blood from our American Heros.

      @Jingle; First welcome to my Blog.

      Second I visited your blog and read your “About Me” page. In there you state that English is not your first language and ask your readers to be patient. Understandable.

      Therefore let me point out that a greating of HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY is completely unacceptable. For many of us MEMORIAL DAY brings back memories of our loved ones who’s life was taken from us very prematurely.

      Although we do also remember the good times and wonderful memories of our dead family member…. Still…

      I prefer, “Have a good weekend. Thank you for your family’s sacrifice.”

      That’s my “being patient” version. lol

      I hope you understand.

    Mike,
    You told me about Buddy the last time I saw you. This is a moving tribute. As a fellow veteran I salute his memory.
