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
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.
Today as you storm the beaches remember those whom stormed beaches long ago.
Enjoy your freedoms for they are bought with the blood from our American Heros.
