Headed to the mountains of Colorado for a family reunion, so I will not be posting through Memorial Day.
Thanks for reading and supporting the blog- I’ll work on some fresh content when I return.
Don’t forget why we get the time off, but here’s just one reason:
Specialist Russell Hercules from Murfreesboro, Tennessee…he drove for me in Iraq in 2007-08 during the Surge when we were with the 4th Brigade, 1st Infantry Division in Southern Baghdad. We came home in April ’08 and then he ended up with the 101st Airborne and in Afghanistan about a year later. In October, 2009, he was killed in action. He left behind a wife and infant son.
