These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

A blog that I visit daily had today's hero posted, and it nearly brought me to tears. I was just informed on Sunday that Justin was killed in the line of duty, and that my cousin was in his convoy when it happened. Family & friends of Justin would be honored to know that there are people like you giving thought to him today. Thank you.
