On patrol

Well, most of the battalion just got back from a four day mission to an area we haven’t been before. I’ll be posting an article with photos on Friday (I don’t want to get into the details now), but three of our guys were killed by roadside bombs and several others were injured. It’s been rough on all of us. A memorial service is being held on Friday. I’ll be covering the service with photos and will be sending back photos immediately. Please keep the families of those killed and wounded in your prayers. One of our fallen heroes is pictured in the photo of six guys sleeping below. He is second on the left. The photo was taken the day before he was killed.

Not an exciting job, but someone has to do it
