I am so so sorry for you loss.
As a former soldier, I've lost too many of my brothers and sisters.
Even those I've never met, I can't read about them without balling like a baby.
These are my heroes. When I read about the way your son's picture was stolen, and used, I
got physically ill.
I am so so sorry that you're family has had to endure not only the loss of your family
member, but now to have to go through this, it's too much.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for your son's sacrifice, he gave his all so that I may
be free, that I can raise my daughter in this country that I love, we owe him and those like him
a debt that can never be paid.

than a million times.  I won't ever forget him...just wanted you to know.

Your friend,

explosive device.
