Lowndes, Mississippi
KIA November 7, 2005 Iraq

SSG Brian L. Freeman

Our Son SSG Brian L. Freeman was killed 11-7-05. He
loved being a soldier and believed in what he was doing. He had been in
the Army for 8 years and had planned on reenlisting when he was killed.
He was the only soldier from Lowndes County, MS to be killed in Iraq in
2005. Some websites have his hometown as Lucedale, MS but he was from
Caledonia and everytime I see this error I email the website and most of
them have been kind enough to change it. He loved his family and we
would always hear from him at least once a week at times I still can't
believe he is gone and expect to hear his voice on the phone asking what
I'm doing.He had only been married 17 months to his lovely wife Leah and
they were waiting to start a family when he got back from Iraq. He was
suppose to come home in 15 days so we could celebrate an early
Christmas and we were all excited and then we received the awful news he had
been killed with 3 other soldiers by a sucide bomber. Instead of c!
elebrating an early Christmas we had his funeral. There have been
several memorials to honor him in fact we are in the process of putting one
up in our small town of Caledonia. The Army has been very kind to us
and helped us through this bad time in our lives. We know Brian is in a
better place and we will see him again someday we call him our angel
now. We also started a scholarship in his memory at Caledonia High School
we just gave away the second one this year. The prayers of our friends
and family have helped us through this time in our lives and with God's
help we have been able to make the best of a bad situtation. If you
read this remember the Freeman family in your prayers. Glen & Patricia
