In Honor Of  Patrick Rudd
News just got back that you lost your life Saturday night while leading
your unit into battle. Our hearts are broken. Right now there are no
other words...too much sadness. We are so proud of you, and will never
forget what you did for our family and this country. I am so sad you are
gone, but forever in my heart.  You were so young, but all you ever
wanted to do was give.  I love you. Aunt Barrett

For William:
Thank you for your service to our great nation.
Though I didnt know you personally, we share the same name.
My family is originally from Madisonville, Ky.
My grandparents move to Akron during the great depression.
So im sure we are related in some way.
A friend informed me of your passing while serving your country.
You gave unselfishly in such a time when it wasnt popular.
So much has changed since my dad served in WW-2 and Korea.
Young people are so brain-washed by the media they just dont appreciate the freedoms our
forefathers worked so hard to provide for us.
So I just wanted to thank you and your family for making the ultimate sacrifice by guarding
the wall so we here at home could sleep a little easier at night.
Thanks, Mr Rudd.
