I think that was a very tragic loss, as are all the other casualties of this war. Hopefully it will all end soon.

It seems neblous - he was in health care when he retired. Was on a team training the Iarqi military - maybe a HTT type?

I find this report sad but uplifting at the same time. Sad in that our country lost one of its finest men; uplifting in that patriotism still exists. The spirit of '76 isn't completely gone.
