I am so so sorry to hear that. Did he have a wife or any kids that he left behind?
We will all be thinking about you and his family.
I know how you feel though. Being that my 28 yr old cousin passed away not even a month ago in a house fire. I know she wasnt in the military and serving our country, but, its one of the most horrible things when someone so young passes. Its hard to deal with.


#15

he has a wife…no kids but they just bought a house


#16

Sorry for your loss dude… I wish it would’ve been avoided. My best friend is over there right now.


#17

its funny you really don’t think about it as much until it hits so close to home

Re: RE: friend just past away in Iraq

I know exactly what you mean.
I mean, I work in the ER and see all kinds of people die from anything to car wrecks to gun shots to house fires. But when it happens to someone your close to, it hits home so hard.


#19

yeah
