Congratulations and condolences to his family for his sacrifice. It typifies what is going on over there daily as our young men and women die in the defense of freedom.
My own father died in battle, and I feel for any family that loses one of its members in war. Regardless of the medal given, it cannot replace them or define them. We can only recognize their bravery, and remember that freedom is not free.
