KIA

Just for those people who have forgotten the human cost of this war. This is a Facebook Update from my 18-year old stepson about the guys from his unit who have recently been killed in Afghanistan.

"Anderson got hit by an ied (broke his femar and had a bad concusion) Swingle also got hit by an ied broke his femar and hurt his back, the BC got back injuries from the same ied as swingle, doc mitchel got shot in the thigh, peak A. and Ward from Catt both were killed in a ied."

    Thanks for your kind words! It's amazing what those guys are going through and so many are so young.

  5. Hi Mary-

    Thanks for the comment. I've tried to access your blog and it won't let me. It says I haven't been invited.

  6. That's a pretty heavy status message. I think a lot of people forget about all of our troops still over there. I'm trying not to.
