    “I am deeply sorrowed to learn of yet another unfinished life. My heartfelt condolences to this family and my warmest thanks go to this American Patriot.

    Brownwood falls within the West Texas PGR region. Once this becomes a confirmed mission and we receive details from them, we will post them.


    Airport Recovery: The following arrived in my in-box this morning. Robert also found out that the flight arrival at Brownwood Airport is expected at 2 pm. No info regarding the funeral service was included.


    Another hero has died for the liberty and freedom of America and Afghanistan. He has served with honor and integrity. His sacrifice will not be met with disdain. With honor and courage he served his country to the end. He lived his life of a soldier and a veteran to the best of his ability.
    A Veteran – whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve – is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a check made payable "To the United States of America", for an amount "up to and including my life". We will be there to show our support and honor for the sacrifices he and his family has made in support for this countries future.

    This will be an escort misson only.
