To Remember Zach McBride
I wanted to continually remember Zach McBride, the son of a friend of mine who was KIA in
Iraq in January 2008 during the surge of troops into the areas north of . Zach was also a childhood playmate of my own son, who will receive his Army commission in 2010 and will probably face similar dangers. I think of all those killed in previous wars (WWII, WWI, etc.) who no one remembers except in the abstract. This remembrance. However, is real. I knew Zach. One day those who knew Zach will be gone also. Until then I will keep faith with his memory and pray for my own son.
