To Remember GySgt. Shawn Lane

I am stationed in Okinawa, Japan.

This is a great reminder of my friend and fellow communicator GySgt Shawn Lane. He and I were promoted to GySgt (E7) together and ate lunch often while we were stationed at HQBN Comm Co, 1st MARDIV.

I saw him last at lunch the day before I went overseas. His wife and son were his life and we talked about our families ad nauseum (to others I am sure). When I learned of his death I was devastated, and even more so because I was stationed in Japan but in Korea on an exercise and could not fly to Camp Pendleton and pay my respects. To this day I miss him. I wish blessings to his family and to all who remember him.
