For a Friend's Son Killed in the Korengal Valley

I ordered a Memorial Bracelet in honor of the first fallen hero I stood in the flag line for as a Patriot Guard Rider. The young man was a TN State Trooper and a member of the TBI when he was called to serve in Iraq. He left behind his parents and his fiancee; next time they saw him he was in a flag-draped coffin. I have just place an order for a friend whose son was killed in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan on April 15th. It was all I could think of to do for him, besides making a donation in his son's memory. Every life lost is a tragedy; the least we can do is keep the memories of the fallen alive.
Ms T. - the second biggest troop supporter you never heard of...
My heroes wear combat boots. If you don't stand behind our troops, please feel free to stand in front of them.
