This is a timely piece that will tug at the hearts of every American who has lost a loved one to war. Loved the way you described the bonds of friendship throughout this entry--making this an upbeat story until the sad ending.
What a gift you are! May the peace of the Lord be with you.
Tears. 'You can bounce a quarter off our friendship.' Memorable. Thank you. God bless you.
Wow - what a powerful and emotional entry, it pulled at my heart strings. And, what a kind and wonderful soul this young man "goog" had...Oh how blessed those who knew him; He is with our Lord now as they rejoice in heaven. What treasured memories you share, hold on to them. I loved this and it was spot on for the "subject" matter. God Bless you and thanks for sharing this touching story...Thanks for keeping our country safe.
Beautiful story.
Beautifully written story and touching tribute to a real hero!
There's such a scope of emotion captured here, so descriptively and so sensitively.
Awesome voice! This is so well done, and just heartbreaking at the end. Great writing.
This is a perfect gem of a story!
