    How sad, to have died the day before his 21st birthday.
    How brave. So many owe our lives and freedom to these young men. Willing to die so that we may live, and thrive. My heart goes out in deep gratitude to him, Allen S. Stroud, and all the other fine, brave, honorable young men who sacrificed for us (and continue to). Thank you!
