Yeah, I saw that on hilzoy's FB and I thought she said 9 years.

FYI, it appears that (at least this morning) the Rocky Mountain News site, which we link to in the right hand column under Why He Went, is not up. Anybody know if it is a temporary problem, or is the site no longer active?

From everything written at the time, he sounded like a wonderful man. His reasons for going were his own, and may not accord with the views of many others, here or elsewhere, but he was an honorable man who lost his life much too early, to the sorrow it seems of everyone who knew him and many more who only read about him. RIP.

Ugh. I went from work in tears that day. Didn't he have the dubious honor of being the first soldier killed that year.
Sigh at the world.

I missed the notifications, but swung by here because I was reminded of MAJ Olmstead by a foofrah on Twitter where someone was using dead veterans to score political points, mainly because I'm pretty sure he would have disapproved.
I'm pleased, and maybe a little surprised, to see the place still in such good repair.
