R.I.P. Major

In case you haven't run across this...

the back story... Army Major Blogged About His Death

his last words... Andrew Olmsted's Last Blog Entry


"If you have it, throw 'Freedom Isn't Free' from the Team America soundtrack in; if you can't laugh at that song, I think you need to lighten up a little. I'm dead, but if you're reading this, you're not, so take a moment to enjoy that happy fact."

Can you imagine the guts it took to write this post?

May God bless his soul.

I hear you. Our military is awesome. That's all I can say without getting all weepy.

A hero, plain and simple. Thank goodness we'll have guys like him to keep us company when we get to Heaven, as well.

Thanks for honoring him, cube.

Thank you for bringing this post to my attention - without your blog I doubt I would have ever had the privilege to meet Major Andrew Olmsted.
