Thats my cousin on the right. I just received this image two days ago. He has spent the past two years in training and has only been deployed in Afghanistan for just over 3 weeks.
Yesterday or today depending how you look at it his Hummer was hit with an RPG. I mourn his lose dearly now.
I was real close w/ him growing up, we took numerous hiking trips, paintball, and had plenty of good times together. His enthusiasm was infectious and we talked about enlisting together as kids quite often. Part of me feels I should have been with him.I know I probably would not have changed the outcome, but he deserved to be with family.
