My prayers to the family and all the families of armed service members. It's a tough burden having someone close to you putting their lives on the line. I salute your cousin and all that he did.

I'm very sorry for that to have happened, WV. That's a really big hurt for those kids and his wife. I've said some prayers for them. His efforts do not go unappreciated. One of my best friends, an Iraqi, has lost at least one dozen family members to similar, senseless acts of violence, and he's stated so many times how much worse it would be if brave men and women like your cousin Chuck weren't there to help them out. The "good" people in Iraq are very thankful and appreciative.

So sorry to hear this pacman. Your cousin is a true hero and my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. God Bless!!
