    I'm so sorry for your loss, WVPacman. I will say prayers for his wife and children. Such a shame. I am very thankful for his dedication, bravery, and service, as with all of the men and women protecting our freedoms & keeping us safe around the world.

    Sorry for your loss WVPM. I tire of of seeing these men and their families suffer.

    I was with Chuck in Hawaii with 1-62. Not just an awesome man, but a truly great American soldier. You have my condolences and all of you are in my prayers. With much love and respect,
