This post isn't about my sons, though - it's about a young man who trained with our youngest son. Pfc Shane Reifert was killed last weekend in Afghanistan during a firefight with insurgents. His sister has created a blog, and you can read it here: My Fallen Soldier. Shane was a hero, and he gave his life for all of us.
My request is a simple one today. If you are a praying person, please send up a prayer for the men and women serving our country right now. And if you're not, send some positive thoughts. Our service members need all the support they can get.
