    Who went thru WWII and the Korean War, coming home a "whole" person but got MRSA at the Veterans Hospital November 2005.  By September 2006 he was gone.  It's pretty ironic that he got thru both conflicts but died from a resistant bacteria he got at home...

    You Will Not Be Forgotten

    This is for SSG Steve Reynolds who was a great leader and served in Iraq for two years.  He was a great friend and it hurt to speak at his memorial service a little over a year ago.  But I know he is in a better place and gave the ultimate sacrifice.
