6:30PM: Oh, and while I didn't get to IM with my son today, the "blackout" has been broken as I had an IM from V -- his best buddy there -- and they are all fine, just working a lot with the increase in AIF activity...
9:30PM And now we know the reason for the blackout:
The Department of Defense announced today the death of two soldiers who were supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. They died April 19 in Baghdad, Iraq, when a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device detonated near their dismounted patrol. Both Soldiers were assigned 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division, and Fort Stewart, Ga.
The soldiers are:
Spc. Jacob M. Pfister, 27, of Buffalo, N.Y.
