If you haven't read or heard about this yet, those of us who support the mission in Iraq and Afghanistan also have a "Rolling Fast" -- but ours is a Rolling VICTORY Fast ...
Today is the anniversary of the death of Sgt. Michael Stokley, the beloved and cherished son of Robert Stokley and his family, and I -- and many, many others -- are joining Robert in a fast today to honor Sgt. Mike and all that he stood for... fought for... and died for.
I have always felt a special kinship with Robert as a parent... of course, I cannot truly imagine his grief, but I understand completely the love for his child. It is especially meaningful to me because Sgt. Mike and I share a birthday.
Robert has written a moving tribute to his son over at the Tanker Bros. site... Please take a moment to read the tribute and to leave Robert and the Stokley family a message of support on this most difficult day.We are with you Robert. We will remember Michael always.CarlaSome Soldier's Mom Feel free to sign up for a day -- or two -- of the fast... in honor of our soldiers. It will do your body -- and your spirit -- good. You can order one of these t-shirts from Melinda at Most Certainly Not... all profits go to Soldier's Angels!!Copyright Some Soldier's Mom 2006. All rights reserved.
