Damn. Just Damn.

On the 8th of April I was notified by LTC Q (3rd Brigade Rear-Detachment Commander) that our Battalion has suffered the loss of two of our soldiers from B/2-69 AR. The soldiers lost their lives while conducting combat operations in Iraq. The next of kin of our fallen soldiers have been notified. I ask you for your prayers for these Sledgehammer soldiers and their families.

I ask for your prayers, too. Will update with info on our Heroes when available.


DoD Identifies Army Casualties

The Department of Defense announced today the death of two soldiers who were supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. They died April 8 in Baghdad, Iraq, when their unit came in contact with enemy forces using an improvised explosive device and small arms fire. They were assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Ga.

Killed were:

Staff Sgt. Harrison Brown, 31, of Prichard, Ala.
Pfc. David N. Simmons, 20, of Kokomo, Ind.

I ask your prayers for the families of SSG Brown and PFC Simmons... and for all our Soldiers and Marines, Sailors and Airmen who serve so bravely and whose families serve as well.

How it must break your heart to have to post this. My heart aches for their families and the friends they leave behind. I pray that God will grant them peace.

My husband is in 3rd Battalion but we have friends in all sections. I was scared to even open this. God Bless their families and help them pull through this. They are all in my prayers.

I was sorry to read about this. My prayers go out to these families and their squad buddies.

Is it okay if I link to it on our Local Bloggers page?
