Well, damnit again. This just can't be... Updated

On the 8th of May I was notified by LTC Q (3rd Brigade Rear-Detachment Commander) that our Brigade has suffered the loss of two of our soldiers from HHT 3d BDE.

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.

Lord, throw open the gates of Your Kingdom and welcome these Heroes to their rightful home.

The Department of Defense announced today the death of two soldiers who were supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. They died May 8 in Salman Pak, Iraq, of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near their vehicle.

Killed were:

Sgt. Blake C. Stephens, 25, of Pocatello, Idaho.
Spc. Kyle A. Little, 20, of West Boylston, Mass.

Both soldiers were assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Ga.
