It's always bad when some one in the services of our country is KIA, but even more so when he is from the state I'm from, not to mention assigned to the same division as my self. May he rest well with his ultimate sacrifice for our country.

Please put pressure on your Congress people and whoever to get us out of this pre-9/11 pre-planned, invasion. Apparently there are people at the highest levels of our government that are sociopaths. Condolence to the family and friends.

You can always tell a dedicated soldier when you see one. My family and I are proud of Brian's dedication and sacrifice, we are sorry for his loss.
