Really cool soldier. Dedicated, don't forget dedicated!

I read this story on Yahoo this morning. This soldier was ready to defend our country, no matter what.

Take some time to read the story. One of his fellow soldiers is a local boy from Spokane, small world. :)

Soldiers from the U.S. Army First Battalion, 26th Infantry take defensive positions at firebase Restrepo after receiving fire from Taliban positions in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan's Kunar Province on Monday May 11, 2009. Spc. Zachery Boyd of Fort Worth, TX, far left was wearing 'I love NY' boxer shorts after rushing from his sleeping quarters to join his fellow platoon members. From far right is Spc. Cecil Montgomery of Many, LA and Jordan Custer of Spokane, WA, center.

These men and women help to keep us free. Weather we agree with why, how long, or what they are over there for, we should say thank you.

For some reason the picture makes them look like children. I don't have the time to read the story right now but I'll try and get to it later.

They look like children because many of them are little more than children. Hug a soldier today!
