**This was a post I did in May of 2008 and I thought it was perfect for Memorial Day. If you get an opportunity, watch Taking Chance with Kevin Bacon, so good.
A 24 year old soldier from Commerce was killed in Iraq last week, Chad is doing the funeral. This funeral has brought out a lot of emotion in our house, my eyes water every time I think about it. All I think about is his wife and two kids that said good bye to him a year ago and won't ever speak to him again. Chad said that the outpouring of support is amazing and there is nothing like a military funeral.
