    There are those in the world who would kill us in our beds at home in the middle of the night.
    Thank you for the American soldiers risking their lives to protect us from those that would kill us.

    Thank you Pfc James J. Harrelson.

    Godspeed.

    My heart aches for all that knew this fine soldier. My prayers are with all. May he rest in peace.

    I'm pretty sure that my best friend's brother is in the same infantry company in Ft. Riley. Strikes close to home here too.
