This just in from a blog I found via Blogexplosion. Another hero is lost to this war:
I do want to write about a Soldier that was lost recently. His name is Sergeant Alfred Barton Siler. He was 33 years old, and an 11 year veteran of the 278th Regimental Combat Team. He graduated high school in 1989 from Jellico High, TN. He is survived by his parents and a three year old daughter named Mikkah. How do you explain to a three year old that their dad is never coming home?
