A Fallen Soldier

Until yesterday, I was unable to say that I had never personally known a fallen soldier.  Unfortunately, Loren Buffalo's tour in Afghanistan ended before it was meant to (he was supposed to come home April 1).  I've known Loren for about 5 years.  I met him when I was a Senior in high school when he came to visit his grandparents who had moved down the street from my home in AR.  My heart is incredibly heavy today as I think about this situation.  Loren is a 20 year old man who sacrificed his life for our country.  I will forever be grateful.

Here's a link to Loren's story.
