Fasting today

Today I am joining in on a fast in honor of Sgt Mike Stokely who was KIA one year ago today. He was 23 years old. Please go here to read about this brave hero.

"SGT Mike StokelyE Troop 108th CAV 48th BrigadeGA NATL Guard US ArmyBronze Star and Purple Heart KIA IED near Yusufiyah 8/16/05God, Family, Duty, Honor, Country"

And finally this comment from Robert Stokely on Tanker Brothers blog: "Cindy Sheehan says her son didn't die for a just cause; Mike Stokely died just because - he loved his family, his friends, his country, understood his duty, did it with honor, and bravely served his country by giving his life when called upon in the service of his country. To understand a just cause, you have to live for one; if one is willing to live for a just cause, they flinch not if asked to die for one. Mike Stokely didn't flinch."

Have a good day all. And please keep Mr. Stokely and family in your thoughts today.
