We lost one of our own (Colockumelk)
« on: April 24, 2013, 05:22:38 AM »
this is the hardest thing I've had to do. Colokumelk was killed in action in the last few days along with 1 other soldier and 1 injured in Afghanistan.  I just got the call and I don't have much info. I'm just setting here praying they were wrong. if or when I know more I will pass it along. He was a good man and was proud to serve. I will be praying for his friends and family

Hate to hear that type of news.  Will join everyone in good thoughts and prayers for the family.
