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.

Very sad, God bless him and his family. Only met him here on the forum, seemed like a guy you would want on our side, honest and real. Again, God bless him and all that put it all on the line.
