Sitting here at work and tearing up. Don't even know what to say. This is heart wrenching. R.I.P. Colockumelk

my I suggest that the mods lock all other catigorys for a period of time to show respect for him ? I don't know if it's possible but seems like the right thing to do . Can't believe how choked up i'm getting and I only knew him through his words and stories he shared here on the forum ... really one of the great guys to have on our side  !

This is crappy.  Worst news I've had in months.  I simply have no other words.  I agree that we need a tribute on the site somewhere, somehow.  Seems more than fitting.

I am sitting here stunned and sad to read this. I have always had respect for colockumelk from reading his posts. He seemed like truly one of the good guys. I hope that someone will post something more about who he is so that we can learn more about who this hero was besides just his internet presence here. He will be missed by all.

The title of this thread sucks. The subject was a man of honor.
I respect all service members and fellow veterans.
Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Damn,

Was Clock attached to ISAF?
Apparently two people were killed by hostile fire yesterday while working with ISAF NATO. Names not released yet.

Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

I've been looking Alchase.   All I have found is the same that Addicted posted.    I looked for other news releases etc.   Nothing on the wire yet that I can find.

I'd never met him, but his brothers a great guy and I know that he looked up to him a lot when we were younger. Very sad news and I can't express how sorry I am for their loss.

I talked to my Troop intel guys and they had nothing for me yet. It didn't happen in my AO (otherwise I would've been onsite) so the reports aren't sent directly to us. They said if we have nothing tomorrow they can get into the system manually to find the report.

I'm speechless, not sure what to even say.
Prayers sent to his family. RIP Colockumelk, you will be missed.
