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.

This is terribly sad news. RIP Colock.

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 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

I sent you a PM, not sure if it went through. I'm over here right now, if you want to PM me his name, or just unit and province, I should be able to find out for sure.

My thoughts are with his family! RIP brother. Never met him in person but have talked hnting with him alot. I would like to offer up some cash for flowers if someone can guve us contact info for his family.  Maybe Hunt Wa can send something.
