Another young soilder has laid down his life for his country. It was early Friday morning in America, while we all slept safely, that Sgt. Van Aalten paid the supreme sacrifice in another part of the world.
Those were the words that toped our local newspaper yesterday. Sgt. Van Aalten was 21. I don’t care who you are, you can’t help but feel the pain that this and all families feet at this time. So many men and women have unselfisly gave their lives for our country. I have been through 8 months with my DH serving in Iraq and we are looking at another deployment in Sept. 2008. While it is so hard to be without him, I do understand how he feels and why he does what he does. We are very proud of him and ALL of our service men and women.
