And while you remember Okinawa, say a prayer for my brother. Some of you may have heard about the roadside bomb in Afghan that killed 4 soldiers. My brother was in the vehicle in front the one that got hit. He had to deal with the bodies, lift them into the helicopter and stare at them on the air-evac flight back to base. He's still dealing with the shock.
Prayers up for your brother, Z!
What is your brother's first name, Zhang?
Prayers up in any case, and pass along my thanks for his service to his country.
