Our country will never forget the ultimate sacrifice paid by you and your family for our freedom, PFC Hudson. Rest in peace, brave soldier.

All gave some, but some gave all.

The Mansions of the Lord

To fallen soldiers let us sing

Where no rockets fly nor bullets wing

Our broken brothers let us bring

To the Mansions of the Lord

No more bleeding, no more fight

No prayers pleading through the night

Just divine embrace, eternal light

To the Mansions of the Lord.

Where no mothers cry and no children weep

We will stand and guard though the angels sleep

Through the ages safely keep

The Mansions of the Lord.

God Bless the family and friends of...

Army Pfc. Christopher E. Hudson

21, of Carmel, Ind.; assigned to the 2nd Squadron, 12th Armored Cavalry Regiment, Fort Hood, Texas; died March 21 when his military vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device in Baghdad.

Christopher E. Hudson's mom noticed something special about her child when he was in the second grade. As he flipped through a book, Sally Hudson thought he was only looking at pictures. But when she asked him questions, she said, she realized he had taught himself how to speed-read. Pfc. Christopher Hudson, 21, died March 21 after his Humvee drove over a bomb outside Baghdad. He was based at Fort Hood, Texas. He attended high school in Carmel, Ind., but left because the curriculum wasn't challenging, his mother said. He earned a GED certificate instead. Before his death, Hudson had survived two other attacks on his Humvee and a confrontation at a checkpoint with a man who threatened to kill him with a machine gun, Sally Hudson said. Her son reacted quickly and shot him. "He didn't tell me that was the only person he had to kill," she said. "But he left here a boy, and I didn't hear that in his voice. All the boy was gone. It was just soldier and man." He also is survived by his wife, Michelle, and their two young children.

Christopher's Dad, Mr. Hudson, told me that his son had a photographic memory from the time he was a small child and that he developed the skill of a speed reader at a very young age. It seems Christopher was very touched by the faces of the young Iraqi children he came into contact with and felt that his mission was good and right, when he looked into their faces.

Heaven has a new angel and he watches over the little children. Rest in peace dear Christopher.

I am honored to have met the parents of Pfc. Christopher Hudson. They are good people and great Americans.

May God watch over them always.

Wow! What can you say? The loss is tremendous! Words aren't enough to honor the sacrifice and tears can not bring him back.

God has another angel to help watch over this soldiers family.
God bless you and thank you for your sacrifice.

Thank you for the great sacrifice that Private Hudson and his family gave to secure the liberties that so many of us take for granted. He was a liberator to the Iraqi people and a watchman on the wall for the United States. May God bless his family and fill up the emptiness of their vessels with comfort and kindness.

Since I am a bit of a "hobbit-head", and I know that Tolkien understood the nature of war, I submit a quote from "Lord Of The Rings: Return of The King"

[Theodin, King of Rohan] upon his dying:

"My body is broken. You have to let me go...I go to my fathers, in whose mighty company I shall not now feel ashamed."

With Respect and appreciation for the ultimate sacrifice,

A.A.C.

Soldier rest, Gently pressed,
To the calm, Mother Earth's
