May they Rest In Peace and our prayers are with their loved ones. So sad.
So sad. May they all rest in peace with the Lord. Prayers will be said for this family.
Rest in peace noble one. =*(
Trooper Cantrell risked his life for his country, and he gave it for his children.
I can think of no more honorable way to live and die.
May we all recognize his sacrifice for innocents; others, as well as his own.
De Oppresso Liber!
Duty, HONOR, Country, This, we’ll Defend.
At Ease, Soldier, You are relieved.
Great picture of a true hero.
