    Wow, I'm very sorry to hear this. I didn't know James, but I wish his family the best, and I pray for them. He died mounting the defense line, defending the medical supplies, a true, honorable man.

    It is the sacrifice of men and women like this that make it possible for the rest of us to enjoy the freedom and carefree lives we lead. All of us here at the Dented Helmet salute the sacrifice of those who have given their lives so the rest of us can live ours more fully.

    Thank you James. Our prayers go out to your family and friends.

    Such sad news to hear. You never know how high the price of freedom is until it hits home. Once it does, you never forget and you never take it for granted again.

    James, like so many others who have served or died in battle, carried the freedom of millions on his shoulders. I hope you find peace brother.

    There is no way to say "Thank You" enough but if we would like to honor this person and others it's a great time to make a donation to a military charity: Wounded Warrior etc...

    Some of these charities take care of families after a loved one is killed in the line of duty. College funds for their kids, bills etc. Cheers to you mate! God Bless!
