Gutfuckingwrenching, and heart tugging in the extreme.

Obviously, a good dude.  May he rest in peace, and may his sacrifice not be forgotten.

I found his farewell post awfully moving, and think you will, too.  He was a soldier serving in Iraq, who asked the blogger to post his final thoughts only in the event of his death.

My love and wishes for his dreams, as expressed in his post, to his family and friends.
