RIP, Andy Olmsted

Army Major Andrew Olmsted, who was also a respected longtime blogger, was killed while serving in Iraq on Wednesday. Prior to going overseas, he wrote a blog post to be published in the event of his death, which you can and should read here. Be sure to bring some tissues when you do. Rest in peace, Major Andrew Olmsted.

(Please note Major Olmsted's wish that his death not be politicized. I will not approve any comments that do not respect this wish.)

Thanks for the link. And thanks for the warning: I actually made it through Andy's words in decent shape, but then I started going through the comments...

It's a reminder that we touch lives. How we do so is pretty much up to us, and Andy chose to do so positively. God bless him.
