How to honor Andy Olmsted

Hilzoy says:

A member of Andy Olmsted's family has just written me to say that if people want to do something in honor of him, they can send donations to a fund that has been set up for the four children of CPT Thomas Casey, who served under Andy and was killed while trying to help him. The address is here:

Capt. Thomas Casey Children's fund
P.O. Box 1306
Chester, CA 96020

Thanks so much.

The list of blog links to Major Olmsted's final words is amazingly long. What a stunning, poignant tribute.

Gary Farber has a report from Major Olmsted's funeral service. As before, if you click over - and you should - bring a box of tissues with you. The description of the "missing man" ceremony in particular really hit me hard.
