Army Pfc. Jeremiah J. Monroe, RIP

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan seem so far away, but they aren't as far as I think.

Army Pfc. Jeremiah J. Monroe 31, of Niskayuna, N.Y.; assigned to the 7th Engineer Battalion, 10th Sustainment Brigade, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry), Fort Drum, N.Y.; died Sept. 17 in Kandahar, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device.

Today, flags are being flown at half-staff here in Schenectady in his memory. This is the flag in Veteran's Park, at the foot of State Street Hill. I rarely put political messages in this blog and I hope this won't be seen as one. There's a web site I visit every day, to remember those lost. It's called Honor The Fallen.

Lest we forget.

The spammers have struck. Due to this I will be moderating all comments. Sorry for the hassle, but it's the only choice because I refuse to turn on word verification.
