These are 2 US Army Soldiers saluting a local fallen Marine from Hico, Texas. The fallen Marine hero was only 22 yrs old, and passed on Friday, Nov. 13, 2009 as he stepped on a land mind in Afghanastian (sp). I attended his Motorcade Escort on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2009.

What a sad, sad day. I am so very THANKFUL to all the Soldiers for what they do for their Countries!
