Army Spc. Nicholas A. Taylor Among Those Who Died For You Last Week – Week 29 [VIDEOS]

Military Times

When a soldier pays the ultimate price and lays down his or her life protecting the freedom of our great country it goes largely unnoticed. This week there are two names to report but that is two to many!

Every week I post names of those “who gave all” so I can pay my respects and remember why I have the freedom I enjoy today. As always, you don't need my permission to re-post this tribute.
