I originally had this post done to publish at 3:00 PM today.  I was pumped because there was no one to honor again this week and that would have been two weeks in a row, which has never happened since I have been doing this every Monday for the last two years. I checked one last time at 3:00 PM and the DoD just listed a soldier from the United States Army who was killed yesterday.
