Sgt. Tristan M. Wade Among Those ‘Killed In Action’ Last Week – Week 12 Honor Post

Department of Defense

We have lost two more soldiers since last Monday’s post. Sadly, 90% of the population probably has no idea today who these two brave young men were or that they even existed for that matter. Freedom isn’t free at all; someone has to pay for it.  Please make it a point this week to go out of your way and thank a soldier.  It’s a good habit to get into!

KIA States last week: CA-IN
