Yesterday, I read the story about a Jerome  man who lost his life serving this great country.  I did not know him.  But I know lots of you did.

Sgt. Daniel J. Brown lost his life over the weekend in Kandahar, Afghanistan by an IED.  He was just 27-years old and leaves behind a wife and twin daughters.

My fiancé went to high school with him and was pretty upset about it last night.  A friend of ours told us that Sgt. Brown didn't even get to see his twin daughters, because they were born when he was overseas.  When I heard that, that's when it hit me.  I was having a pretty horrible day on Monday, but once I heard that, I stopped thinking of myself and thought only of the loss Sgt. Brown's family must be feeling.  Of the pain.

Whether you knew Sgt. Daniel J. Brown or not, I know that he had to have been a very brave, good man, to risk his life for this country.  Words cannot explain the gratitude, respect, and love I feel for this man.  Yet, I have never met him.

I want to get to know him better and I'm sure his family would love to hear all your memories of Sgt. Daniel J. Brown.  Please share those memories below.  And never forget.

God Bless America.
