There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for his friends and country. My sympathy and gratitude to my neighbors.

What a tragedy. Why do we keep on going with a battle that will never end. We are losing great men and women everyday in these worthless confrontations. RIP Capt Jones. Thank you!
