    I just had 2 friends of mine from my old unit tell me that one of my closest friends was killed a few days ago by an IED.

    This person made my transition from basic training cherry to the real Army so much smoother because he was one of the popular guys in the platoon.

    We hung out all the time in Korea and we got our first Iraq deployment together also. I got hurt and had to leave the Army but he went on his 2nd tour they were just a couple of months from the end of their tour too.

    I could not believe it when I first heard about it but then a 2nd person told me and now Im starting to.

    Ive been going on the DOD casualty website and I dont see his name but there are two people pending (as of 3:25am 1APR). God I hope his name dosnt come up. He isnt answering his Myspace so theres a bad sign.

    Even though they told me his family has already been notified Im not going to release his name until the DOD website releases it (but god im hoping this is a tastless early April fools joke by those guys in Iraq)

    I lost one of my closest friends 4 years ago in a terrible car accident, and i'll never forget that moment when i got the news.
    I really can understand what you're feeling right now. There are no words, just prayers, pain and misery.
