What a sad story. Being a retired veteran of 37 years I had the experience of transporting many fallen soldiers back to Dover AFB. It was always very emotional for me. To lose 2 sons is unthinkable. My prayers and thoughts go out to the family of these two family members. It seems as our military involvement draws down in the middle east the public's memory of our soldiers sacrifices slowly diminishes. This can't be allowed to happen. Stories like this must be told.
