    Rest in peace dear Soldier. As I mentioned before, I pray God will bless and watch over your family. Thank you for going overseas to protect your fellow Americans. You are an American Hero. May God bless and be a shield unto our men and may he free and bring home our MIA. Someday we will all be together, the sun will shine brightly…we will be in a better place.
