Wednesday Hero

This Week's Post Was Suggested By Cindy

1st Sgt. Jose San Nicolas Crisostomo
1st Sgt. Jose San Nicolas Crisostomo
59 years old from Spanaway, Washington
August 18, 2009
U.S. Army

Tidbits taken from
"Whatever fueled Crisostomo's contagious ability to bring people together was not quelled by four tours in Vietnam, nor even by the improvised explosive device that took Crisostomo from us on August 18, 2009. Crisostomo's disarming personality also affected Afghans, who "packed the memorial service for the man who was known for leading morning physical training by carrying an American flag as he ran around the track and always called the Afghans 'brother' and 'sister'. For any other soldier this kind of attendance may have come as a surprise, but not for Crisostomo. This remarkable individual possessed an innate gift that allowed him to connect with people across cultural lines under the most proscribing conditions."

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
