The following post is quoted in its entirety from Rivrdog's blog:
Present ArmsWhen you sit down to dinner tonight, you don't necessarily have to set an extra place at the table, but you should stop and reflect for a moment on all of the Americans who have given their lives so that we may have liberty and freedom here in the Unites States.
Today is the First anniversary of the death, in valiant military action, of Sgt. Adam Plumondore, USA.
Adam, I never knew you, but by handling a simple request from a man I respect greatly, Kim DuToit, I became involved in the honors ceremonies for your Return.
I post no links today, I am not trying to inflate my blogging statistics.
I'm just trying to help a grateful nation remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
I'm going to a country club for dinner tonight. I will have the waiter captain cause an extra place to be set for you, Adam. You won't be there in person, but you will be in spirit.
I promise you that, Sergeant.
Rest easy, Soldier.
