Army Pfc. William R. Edwards, age 23, is dead. He was killed August 11 in Arab Jabour by a sniper. He died for you and me.
Pfc. Edwards leaves his mother, Marykay Edwards and his father, William Lee Edwards Jr. to mourn his passing.
Active in the Boy Scouts, Edwards attained Eagle Scout status at age 15, rising to the post of senior patrol leader, he supervised 125 boys in his troop.
Pfc Edwards planned to go to law school.
Said Walter Brookhart, his scoutmaster, "I'm sure he was doing exactly what he wanted to do. He wanted to come to A&M and join the Marines or the Army." He was where he wanted to be at this point."
Griefcase extends sincerest condolences and profound gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Edwards for making the Ultimate Sacrifice, and wish them mourning joy all the days of their lives.
After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open what I lovingly refer to as a joy-nal, set a clock timer for ten minutes, and write something.
Go ahead. I dare you.
