Shawn Hill, a hero gives his life in Afghanistan on Jan. 2, 2008


I will be sending this card to Shawn's wife, Julie. Their neighbor was kind enough to tell us about Shawn at our VFW District meeting this past Saturday. Shawn was a husband and father of 3 sons. He had been in the National Guard since February of 1996. His friends called him a gentle giant. Fellow soldiers called him Superman and Pit Bull. He was a leader in the battlefield and will be remembered for his strength of character, his love of people, his willingness to drop whatever he was doing to help anybody, his big smile and equally big heart. I am thankful for my country and my freedom. I am mindful of the sacrifices made by heroes and their families for that freedom. I hope you will send a thank you card to a soldier this week. Go here to get the address to send a card ... http://lauraevangeline.blogspot.com/2007/08/operation-thank-troops.html
My prayers are with the family of Shawn Hill.
