    New's reports are saying up to 22 dead when a mortar or some other kind of explosive round hits a mess hall on a forward operating base in Mosul, during lunch. Soldiers are from Task Force Olympia.

    I'll pray for him just as I am praying for all the others. As you probably know, I have been following one of my old units pretty closely and it sucks when they have to announce on their website a new death. I read one of the obituaries they posted at the site yesterday and my eyes just filled with tears.

    I've been ordering "Hero" Bracelets for those killed and me and my nephew (adopted son) where them in their honor.

    hero bracelets? where do you find those? i know some folks who would be very interested in purchasing them and wearing them to honor those who have fallen, not to mention myself.

    i hope the news accounts are wrong somehow and the numbers are much lower
