    How do I get your group to show on my FaceBook…my husband & I are neighbors of the parents of a fallen soldier, Joseph D Johnson, lost June 16, 2010. We’d like to make you group more visible to the community.

    I think on the bottom of the page there is a “share” link that will place the page on your facebook page

    I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking for a story of a fallen military personnel.

    Every year on Memorial Day I have a family/friends cookout and I look for a story of one of our military personnel that has given his/her life for our Country and Freedom. Your family was our Honored guests this year and I have a card for Your Family. Would you be so inclined to email me an address where I can send a card and letter to your family?

    Thank you.

      Please keep in mind that we are not parents of our fallen soldier, Joseph D Johnson…just neighbors of his wonderful parents. We do have 2 grandsons in Afghanistan right now and a grandson-in-law serving here in the states.
      This past year since Joe die [June 16, 2010] has been so emotional and we can only imagine what it’s like for all Fathers and Mothers of Our Fallen Heros. Thank you for your time.
      Later with prayers for all of you and yours.

        When you get a chance, thank your grandsons and grandson in law and tell them to “take luck”.

  4. I came across your blog when i was searching for Gold Star Dads and I must admit I love reading your blog.Alot of what you have written about your experiance after losing your son is something that many of us have in common, and have gone through. I lost my son Tyler Troyer in Iraq in 2005, and it had a profound effect on our family.
    I am sorry that we have this in common, but I thank you for putting your thoughts down for others to read and learn.I put up a website 3 years ago for my son….complete with a blog too.I admit though, that I have not done a good job posting on it.I plan on reading more of your entries…and maybe, I will find some inspiration to writing on on my sons blog more.

    How can I send you an attachment through here? It’s a pdf of a blog I used to keep. Among other topics I used to follow the DoD e-mail service (I still get the e-mails) and post about individuals during Iraqi Freedom.
    In 2008, I stopped keeping the blog. I am back in the States temporarily for school. Tonight, I just thought of your family and your son. I have a 4-year old boy now. Much has changed. My respect and deep feelings for our men and women have not.

    I just wanted to send you the pdf and let you know there are still people out there who think of you all,
