On losing a son to war

with 2 comments

I have a son.

And so, I mourn the loss of this son.

I only knew Jason Shay through the blogosphere and his posts on through amber lenses.

He was killed in action on September 3rd at the age of 22.

Alex Horton, a fellow soldier and blogger, has posted a very fitting tribute here.

  1. I have no children but still mourn the death of this brave young man — another of our best and brightest. My heart goes out to his parents.
