Adam of Kim du Toit's Walter-Adam Fund was killed in Iraq.
I donated money to Kim's fund because, heck, snipers are cool. These boys even made it into my "hot" post. I feel for Kim because I know what it's like to have that feeling in your gut, the one where you think it couldn't possibly have hit that close to home.
From the battalion commander's eulogy:
How do you honor such heroes as Clint Gertson and Adam Plumondore? You honor them by telling the stories of their friendship, camaraderie, and fierce bravery. You honor them by continuing to fight to protect the man on your left and right who would lay down his life so that others might live. You honor them by continuing in this noble endeavor providing freedom to a people we do not know or understand the sacrifices that are made but that is what makes America the greatest nation on earth.
If I know Kim du Toit, he will never let anyone forget SGT Adam Plumondore.
