But something in this blog post really caught my eye:
Once the details were taken care of, we were given a tour of Camp Reality. There is one father who is trying to raise money to get a bronze statue (of the rifle, boots, and helmet) placed in the hometown of each fallen soldier.
Has anyone heard anything else about this idea? I think it's a beautiful goal, and I'd be interested in donating and advertising this fundraiser. Any chance any of you know more about this man? Google wasn't much help.

I talked to him this morning, and I cant erase the huge grin from my face. He has a good job in the cellphone industry now, hes working on his MBA, and he just bought his second house, one for him to live in and another to rent out and build some equity. I laughingly told him that hes finally living the American Dream; he replied that he is doing so well that hes actually getting fat. I am so happy for him.
I need to check on our other friend, a Bulgarian who I swear wore the same shirt and pants every day when I first met him. Hes just finishing up his internship in med school.
What a wonderful country ours is.
