I am just absolutely reeling right now.  Floored by coincidence.

I have a friend in my knitting group whose husband died as a contractor in Iraq.  She has never been forthcoming with details, and I certainly have never wanted to pry.  But last week she let me know that an episode of Battlefield Diaries would be on the Military Channel, and that it was the attack her husband was killed in.

I had no idea he was killed in the convoy where Matt Maupin was captured.  Nor did I have any idea that I knew the lieutenant who led that convoy; Matt Brown and I were in youth group together in high school.

I am just stunned by the coincidence right now.

1 Thank you for linking to Matt Brown and Jeremy Church's story. I wonder how they're doing now.

Reading this reminded me of how I felt when I discovered my Obama connection.
