Today we awakened to the news that a friend my husband served with in a former unit was killed in Iraq due to and IED. Captain Ulises Burgos-Cruz was a husband, friend and soldier. He was one of the people in that unit that my husband truly liked and respected. Cpt. Burgos was one of the good guys. I remember my husband coming home with funny stories about him, and always with a smile on his face. Alan has the ability to know very quickly the heart of a person and he liked the heart of Cpt. Burgos. I did not know his wife well, but my heart goes out to her. She is in my prayers and I ask if you think of her to send up a quick prayer on her behalf. I can only imagine the pain and grief she is suffering. I understand she is expecting their first baby this summer.

This makes the third personal loss for me in this war.
