As the wife and I sat and watched the news last night, the local station did a story on a local boy, an Army Sniper, named Adam, who was killed in a bombing in Mosul. I was frantic. I sat down and quickly tapped out a message to Kim. Here is what I wrote, typo's and all:

Yes, I'm afraid that Adam Plumondore is the "Adam" in the Walter-Adam Fund. I'm trying to deal with this, as I write to you.
Folks, this boy gave his life for us. I don't even know where to begin. He didn't know me. But he gave his life to protect us, to protect OUR FREEDOM!
God Speed Soldier. Thank You for Keep My Family and I safe. Rest in Peace..
