Truly heartbreaking.

On July 25, a particular soldier was submitted to Soldiers' Angels for adoption. Two days later, he was killed. He was 21. This was the message that we received with his adoption submission:

THIS SOLDIER HAS BEEN THRU A LOT IN THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS AND CAN REALLY USE SOME MAJOR ANGEL SUPPORT. TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM.

So now, I send that same message up to God and all of His Angels:

This soldier has been through a lot in the last couple of months and can really use some major Angel support. Please, Lord, watch over Spc. Edward Myers--and all of our fallen heroes. Amen.

This is so sad.
This sadness has happened more than 1000 times in this conflict. That's the real tragedy.
