I don't know if he had a family or children. The articles about him don't say; they describe how he is the first troop the press has been allowed to film since Pres. Obama and SECDEF Gates have lifted the ban on media coverage of those killed in war.
I thank him for his service and his sacrifice. I hope those who survive him in his unit and at home can find peace. I didn't know him, but I will remember him.
