To Honor the Fallen: April 15th to April 22nd, 2013

This week the nation experienced tragic terrorist activity in Boston during the Patriot Day Marathon at the hands of two young brothers. We mourn with the country for those that were killed and injured. Our hearts are saddened for everyone who had to witness that terrible act and the chaos that followed immediatley after and during the manhunt in Watertown, MA.

I am happy to state that no military service members were killed this week in OEF. However, I will be listing the names of those lost at the Boston Marathon bombing. If you would like to help and/or donate to the families of those who lost loved ones, please click their names below. If you would like to help or to those that were seriously injured, please click here and scroll down to “General Funds.”


If you haven’t read these posts before:

Every Monday I will write the names of those service members that have been KIA or pronounced as POWs in the past week in order to honor and remember them.

April is the month of the Military Child. Please say an extra prayer for those children who lost their parents this week and in the past.

If you know of someone who has been KIA or pronounced a POW in the last week that I did not mention below or if you would like a loved one written on a post that was KIA or POW’d in the past, I would be happy to add them. Please comment or email me at barefootandboots at gmail dot com.

Boston, MA
