Death of a soldier

Aaron A. Weaver died when a Black Hawk helicopter crashed last week in Iraq. He was, apparently, an exceptional soldier, having won the Bronze star for "extreme courage" in Mogadishu. He also had cancer, but insisted on being in Iraq. A sad tale and a good memory. I saw his mother interviewed on TV a few days ago and, through a river of tears, she asserted that her son would have wanted her to say upon his death that he did his duty for the country he loved. I was deeply moved. Let us hope that his wife and young children will summon up remembrance of good things past, and be able to, over time, talk of Aaron’s constancy and great heart and extreme courage, with true love. RIP.
