Take A Minute...

Take a minute in your busy lives to give a small prayer of thanks for the men and women of our armed forces. And while you're at it, think about this young man and the Eagle Lake, Texas, family who still grieves for him.

His name is Clint Gertson (he is with God, he still has his name). He served as a sniper in a Stryker Brigade. He was killed in Mosul, Iraq, on 19 FEB 05.

Cookie over to the Cook Shack knows the family; they are outstanding Americans, you know the type - average hardworking citizens - and would appreciate your acknowledgement of their son/brother's sacrifice. The Gertson's have another son, Matt, who also served in Iraq as a medic.

So humor me, take a walk over to the Cook Shack where there is a brief tribute to the memory of Clint Gertson and drop a line for these folks. Let them know that their loss was our gain, and that we share their grief. And let me know how you like the Taco Soup recipe.
