Deuce Four loses a Man

Michael Yon has reported from Mosul on the death of a Deuce Four Member. PFC Nils Thompson, just turned eighteen, was killed by a sniper. I offer PFC Thompson’s family my heart felt condolences. I know it won’t help but your son was truly a hero to the whole country.

Here’s and excerpt of Michael’s story :

“Sunday, August 07, 2005

“God’s Will”
Mosul, Iraq

PFC Nils Thompson had just celebrated his 19th birthday the day before. Nils was deeply religious, and would go to Catholic and Protestant services. He was a great kid and everybody liked him; but we were in downtown Mosul searching for the sniper that killed him, and had to stay focused.”

Go over to Michael’s Blog and read the entire story.
