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
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.”
