I just read this incredibly sad blogpost written from a solider in Iraq. He kept and maintained a blog about his life and experiences. In the event he was killed in action, he gave "one final post" to a friend of his to post when he died.
This is that post. It's very sad and also very encouraging. Grab your Kleenex and have a good read.
