  1. This soldier was my friend for about 3 years..
    Heard the news today and felt that punch and sick feeling in my gut....
    I helped him with building guitar amplifiers..this was his hobby and passion.... he leaves behind his wife and young kids...
    He was an 18 Delta....
    I still have a box he mailed me not long ago full of electronic parts.... I think I will build an amplifier in his honor with these parts...

    Go bhfaighe a anam agus anamacha na bhfíréan suaimhneas síoraí. Amen
