Remembering Mike Spann and others

Remembering Mike Spann and others

The first American killed in the Afghan war, on November 25, 2001.

I’ve told his story before (also here), but it is worth remembering every year.

As we just finished Hanukkah and approach Christmas, we also remember the others featured previously at Legal Insurrection, Jonathan Daniel Porto, U.S. Army, Spc. Dennis Weichel , Lt. Roslyn Schulte and Melissa Harrington Hughes.

I thank God for these men and women who gave their lives for our country. May God rest their soul. And may God bring comfort and sustenance to their families especially during this difficult time of the year.

I teach, and most mornings we assemble outside for prayer, the Pledge of Allegiance and announcements…the sight of the flag waving high on the schoolyard pole often brings
Mike Spann to mind. I say a special pryer for him and all of America’s fighting forces through the ages who have fought and died for our freedoms, and those fighting now.
