Sir, thank you for your service

And the honor of your sacrifice.

Major Andrew Olmsted, soldier, blogger, died in ambush in Iraq.

I am so sorry.

Update 1/10: Hilzoy of Obsidian Wings has an update which tells more about Olmsted and the men who fought and died with him.

another wasted life --- blood on the hands of cheney, condi, chimpy and yes you laura, gates, mcconnell and especially nancy pelosi -- for NOT fighting to stop this madness

i feel for the family of Andrew Olmsted and the other almost 4000 men who went to fight and defend for chimpys ego and pocketbook

There are no words for this horror. And to honor Major Olmsted's request, we must not politicize his death.

But in sorrow there can be understanding.
