This past Friday a good friend of mine was killed while serving in Afghanistan. Major Brian Mescall was only 30 days from returning home when an IED struck his vehicle. The blast killed him and two others, and left a 4th Soldier in critical condition.
Brian is survived by his parents, his fiancee, Kirsten, and his 5-yr old son, Nathan. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of these Soldier's families.
