54 ...

He didn't die in combat,
he died in an accident.
He died in service to his country.
He died on foreign soil wearing his uniform.
His home town is not far from mine ...
The 54th to fall in Afghanistan
slid from the headlines almost un-noticed,
but his death has not been in vain ...
Today we remember him, and all his comrades:
Lest We Forget !!
