Last Monday....

....Lt Mark Daily was killed in Iraq. A UCLA graduate, Lt. Daily was named ROTC's outstanding cadet in his region in 2005 and distinguished Military Graduate. Read what this 23 year old wrote on his MySpace, to explain his enlistment into military service.

Hat tip: Hugh Hewitt

His funeral will be next Saturday, and is open to the public (details can be found here).

Family's request: Donations are being accepted to carry out Mark's wishes for a family celebration of his life in Oregon. Checks can be made payable to Janet Daily and sent in care of Jeanne Hunter, 22 Stonecreek North, Irvine, CA 92604.

He hated bullies.

I read this fine young man's letter on Indigo Red's blog. He's the administrator of "Wednesday Hero". This man was extremely corageous and patriotic, and we all should be very proud of him.

He was well-written; probably moreso than John Kerry, who slighted our troops for being in the military only because they were either poor or undeducated or both! The difference in character between fine men like this and people like Kerry should be obvious to one and all.

May God wrap his arms around Mark and help his family and friends with their grief.
