In Memory of a Fallen Hero

My friend, Staff Sgt. Gary "Lee" Woods Jr. was killed Friday morning in Mosul, Iraq by a suicide bomber. This was his 3rd tour in Iraq and he was only 24. Lee leaves behind a young wife who was his high school sweetheart, his parents, his step-parents and 7 siblings. Lee was a good Christian young man that only had 4 months left on his tour. Please pray for his wife and family during this difficult time.

"Go Rest High on That Mountain. Son Your Work on Earth is Done..."

A salute from a fellow soldier for giving the ultimate sacrifice.
"All gave some, some gave ALL. "
If I could speak to Lee now, I would say:

"Thank you for your willingess to sacrifice your life in order to keep us and our country safe. You truly are a hero and a man that I am honored to have called my friend. Rest in Peace and God Speed."
