Default R.I.P. PFC Brian Backus

Got word today a local soldier was killed in Afghanistan Saturday. He graduated from my High School in 2008 with my cousin, his dad was on the FD with my dad and is currently on the local EMS with him. He gave the ultimate sacrifice so we can be safe in the land of the free. Can't thank him enough, and i'll never forget it. Rest in peace PFC Brian Backus. Hooah

Those who serve and the friends and families of those who serve know differently. I'm sad to hear another has made the ultimate sacrifice.

Those Westboro fucks are gonna be here protesting now. Patriot Guard is already here, but i'm still pissed off. I live right across the street from the High School where the funeral is going to be, one foot on my lawn and the shit is gonna hit the fan. If any of you Michigan members want to maybe assist in setting up a barrier, the town will more than welcome you!

Check out the link, it has a link to a PDF file of what these son of a bitches are sending around. It's just sickening. Read at your own risk.
