The fallen

I've had numerous students who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now one is gone. 1st Lt. Leevi Khole Barnard was killed in Baghdad. He took my Latin American Politics class several years ago, and graduate with a degree in Political Science. "Sad" is the word that keeps coming to my mind, but it doesn't do this justice. I guess nothing really can.

I'm sorry you lost your student. My thoughts are with you and the Lieutenant's friends and family.

I'm also sorry to hear about that. I've had only a handful ROTC students come through my classes, but I often think of them when I read about Iraq/Afghanistan.
