Re: RIP Jason Kropat

I am sorry to hear that Kurt, he deserves more gratitude and respect than I could possibly show for his sacrifice. If there is anything I can do to help, I am just a phone call away.

Re: RIP Jason Kropat

Still don't know the story just yet and the whole family has been told not to talk to the press but I think this has something to do with it:

No, not one of my greater moments fur sure...lol.

I have two buddies who are medics over there and one who works as a RN in a field hospital.

One guy basically just got out of recovery from a hummer accident while rushing to the scene of a firefight.

Scary place to be.

Re: RIP Jason Kropat

My condolences to you and your family.

"Thank you" can never be said enough to all those that serve to protect us here at home, as well as, helping others around the world that can't protect themselves.

ITs hard to type words to express that level of sorrow. Best wishes to you and farewell to a brother in arms.
