Yesterday, in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, an Army SSG Matthew V. Thompson, 28, was killed by an IED. He was from Irvine, California, but served here at the local Ft. Lewis, Washington as a member of the 1st Special Forces Group.
Flags in state will dip to half-staff. I wonder, does that really make anyone feel better?
