Memorial Day

Going to take a break from posting today to reflect on those who have fallen in battle/have some family time.

This post is dedicated to MAJ Jason George, CPT Ben Sammis, CPT Chris Kenny, CPT Joel Cahill, CPT Sean Sims, SSG Jens Schelbert and SPC Russell Hercules- along with all the others who did not come back- Godspeed to you all and gratitude to your families. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you all- my dear friends- there but by the grace of God go I.

Here's also a special mention to Chris Hondros- Getty Images photographer who died in Libya during the recent fighting. Although he wasn't a member of the U.S. military, I got to know him in Iraq during the troop surge of 2007-08. He was often right there in harm's way with the rest of us, putting himself in danger to provide the images that showed the work the troops were doing. He was a true pro and a good friend- every one of us in uniform who knew Chris respected him and it was almost as if he were one of us. We miss you, Chris. When an RPG took his life in the Libyan city of Misurata, he was no doubt doing what he loved- following his life's calling.

Bruins 2011 Draft Watch will be back tomorrow with a composite "Guy You Should Know" post- the last of the series before we get into the daily top-20 countdown on June 1st.

Also- B2011DW will be at the NHL draft combine starting Thursday- we'll have video and interviews posted that evening after our first media availability, so be sure to check back regularly for features and what's hot in the rumor mill.

Thanks for your continued support.
