    Though I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing this Staff Sgt., a friend from my H.S. Alumni served with him. And as such, as well as a Military Girlfriend, and just a all around Proud American, I thought it necessary to honor and remember Staff Sgt. Fannin for his service to this country. He DID give all, and should NEVER just be a number on a roll call of casualties, just as the other troops who have gone on before and after him. These are America’s Hero’s, no one else. May God bless and keep the family, as it is the worse call, or car to see pull up that fateful day. I can’t imagine your pain. May his spirit live on in your hearts forever, and may he never be forgotten. All the prayers and love to you and all those lost within this tragedy and the others that we don’t know.
