The finest Chateau of them all, IMO.

Tomorrow marks the two-year death anniversary of a close friend I served with. We had both wanted to get out of going to Iraq when our unit in Oklahoma received orders. I ended up finding a way to get booted out and he, despite his best efforts, went over there. This was almost 10 years ago. Not sure if his death was related to his time in combat or just the general health issues he dealt with, but I often reflect on it now that he's gone and I'm still here. To make matters worse, I had my FB deactivated when he was going through his troubles and died (his family won't disclose how but I'm guessing he unknowingly or knowingly killed himself). I didn't even know he died until months later when I reactivated it and mutual friends from the military were able to contact me. Anyways, I'm thinking of him today. The group of us had all planned on reuniting the last time we spoke. He left a newborn behind, too.
Be a Good One!

Sorry for your loss
Although I come from a military family, I can't even imagine how devastating war must be even to those who escape physically unscathed. I'm sure he'd be happy to know you're thinking of him
