MSG Andrew McKenna - RIP


First Sgt. P. Andrew McKenna, U.S. Army Special Forces, was killed Friday in a suicide bombing attack in Kabul, Afghanistan. A 1998 graduate of Mt. Hope High School, Sgt. McKenna was finishing his sixth tour of duty overseas — five in Afghanistan and one in Iraq.

RIP, brother.

Thank you for your service, and your sacrifice.

You will not be forgotten.

Prayers out.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

Rest in Peace.
Understand the problem; pull your weight. Appreciate. Be completely honest and trustworthy in all things. - Jeff Cooper

Practice honesty and integrity; rescue the man who has been wronged from the hands of his oppressor; do not exploit the stranger, the orphan, the widow; do no violence; shed no innocent blood in this place. Jer 22:3

Rest in peace, brother. I'll see you at the ORP. Prayers out.

No one knows whether you're a genius or an idiot until you open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Don't know where I'm goin', but there's no use in bein' late.
I've never been lost. I've been a mite confused at times, but never lost.
I'm not lost! I know where I am; I just don't know where everybody else is.
