Losing A Hero

The Iraq War has claimed the lives of thousands of American soldiers... this week we lost one of our own. Erich Smallwood... from Trumann, Arkansas, and a member of the 875th Battalion, died defending our freedom.

We became involved with the 875th through our participation in Operation Freedom Furlough last fall and have developed a special attachment to this group of men and women. Each loss is a tragedy... and losing one of the soldiers from right here in Region 8 makes it even more difficult.

Thank you, Erich Smallwood. You are a hero. We appreciate you and your commitment to our country.

May God bless your family and give them peace during this difficult time.
