"I was going through the slideshow of pictures on MSNBC ‘Year in Pictures’ and saw the caption ‘An Army wife grieves’. I paused, as I read the caption that told a brief story of U.S. Army Spc. Bryan Quinton, 24. As a consultant who travels weekly by plane I come across many soldiers either returning or going to the battlefield, seldom reflecting on what the true cost of fighting for freedom is. I just want to say to you and your family, Thank You for such a high cost that Bryan lay on the alter of freedom. May God Bless you and keep you, remember he is with you always. Merry Christmas"
Peter of Jacksonville, FL
