Another sad day for Massachusetts
I hate having to write things like this...Because when I do, it means that another family is suffering, another community is grieving and another unit is missing one of their own.
Massachusetts has lost 2 more of our bravest citizens to the wars in Iraq & Afganistan.
LCpl Kevin T. Preach USMC,Â of Bridgewater, died on Saturday 2/8 at the Brook Army Medical Center, as a result of wounds that he suffered in an IED attack while serving with the 8th Marines in Afganistan. LCpl Preach was a 2007 graduate of Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School.
And my hometown of Leominster has lost a soldier, in action, Â for the first time since 1970.
Pvt. Jonathan Roberge, 21, was one of four American Soldiers killed yesterday in Mosul, Iraq, when a suicide car bomb hit their patrol. Pvt Roberge was a 2005 graduate of the Center for Technical Education at Leominster High School.
My heart goes out to the families, friends, and fellow SoldiersÂ & Marines of LCpl Preach and Pvt Roberge.
Your sacrifices have not gone unnoticed.
