America has lost David in body, but his spirit and the spirit of the other 119 soldiers resonates deeply with me. These are the kind of soldiers I'm thinking of when people ask me how morale is, and I say, I can't explain it, but despite the extreme pressures of multiple deployments, our combat soldiers' morale remains high. David and his comrades had done their duty. They knew the risks. And they still volunteered to return to combat. These are the kind of men and women I most like to be around and write about. I did not know David personally, but reading about him, I feel as if I know him well. The South Carolina National Guard must be some unit to have soldiers like David Leimbach, and 119 others who keep on keeping on.
David will be laid to rest in South Carolina on Monday. Please click here for more information. www.EngleFoundation.org
My condolences to the family of this Great American, and to his fellow soldiers in the South Carolina National Guard. David was lost facing down those who would do us harm. His courage and loyalty are an inspiration to us all.
