A Fallen Soldier Comes Home

Last night, in a thick, thick fog, Fernandina honored one of its own, Spc. Kelly Mixon, recently killed in Afghanistan.  A very large police motorcade brought him back to the island where locals lined the streets with candles, flashlights, iPhones and anything else that could put out a beam of light to honor his memory.  May his family, and all of our other military families find peace, particularly at this time of year.

Oh no, that is so sad.
I am glad that you honored him on your blog.
Prayers to the family!
