Lest We Forget

This is a story that really hit home with me. Personally, I get so wrapped up in College Football this time of year that I seem to ignore the truly important things going on. Words don't mean much at a time like this, but I'll say Thank You to all our Troops and their Families, especially the Knox family. These young men and women are the greatest of our generation.

From Deadspin:

You might remember back in June, when Deadspin reader Tom Knox sent us this picture of his brother Sgt. Adam Knox, of Whitehall, Ohio, spreading the Ohio State love in Iraq.

Well, some tragic news, reported to us from Tom: Sgt. Knox was killed in Iraq over the weekend when his patrol "came under fire from enemy forces." Sgt. Knox was a member of the Army Reserve 346th psychological Operations Company based in Columbus, and he had been deployed to Iraq in February. He was 21 years old.

Our deepest sympathies to Tom and the rest of the Knox family during this unfathomable time.

Here is a copy of another picture Tom sent Deadspin of his brother Adam:

Prayers, Thanks and Respect
