We remember Nathan Aguirre, a young man killed in Iraq

Last week, I wrote about Nathan Aguirre, the young man from our church killed in Iraq. This is from the obituary:

"Spc. Aguirre, 21, died Sunday in Baghdad from injuries suffered when his patrol encountered enemy forces. He was an Army medic assigned to the 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division based at Fort Hood.

Spc. Aguirre blogged about his experiences in Iraq on his MySpage page. Since his death, his page on the social networking Web site has turned into an online memorial where friends and others have posted messages about him.

Spc. Aguirre was born in Dec. 11, 1984, in San Antonio. His family later moved to Carrollton, where Spc. Aguirre met his best friend, Joseph Posenecker, at a church gathering. Mr. Posenecker described Spc. Aguirre as a leader and a responsible person."

Nathan was a great young man. Please express your condolences to the Aguirre family.

Nathan's death reminds us that we live in a dangerous world. We are grateful that young men like Nathan are willing to serve their country.
