Emotional photograph, especially for those who serve

I came across this photo today and it hit pretty deep. We've had 50,000 plus casualties since 01 and the majority to IED's like the one that hit Kyle Hockenberry shown in this photo, but the effect of his sacrifice with the gripping words he chose to wear in ink holds a profound symbolic effect for me. You can read his story here http://nation.time.com/2011/09/28/no...becomes-truth/
and join in prayers with his family here http://www.facebook.com/groups/21768...p_r2j_approved
From what the article says he has a love for motorcycles and from pictures I've seen the Patriot Guard was at his bedside.

Godspeed your recovery warrior.
