Locke Tolstoy I confess I am almost stumped by whom to choose as the tenth figure. Benefactors who occur to me are the earliest figure whose law code survives practically in its entirety and BTW, a law code partly based on the mostly lost Urukagina statutes apparently: Again, this accomplishment stands as something worthy and pattern-setting -- to a degree. For some, the most profound utterance on the human condition is the Hindu text, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Thursday, February 28, To: The author's son is a serving SEAL. LB Chris Kyle, Patriotism and Texas February 12, I just wanted to share with you all that out of a horrible tragedy we were blessed by so many people. Chris was Derek's teammate through 10 years of training and battle.
They lost many friends. Chris became the armed services number 1 sniper of all time.
Not something he was happy about other than the fact that in doing so he saved a lot of American lives. He did and wrote the book The American Sniper. That was the guy Chris was.
He formed a company in Dallas to train military, police and I think firemen as far as protecting themselves in difficult situations.
He also formed a foundation to work with military people suffering from PTSD. Chris was a giver not a taker. He along with a friend and neighbor, Chad Littlefield, were murdered trying to help a young man that had served 6 months in Iraq and claiming to have PTSD.
Now I need to tell you about all of the blessings.
The employees donated buddy passes and one lady worked for 4 days without much of a break to see that it happened. Volunteers were at both airports in Dallas to drive them to the hotel.
I would guess there were about people staying at the hotel. Two large buses were chartered to transport people to the different events and they also had a few rent cars. The police and secret service were on duty 24 hours during the stay at our hotel.
It remained there the entire 5 days for the SEALs to congregate in and all to use the restroom so as not to have to go in the house.
Taya, their two small children and both sets of parents were staying in the home. Only a hand full of SEALs went into the home as they had different duties and meetings were held sometimes on an hourly basis.
It was a huge coordination of many different events and security. Derek was assigned to be a pall bearer, to escort Chris' body when it was transferred from Midlothian Funeral Home to Arlington Funeral Home and to be with Taya.
Taya seldom came out of her bedroom. The home was full with people from the church and other family members that would come each day to help.That war is a racket has been told us by many, but rarely by one of this stature. Though he died in , the highly decorated General Butler (two esteemed Medals of Honor) deserves to be heralded for his timeless message, which rings true today more than ever.
"Over the years I saw George at various weights: pounds in college, pounds when he returned to college after two years in the army, pounds after law school pounds after a six month stay at Duke in about and + pounds for the rest of his life. And what makes matters worse: this is still the 'best' of all holes and cracks in this roof in existence today.
All others are even more irregular and filled with reinforcement rods. Made in America since , Go-Kot's camping cots are durable, comfortable and highly portable.
Assembled in less than a minute and packed in a handy carrying bag, Go-Kot camping cots can go anywhere with you or be used as a spare bed.
