In Memory of PFC Jacob A. Dennis, 22, of Powder Springs, Georgia...

I did not know Pfc. Jacob A. Dennis, 22, of Powder Springs, Georgia.

But I am deeply saddened he is not here anymore. War on Terror News reports the following:

"Pfc. Jacob A. Dennis, 22, of Powder Springs, Ga., died July 3 at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Landstuhl, Germany, of injuries sustained June 30 in a weapons system accident at Forward Operating Base Lane, Afghanistan (Zabul province)."

I never knew the kid even existed. But I am from Powder Springs, Georgia. I have been a resident her for the past 19 years. And I have a son that is 23 years old, and a Step Son who is 21. All of these boys would have been in High School together. Hearing the death of PFC Dennis reminds me of how much anguish I would feel if one of my boys were gone. I do not know what I would do with myself...

My heart goes out to his family. I wish there were never wars where we have to send our children into harms way. As parents, we try so hard to protect them as they grow up. When they become adults, they are free to do and be as they wish.

I did not know you PFC Dennis, but I honor you and respect you for serving your country, and for protecting my rights to say what I feel, think what I want, and do as I wish...

May God Bless Your Soul Forever. Rest in Peace, My son...

    With the strength of the Lord Jesus Christ, who Jacob had trusted as his Savior, all of his family is able to go on living. Of course we miss him, but all those who have trusted Christ will see him again one day.

    I, too, cannot imagine the anguish of losing a son, but having lost Jacob, my nephew, I know for myself that God's sustaining grace is sufficient for all of my needs. In that, I believe that I speak accurately for the whole family.
