  1. Hi Ms Sparky!

    Thank you so much for the article on Kevin Davis, who was killed on December 25, 2010. Kevin is my nephew. I know the information you have is from DynaCorp, but I would also like to make mention that he served under a KBR contract previously in Iraq from October 2007, and had only been home for a brief stay before going back with DynaCorp. I would like that information to be acknowledged as well if at all possible.

    Ms. Sparky I would like to thank you for all you do in acknowledging these civillians hard at work and risking their lives to support our troops. Is there any more information you can provide as to the details as we are getting different information. Thank you for any assistance you can provide. You may email me privately at the email address provided. Sincerely, Kay Walk

  3. Kay – I am very sorry for your loss and send my condolences to you and Kevin’s entire family, friends and co-workers from Afghanistan.

    I was told Kevin was working as a Warehouseman for Dyncorp.

    I would like to cross post your comment on Kevin’s post at MsSparky.com as well.

    Again, my most sincere condolences.

  4. I have known Kevin since he was a very young man, he and my son were the same age; his mother is my best friend. The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do was to call her and express my condolences. Her Christmas(es) will never be the same. All she could say over and over is “my baby is gone”! I am hurt, I am angry that our young men and women are coming back in body bags…these overseas civilian contractors are just some of the unsung heros that put their lives in harms way along with our military. We must bring an end to this senseless war, many young men and women are going there because they can’t find employment here in the USA. Kevin and his siblings were and have always been her pride and joy through good times and bad. Mr. President are you listening???? sincerely, JLH
