  1. My heart hurts for this young brave man and his family. My son called and is part of this team and was very upset about his brother Matt. This war makes no sense and these men are not wanted there and they need to come home. The Afghanis can fight their own battles. President Obama said he would bring home the troops if he was elected. That was 4 years ago. These stories beed to be front and center. This pain goes on each day and now this fine young man will be remembered as a hero. I am so sorry Kantor family.
