MILITARY: Soldier didn’t make it to Veterans Day

How heartbreaking to see on Monday’s front page the small news item, “Bomb kills JBLM soldier in Afghanistan,” next to the story covering Veterans Day in the Capitol Rotunda.

First Sgt. Kenneth Wade Bennett, killed Saturday, missed Veterans Day by 24 hours or less. But we’ll remember him next May, on Memorial Day.
