Andrew Olmsted, for me, was a blogger that I networked with, looked up to for interesting opinion, and found his outlook interesting and inspiring.
The Department of Defense announced today the death of two soldiers who were supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom. They died Jan. 3 in As Sadiyah, Iraq, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked their unit using small arms fire during combat operations. Both Soldiers were assigned to the Military Transition Team, 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan.
Maj. Andrew J. Olmsted, 37, of Colorado Springs, Colo.
Cpt. Thomas J. Casey, 32, of Albuquerque, N.M.

Here is his final post that was released by one of his close friends on the following three sites as his last wish.
Please use this as another way to respect those serving our country in the military.
Please pay attention to his last wishes and don't use this for political reasons among others.
