Default Lost my Brother-in-Law and a patriot

I just needed to vent about a bad thing that happened to our family this past weekend. My Brother-in-Law Sgt. Ellis Brown was riding his Harley with a couple of soldier buddies of his and had wreck that caused multiple injuries that took his life at 43. He had given 24 years of military service. I considered him a brother, American hero, and protector of our family. He was divorced and raising 2 daughters he is leaving behind 3 altogether, 24, 21, and 13. My wife and I are taking in the 13yo.

I hope this doesn't make anyone mad, but I know there are a lot of patriotic guys on this forum and I didn't think anyone would mind if I vented for a bit.

Ellis giving my son his first salute.


His favorite tatoo


Ellis is on the right.

Sorry to hear of your loss. Glad to hear that the 13 yo will still be with family though. Thoughts and prayers go out for you and yours. I appreciate all the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces.

Well Curtis, that sucks. America lost a good man indeed... I love the tattoo's he had... a proud American Soldier. The kid's he leaves behind can always be proud... in memory of the man & American Soldier he will always be. I am really sorry about that. you are a good man for helping the 13yr old & seeing she will have support & love.

I believe there is a special welcoming when soldiers finally go home... in a place so much better than ours... the hard work, loyalty, selflessness, & love for their country... enduring anything that comes their way... I can't help but believe God has welcomed him home with the words: "well done, good & faithful servant"....

RIP Sgt Eliis Brown!! Semper fi & thanks for your hard work... WE ALL SALUTE YOU WITH SAD HEARTS ONE MORE TIME.
