Andrew Olmsted, a major in the Army who blogged for the Rocky Mountain News, was killed this week in Iraq. Olmsted’s final post, written in case he was killed in action and titled “Final Post,” was posted by a friend.
“His voice was a voice of reason, and was a voice of logic,” Olmsted’s father, Wesley, told the Boston Globe. “He would discuss issues only to make people think.”
My deepest sympathies go out to his family and friends – and to the rest of us, for losing somebody like him.
