Farewell to Two Oregon Soldiers

The events in Afghanistan this past weekend have resulted in the deaths of two soldiers from Oregon --- SSGT Robert J Paul and SGT Nathaniel "Brad" Lindsey.

While we were all paying tributes to those lost on September Eleventh, it was sobering to learn of two more deaths caused by terrorism. We take the loss of all soldiers quite personally, but it is especially difficult to loose those whom we feel bonded to by statehood.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families, friends and their units at this difficult time of loss. We will ever be grateful for the sacrifices they made to protect us and keep us safe and free.

Please read the tributes below to each of them.
