MIA No Longer
Farewell, and Walk with God, Matt

Maupin was a 20-year-old private first class when he was captured on April 9, 2004, west of Baghdad. A month later, he was promoted to the rank of specialist, and later to sergeant.
Nearly four years after his capture, his remains have been identified.

i still don't know why we have to be the better people. i think we should just go in and kill all those bastards.
war is messy. innocents do die. just like our people on sep 11th.
our government needs to let us loose.
you can't win a war with your hands tied behind your back.
