    Posting a memorial for my nephew Daren who just recently lost his life in Afghanistan.

    ‎1st Lt. Daren M. Hidalgo, 24, of Waukesha, Wis., died Feb. 20 in Kandahar province, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit using an improvised explosive device. He was assigned to 3rd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, Vilseck, Germany.

    Sincere condolences to his family and brothers and sisters in arms.

    sorry to hear, another hero who paid the ultimate price for all of us.

    Brian, Sincerest respects. I keep a "Memorial" page on my site for local service members who have lost their lives in GWOT. It's important to keep tha' SHEEPLE informed that our men and women/ sons, daughters and nephews are still out there standin' tha' line. Their attention spans are way too short. God, bless Lt. Hidalgo. Take care, man.

    Sorry for your loss, I just returned from Afghanistan a few months ago. I was the lead JTAC supporting 3/2 SCR for the first half of their rotation in Maiwand. I didn't personally know your nephew, but I can say that he was part of a first rate unit and he will be deeply missed.

    Thank you gentlemen. I never really visited the memorial wall much.
    Until it happens to you, you know.

    The thoughts are appreciated.
