Death of SSGT Frost

I have just learned that SSGT. Christopher Frost has died in a helicopter crash, along with 7 Iraqis. Frost and I became aquainted through a mutual love of photography, and shared a strong desire to serve our country. Though I did not know him well, we were at most aquaintances, I knew him well enough to feel his loss. I He was 24 years old and had only 1 month of his deployment left. My prayers are with his friends and family, and with those of the 7 Iraqis who died with him.

His photos, and a small deployment diary can be found here:

Sorry to hear that. There's something particularly cruel to me about a soldier dying in an accident while in a war zone. I've no doubt it makes no difference to a family contemplating an empty chair at their table.
