    This small NJ town IMO did a great job in honoring their fallen hero. To bad they all don't get such an honor. RIP SSG Nell, Jr.

    Flags flewat half-staff for several days last week, and Gov. Jon Corzine came to express condolences March 28 to the family of Staff Sgt.William R. Neil Jr., 38, at the wake for the fallen Green Beret.
    Neil, whose funeral took place Saturday, was killed March 22 near Sperwan Ghar, in the Kandahar Province, while serving with the U.S. Army in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.

    According to the U.S. Army Special Forces Command (Airborne), Neil died from wounds sustained when the vehicle hewas riding in struck an improvised explosive device while conducting a combat operation.
