Major Andrew Olmsted and Captain Thomas Casey were both killed when we were ambushed. They both displayed tremendous courage under fire. I am proud to have served with them. They will be greatly missed. We were all blessed to have known them. They will always be my brothers in arms.Captain John Thompson

Glad you posted this. I had known about it yesterday morning and considered doing the same, but I couldn't find the words to introduce it. Even now, I still am awed by Major Olmsted's foresight and courage to write it and arrange for it to be posted in the event of his death.
Good journey, Major.
