My Heart is heavy this morning. My cousin Sgt.Derek McConnell, a true American hero, who sacrificed both of his legs to an IED in Afghanistan and whose ups and downs and struggles in the months following his injury were documented by his loving mother Siobhan and his devoted fiancee Krystina passed away suddenly in his sleep due to his injuries yesterday. He was only 24 and had been making remakable progress up to that point. A big salute from this retired Air Force Master Sergeant.
