Remembering the Brave

Kevin Mowl Sunlight

Decisions are made and choices are had. People make bad ones and some make valiant ones. One of the good ones was when Kevin Mowl decided to join the United States Armed Forces and fight for his country in the US Army:

In November 2004, Kevin proudly graduated from basic training and committed the next four years to serving and protecting our country. Kevin packed his bags and joined his unit at Fort Lewis, WA. Since his deployment to Iraq in June 2006, Kevin has been patrolling with the Alpha Company, 2nd Batallion, 3rd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team. Kevin has held various positions including stryker driver, SAW gunner and radio telephone operator.

On August 2, 2007 an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle. In this blast, Kevin suffered multiple fractures to his face, arms, legs and back as well as a severe head injury.

It was early today that news came that at 10:13AM, Kevin passed away. It is always a sad time when someone passes on, but it can be said that Kevin did something brave, something noble, something to be commended for. He gave so others wouldn’t.

The deepest, heart felt wishes go out from Mr. & Mrs. MaoChan.

Hero. Soldier.
