    I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. He certainly earned a lot of honors and medals in fighting for freedom and keeping America safe. I cannot imagine your pain. My prayers are with you all and will continue. He will be with his fellow soldiers in Arlington. I weep every time I see pictures of it and Thank the Good Lord for all these blessed souls that laid down their lives for others. Remember the good times and know that he is resting safely in Jesus’ embrace. God Bless You All RIP MSG Jacops. May your family be comforted by Jesus’ love and peace.
