Much has been said and written about Staff Sgt. Matt Maupin, so I can add very little to the discussion here and to do so in a political blog would be inappropriate. His sacrifice has nothing to do with politics.
However, this blog gives me an opportunity to share some of what is happening in our community and nothing is more important this weekend than honoring this fallen hero. I hope everyone will take a minute and remember Matt Maupin and his family in your prayers.
