Lance Cpl. Abraham Simpson, 19, of Chino, was killed Tuesday, according to the Pentagon. Simpson was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Pendleton. 9 November 2004 He was a close friend of my brothers. My brother and him went through Boyscouts together. Not that Abraham is a special case or anything, but it just hits very close to home when it is someone you know. My thoughts and prayers go out each and every night to the families and loved ones of those who have fallen in war.
