A Fallen Soldier
I just received word that a friend of mine, Jeffery McKinney, died in Iraq last week. What made it so shocking is that Will sent me an email and I was so stoked that he contacted me, it was a big let down to hear that his team leader from Eco 51st INF died last week.
1st Sgt. Jeffery McKinney, or as I knew him, Ranger Mac was a good man, a great soldier, and one of the funniest guys I knew. He will be missed and the Army has lost an asset.
I’ve been racking my brain, trying to remember a funny story involving Ranger Mac. My room mate, Expletive Delph (and also B-Cack), was on his team and I always remember that Expletive Delph would blame me for everything wrong in our room. I did the same to him though, so it always seemed to work out. I plan on making some phone calls tonight hoping to jog my memory so I can update this post with a good story.
RIP Range Mac
