A former classmate, a hero
I went to school with two brothers, Scott and Lee Dimond. We played football together, had classes together, and were involved with the local fire department together. Lee Dimond died years ago, I believe of an accidental drowning. His brother, Scott, became a local police officer. I had no idea that he had enlisted in the military. He was recently killed in Afghanistan by an explosive device. It was in today's Citizen. I am saddened to read this, but proud of my old friend. Here is a link to a video of a British journalist report of the bombing. He was traveling with the truck that hit the explosive.
