A Soldier's Commitment - Steve Reich

Because I have been privileged to know so many West Point athletes whom I am proud to call my friends, this story really grabbed me, and I wanted to share it with you. Steve Reich, in the tradition of Pat Tillman, was a gifted athlete who chose to serve his nation in time of war rather than pursue an athletic career. Steve piloted the Chinook CH-47 helicopter that went down last week in Afghanistan - killing all 17 aboard. He was married only three months ago.

Please left up his family in prayer and pray, as well, for all who continue to serve and for the families that support them.
