    Good guys will be lost during routine, training, missions programs. I'm not trying to trivialize the other 8 good soldiers lost at Ft Hood. Its just this one was a Cadet. They are all equally important to each one of us.

    Take a moment today please. And try to put yourself in the eyes of his parents as they look into his room at home.....and listen to the silence.

    Cadet Winey touched a lot of people, some were friends and others are just learning who he was. Have heard that 45 WP cadets in uniform showed up at the airfield at 1am this morning to see him head home, saluting their friend & classmate along with the other 8 soldiers also lost in the accident. I'm sure it was an emotional and life changing experience for all involved.

    As a parent of a cadet, I know death is a possibility but nothing prepares us for this.

    Prayers go out to the families and friends of all involved.

    It's just tragic for his parents and sister. It's tragic for all that were lost and their families. Saturday is the funeral and I believe 50 Cadets will be there.

    That is 50 cadets who will be coming from West Point (CBT, CFT, SGR details). They will be riding a bus there and back, about 12 hours each way, to show their respect to their brother. I believe there will be others on leave who will make the trip on their own.

    As side note, thanks to WP and the USCC for allowing these cadets to have a short break from their details for such an important day.
