Got back to my hotel after a wonderful time at the Dallas Tea Party only to read of a father’s heartbreak.
David M. Masters passed along devastating news on Twitter this evening that his son, Aaron, was one of two American soldiers killed by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan today.
America’s North Shore Journal has more details and notes:
The official announcement has not yet been released. It appears that Aaron was one of the two soldiers killed in a large Taliban attack on a base in Paktika. That is just a “maybe” until DoD releases the info. They hold it back a couple of days so that the families can all be notified.
NYT has background on the attack.
David M. Masters asked the Twittersphere to remember his son on this hallowed day:
The hashtag #thankyouaaron has been the #1 trending topic all night.
We will not forget your son, Mr. Masters.
From the Founding Fathers to our defenders on the front lines, the lesson resounds: Freedom is not free.
Thank you, Aaron.

Jen Psaki sent out to spin the Bergdahl debacle for Obama (Susan Rice is apparently indisposed for some reason)
