A friend of mine at FOB Alamo has died recently. He was a young sailor nearing the end of his tour. I remember talking to him the night before he was taken from our FOB to a medical facility. He said he wasn’t really feeling good; something fairly common in such unclean conditions. The next morning he went to get checked out because he still was sick, and was soon evacuated for medical care. Only a few days later, we learn that our friend and brother-in-arms has passed away. Darren was one of the youngest kids on the FOB and always full of energy and in good spirits. He was like everyone’s little brother on the FOB. He will be sorely missed. Please keep his family and friends back home in your prayers.
Rest in peace, Brother.
