A mission – Staff Sgt. Michael A. Bechert

Today we went to stand for SSgt. Michael A. Bechert.

Staff Sgt. Michael A. Bechert, 24, of New Castle, Ind., died on 14 June in San Antonio, Texas of wounds suffered when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device on May 30 in Baghdad, Iraq. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment, 2d Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Schweinfurt, Germany.

His family only asked us to stand at the entrance to the grave yard. It was our honor. Ssgnt Bechert was survived by his wife and his 20 month old son.

God bless and be with the family.

It's really great what you all do for these soldiers and their families. And it's nice that you memorialize them here, so we can hear their names and be grateful too.
