    I Lost a Friend.

    Phil and I had worked together for more than 20 years. When I was a Sgt. in the DOC, he was an officer, and later, when I promoted to Lt. and then Capt., he was still "just an officer." I worked with him in the seg. unit, and we often fought together, laughed together, and shared our lives. Though we were separated by the constraints of rank, we knew we could tell each other where the bear shit in the woods, and didn't have to be politically correct. I knew Phil had my back, and he knew I had his.Phil died yesterday. He had retired about 2 years ago, and was diagnosed with cancer of the esopogus in December. He went through all of the treatments and the operations, and then they found an inoperable brain tumor. I got a call yesterday that he was in the hospital and that life support was going to be removed. I went up, and Phil's wife, Cheryl, met me at ICU. She took me to his room, and my buddy was in a coma. I knew he didn't know I was there, but I held his hand and prayed for a swift journey for him.

    Officer Phil Adomovich was 56-years-old. He was a good friend, a good officer, and I will miss him.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    I am sorry to hear about your friend. I hope his family finds some peace in this bad time.

    I understand how you feel. Last year I lost a friend that I have known since the second grade in Northern Iraq. His dad and my dad were also good friends and they went to Vietnam together and got assigned at the same posts throughout their careers in the Army. Pete and I even joined the Army together, but he went on to continue his career in Special Forces like our dads. I stayed in the MP Corps. He was due to retire from the Army this year. I really miss him, but I stay in touch with his wife and kids still. I even went to high school with her too.
    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American G.I.
    One died for your soul, the other for your freedom. ~ Anon
