On July 10 I attended a remembrance ceremony for US Army Ranger Specialist Joey Dimock, who lost his life on July 10, 2010 in Afghanistan. It was very moving to hear from his family and to speak with the friends and neighbors who knew him so well. It was clear that Joey lived his life to the fullest! I was honored to have been there to remember him. I also want to thank Wildwood Boy Scout troop 672, who tend to his memorial stone so well.
