Trojan Pride ... and Sadness

The Heismans and the national football championships mean nothing in comparison to the story of Army Staff Sgt. Joseph F. Curreri. The L.A. Times' USC blog All Things Trojan linked to Curreri's Nov. 4 obituary yesterday in honor of Veteran's Day. The entire obit is worth reading, but no part is better than the reference to his essay on why he decided to become a Green Beret:

"When my children ask me what I did to avenge the assault of September 11th, I shall be able to look them in the eye, without a hint of hesitation, and respond that I answered the call of our nation," he wrote.

Fight on, Joseph Curreri. Fight On.
