Hometown Wednesday Hero

I wrote a couple of days ago about the lady that my wife works with and her son who was killed in action. I saw the report in our local newspaper, and here is his obituary…

Sgt. Michael Christopher Hardegree, 21, of Villa Rica was killed in action Monday, Sept. 10, 2007, in Iraq while serving his country in the 82nd Airborne Division of the United States Army.
Funeral arrangements were incomplete and will be announced later by J. Collins Funeral Home & Cremation Service of Villa Rica.
A complete obituary will be published later.

Apparently it will be five to seven days before she gets his body back home. That’s actually much faster than I thought the Army could move, but I know this is just a terrible wait for his parents.
