I will be attending the funeral Sat. in Pflugerville. The soldier killed name is CPL Yari Mokri there was also 4 others killed in that attack the so far is the deadliest day for 3rd Brg deployed from Hawaii. Pray all of them now the morale is pretty low especially tomorrow because he and his friends are attending a memorial there for him. Thanks Cindy
This is a comment on my last post from Krista. She is an Army wife, and the sister of my nephew’s fiancee. Her husband who is stationed in Hawaii, is currently in Iraq. He was home recently on leave. Yari Mokri was one of his buddies.
