Sad news

In April of 2004, a local soldier, Matt Maupin went missing in Iraq. He was in the Army. The rest of his troop was found, he was POW/MIA. No one in Cincinnati has ever given up the hope that Matt would return to his family safe and sound.

Today, we learned on the news that his body has been recovered. I can't imagine what his family is going through. His parents had such high hopes for a safe return for their son.

Keep the Maupin family in your prayers.

How sad. He is a true hero for giving his life to serve his country. I so feel for his family and friends. Makes you want to hold on to your kids tight.
