This video was made by his son, who misses him very much…
It’s a weird world, I learned last night of the death of Brian Cowdrey, a US Army medic who as a matter of routine put his life on the line for not only his friends, but wounded enemies as well.
Today I saw the death of another during a televised race on ABC.
One guy’s death will probably go relatively unnoticed compared to the other man’s, Dan Wheldon won the Indy 500 twice, most recently this year. The other man, Brian Cowdrey quite possibly lost count of the number of lives he saved in battle in Afghanistan.
Both deaths left me feeling empty inside, yet I knew nothing of either man yesterday; I don’t follow racing and the Army is a big place.
I just hope somehow both can be remembered.
