On this Memorial Day 2016, DowneastBlog honors one among many, PFC Paul E. Conlon. He was 21 when he fell in Afghanistan.

Via the MilitaryTimes:

"... of Somerville, Mass.; assigned to the 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Fort Campbell, Ky.; died Aug. 15 in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, when his vehicle struck an improvised explosive device and then received small-arms and rocket-propelled-grenade fire. Also killed was 1st Lt. Donald C. Carwile."

Let us thank Paul, and so many others, for bringing hope in a wretched part of the world through his sacrifice.

Pray for him and his loved ones. God bless.
