Remembering our missing soldiers…

Monday, April 9, 2007 marks the three-year anniversary of the capture of Matt Maupin in Iraq by insurgents during the ambush of fuel trucks guarded by the 724th Transportation Company. Matt's parents Keith and Carolyn have been to Norwood several times for different events over the past years to remind us to keep Matt and the other missing solders in our thoughts and prayers. It is but by the grace of God that we in Norwood have not had this experience with the many young men and women that we have serving in the military. So we ask that you take some time on Monday to reflect on Matt, his family and those other men and women who serve with him.

If you would like to learn more about Matt, you can read this recent article in "The American Legion Magazine".
