HOO-RAH for a quiet hero (and the Strib)

The Star Tribune this morning interrupted its usual effluent of bad news and body counts from Iraq to bring you this awesome, humbling, and inspiring story of twice-decorated Purple Heart recipient Sgt. Christopher Holbrook, United States Army ("Minnesota soldier enlists for a new cause," by Joy Powell), and how one group of Minnesotans is responding.

Stories like this help us civilians to understand how much our troops are sacrificing to keep us safe, secure, and free.
