Yes, there is still a war on. A son of the City Manager for Olmos Park died from his injuries in a bomb blast. SSGT Michael H. Simpson died from injuries from an IED while riding an ATV. SSGT Simpson was the son of Michael W. Simpson, the City Manager for Olmos Park, Texas. Michael W. Simpson is retired from the U.S. Army. SSGT Simpson had a wife and two young sons and was posted to Ft. Lewis, Washington. He had only been in the war zone two weeks when he was injured. See San Antonio Express news report.
It has been several months since I mentioned the name of a deceased soldier with a connection to San Antonio. But, yes, the war still continues and Americans are still risking their lives for us here at home.
