Read this article (UPDATE: This Rocky Mountain News report has more detail) about the death of U.S. Army Capt. Thomas J. Casey killed in action along with Maj. Andrew J. Olmsted in Iraq. Andy Olmsted was a well known milblogger who left a final message to be posted in case of his death. Many readers of Andy’s posts at Obsidian Wings and other blogs wanted to know how they could help the family. Today hilzoy at Obsidian Wings posted this request:
A member of Andy Olmsted’s family has just written me to say that if people want to do something in honor of him, they can send donations to a fund that has been set up for the four children of CPT Thomas Casey, who served under Andy and was killed while trying to help him. The address is here:
Capt. Thomas Casey Children’s fund
P.O. Box 1306
Chester, CA 96020
Please give. I will.
