Sgt. Richard L. Ford
With a heavy heart, I report that Alex has lost another soldier from his unit. Sgt. Richard L. Ford was a friend to Alex and an integral part of his unit, the White Faclons. Alex will attend the memorial service tomorrow in Taji
, Iraq. Please read about this fallen, decorated hero. Gov. M. Jodi Rell Friday ordered U.S. and state of Connecticut flags to be lowered to half staff to honor Ford. Flags will remain at half-staff until Sgt. Ford has been interred.
