Memorial For Fort Carson Soldier Killed In Afghanistan

A memorial service is being held on Fort Carson to honor the memory of a soldier killed by an IED in Afghanistan earlier this month.

SSG David P. Nowaczyk

Fort Carson's Soldiers Memorial Chapel is hosting a solemn service Wednesday. The memorial service is for Staff Sgt. David P. Nowaczyk, who was killed in action on April 15.

    We have those silly little rights because of soldiers like this one.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. He was a great man and will be missed. My most heart felt condolences to the family.

    It doesn't matter if we agree or disagree American troops should be there. A Soldier died serving our Great Nation and most likely left behind grieving loved ones. Rest in peace Staff Sergeant. We owe nothing less than our sincere respect for these brave men and women in uniform.

      The troops are there and it doesn't matter if we agree or disagree, does it? Here's to another ten years.

    I'm so sorry for the family's loss. This too could have been one of my friends. It's very dishearteneing to hear people talk about his dead like it's nothing. You will all be in my prayers, God bless.

    May you rest in peace SSG Nowaczyk. May God bless the family who are left behind to mourn today and in the coming months. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. My son is stationed in Afghanistan @ FOB Joyce and is also a member of the 2-12. God bless

    This seems really odd. Many spontaneous postings(more than usual) all expressing the hero and freedom rationalizations of the military industrial complex. No postings on the other news sites. Just this one.

    This man and all the men and women who have and still are serving our country deserve nothing but RESPECT! For the people who are bashing the war and the people who are serving in it, take a look in the mirror and ask yourself why you are able to wake up every morning. Many of you might think you know what goes on over there but, you never will untill you yourself are there, so, if you want to stop being cowards you can't put on a uniform, and fight this war alone! Send back my husband who is on his 5th deployment while you are at it!! RIP to ALL the men and women who fight for us and lose their life!!!

    Since I'm on fire, I have another point to bring up. Why wouldn't the family want to read the comments posted to this article? Many people find solace listening to and reading nice things people have to say about their lost loved ones. It allows them a chance to find some comfort in a desperate time of need. How dare you even put those negative comments on here and then you have the audacity to mock them for using this forum to find some relief and support. Regardless of your political beliefs, your lack of class and tact make you an embarassement to society.

    May god bless this amazing hero and his family. Despite your loss please remember you will never be alone.

    As for the pathetic nasty attitudes of those with clearly so much time on their hands that they can creep around and comment on articles about fallen soldiers get some morals and dignity and while you're at it post your name so people can know who you are, you coward! I hope there is never a draft for your sake because karma will get you, you selfish undeserving POS.
