Day 32 - Honoring SPC Robert Allen McNail


Internet connections were suspended the last several days out of respect for the family of SPC Robert Allen McNail, who served as a member of Bravo Company, 150th Engineer Batallion.

The McCormicks join other members of the 150th sharing our prayers for the families of SPC McNail and SFC Cooley, two soldiers who gave their ultimate sacrifice last week.
