Rest in Peace, Benny. You will be missed, my friend. I count it as one of the greatest privileges in my life to have known you. My heart is heavy as I grieve and struggle to understand this inexplicable tragedy and I pray that you have found peace.
To Benny's wife and children, and the rest of his family, I thank you for sharing Benny with us. My life and the lives of so many others were enriched by his presence and the world is a lesser place because he is gone.

The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war.
