Wednesday's Hero: Major Mark E. Rosenberg

Today's Hero can be found at the site where Wednesday Hero was begun. I went to my regular 'Hero' site, but they do not have a new person up there yet. This man, however, can rightfully be considered our Hero of the week.

Maj. Mark E. Rosenberg 32 years old from Miami Lakes, Florida 3rd Battalion, 29th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division April 8, 2008 Mark Rosenberg grew up in South Florida. "All boy," his aunt, Madelyn Rosenberg, remembers. "Very active, but very lovable." As long as she can recall, Maj. Rosenberg wanted a military career like his father, Burton Rosenberg, had. He attended New Mexico Military Institute and entered the Army in 1996. Later, he met a woman, Julie, and they married one day after his sister's wedding. He and Julie had two boys, now 3 and 22 months. They settled in Colorado near Fort Carson, where he was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division. Maj. Rosenberg was on his second tour of duty when the Humvee he was riding in was struck by an IED in Baghdad. "He would say he's over there to do a job," Madelyn Rosenberg remembered. "He loved what he was doing."

These brave men and women sacrifice so much of their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died
We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
