January 10, 2008 ·  Major Andrew Olmsted wrote a "final post" to be included on his blog if he died in Iraq. Last week he was killed by a sniper and the entry was posted online, drawing extensive commentary.

That was pretty depressing. But enlightening I suppose. Seemed like a genuinely decent guy, and you can't really argue with any of his points.... apart from the fact that he liked babylon 5 waaaaaaay too much.  R.I.P

Well i did a search for Olmsted with no hits so if they would have spelled his name right this would not be here.

At least he had a sense of humor about his own mortality.  I have to agree with most of his sentiments.  My condolences to friends and family.  RIP.

I haven't really ever cried about anyone else's stuff, only my own demons. This is, quite honestly, the first time in a long time that I had felt myself tearing up a bit. Sharing the first same name might have contributed to it a bit though.

RIP

He died trying to protect the scumbag insurgents from dying...telling them to surrender... and was killed by a sniper... If they had just killed the insurgents he would be alive... very sad

I played both Freedom isn't Free, and American Soldier while reading that.  It was most profound, and depressing, but always with a trace of humour.  Sounds like a real good man, and he will be missed.

Rest in Peace Major.
