The story of SSG. Keith Matthew Maupin

My husband attended a Memorial Day Ceremony in Memory of their Fallen Comrades last Thursday.He told me the story of Staff Sergeant Keith Mattew Maupin and I got really touched and saddened by his story.

Keith Matthew Maupin was born on July 13,1983 in Batavia,Ohio.After graduating High School,he enrolled in the University of Cincinnati Aerospace Engineering Program,he then joined the United States Army Reserved on 2002 and was stationed with the 705th Transportation Company in Dayton,Ohio.

While fulfilling his monthly obligations as a reservist,Maupin continued courses at the University of Cincinnati.In November 2003,Maupin was transfered to the recently mobilized 724th TC and arrived in Kuwait on February 20,2004.On March 5 the unit proceeded to Logistics Support Area in Iraq.On April 5,2004,Maupin's fuel convoy was ambushed and Maupin was captured by insurgents.Maupin's remains were recovered on March 20,2008 and returned to his family on April 27,2008.

After knowing this story,I can't help myself but worry for my husband although I am really proud of him because he is giving all his best for his country.To,Staff Sergeant Keith Mattew Maupin and his family,THANK YOU!!!

Thanks to all our strong and brave Military Men and Women and their family!!!God Bless Us ALL!!!
