    ‘Colockumelk’ is coming home

    When he saddled up to deploy to Afghanistan, former Selah resident Aaron Blanchard, known to his many friends on the Hunting-Washington forum as “Colockumelk,” posted a note on April 11 that noted, “Well it’s my turn once again to head over to the sand box and do the job that the tax payers pay me to do.”

    Sir, to your family, I am sorry for their loss, but from your Country, we all owe you a debt of honor and gratitude that cannot be repaid. We will carry on, your sacrifice will not be in vain.

    Courageous actions comes of selfless acts by those who care enough to do what others block from view.
    Rest in Peace in the meadows below the mountains Colockumelk.

    Let 'em blow let 'em blow
    Let the four winds blow
    Let 'em blow from east to west
    The US Army is the best

    Standing tall and looking good
    Should have been in Hollywood

    Hold your head and hold it high
    Captain Blanchard's marching by

    Close your eyes and hang your head
    Say a prayer for all the dead

    Let 'em blow let 'em blow
    Let the four winds blow
    Let 'em blow from east to west
    The US Army is the best


    Thank you Sir, and thank you to your family, whose sacrifice is greater than any of ours.
