On this Memorial Day I think it’s worth remembering one of our fallen, Major Douglas E. Sloan, whose headstone appeared on today’s Drudge Report. Major Sloan is interred in Arlington Cemetery.
According to ArlingtonCemetery.net, Major Sloan was killed on October 31, 2006 near Wygal Valley Afghanistan when the convoy he was riding in was hit by an IED. Sloan was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, New York. Sloan, a father of four, was survived by his parents Wendy and Emory Sloan, a retired VA administrator.
His 8 year old son Dylan said of his father, “”He always had a smile on his face. He liked playing with me.”
