♥ Let Us Remember This Fallen Hero ♥

Let us pause for a moment of reflection as a motorcade will escort the remains of Spc. Aaron Aamot from Bellingham International Airport to Moles Funeral Home in Ferndale this afternoon.

Spc. Aaron S. Aamot, 22, of Custer, WA, died Nov. 5 in Jelewar, Afghanistan of wounds suffered when enemy forces attacked his vehicle with an improvised explosive device. Aamot was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division, Fort Lewis, Wash.

Govenor Chris Gregoire has ordered flags flown at half staff today in honor of Spc. Aaron Aamot. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aaron's family and friends.

Funeral services for Spc. Aaron Aamot will be held on Saturday, November 14, 2009, at 1:00 PM, in the Ferndale High School Gymnasium. The public is invited to attend. A graveside service will be held at Haynie Cemetery immediately following. Please see for additional information. Please keep Aaron’s family and all our warriors who are still in harm’s way and their families in prayer as well.
