2ndDivisionVet has passed away
Vanity | 10/10/2019 | Vendome

Posted on 11/10/2019 9:33:59 AM PST by Vendome

I received word from 2ndDivisionVet wife that he passed away.

I am not using his real name here out of respect but, will ping his handle and his wife can if she would like.

I didn't ask what he died from but, knowing him for better than 10 years, I knew of medical conditions and a few terrible Operations he had.

He was a wonderful human being who cared deeply for his fellow Americans and the ideals that make this country so great that people the world over want to come here and be free, live in liberty and be whoever they want

If you have ever spoke with 2ndDivisionVet, you know he was quick witted and wry.

What had always amazed me about him was not just his humor but, his ability to somehow take life in stride despite all he endured and be cheerfull.

He was amazingly resourceful in scouring the web for article we might find interesting.

Yes, 2ndDivisionVet really cared about all of us and our presence in his life gave him purpose

I really wish God had let him stay but, my thoughts are more selfish than the absolute knowledge that he is in a better place.

I hope to see him again one day.

Rest in peace and smile down on us 2ndDivisionVet

Really surprised people are still commenting on that putz.../s

I really liked Fred and spoke with hom last, a few months ago, after diabetics cost him another body part yet, he was upbeat.

Freerepublic.com and his many friends here really gave him purpose.

He enjoyed being of service and really liked the thoughtful commentary.

He even appreciated some of our low brow banter.

Thx for remembering Fred...

Look up above a few posts and there are some that show his mug.

Not a bad looking guy...for a guy

I've had multiple pleasant interactions with him over the years, he will be missed! It's comforting to consider that all the volumes of words he's shared will live on forever in the Freerepublic archive. Centuries from now I can see historians delving into the logs of this forum to find out what was truly occurring in our time - since mainstream sources are hopelessly biased.

Rest in Peace. As an Army retiree and plus six year Korea veteran, I always enjoyed his posts and the articles which I was always interested in - we shared a bond although we never met.

11/20 I learned that 2ndDivisionVet passed away. Very sad.
11/10 Date when 2ndDivisionVet passed away.
11/03 Date of last post of 2ndDivisionVet

Personal story. I sent a private message to 2ndDivisionVet about four years ago about a work problem. He replied regularly over the next two weeks with a total of ten messages which were encouraging and very, very helpful.

Prayers for the Warrior.
