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

RIP Dear 2ndDivisionVet. I have enjoyed your posts for many years and will miss your valuable commentary.

Vendome: I apologize for getting here late today. I've been on the road much of the day driving to NJ for the funeral of my very dear step-father, who passed away Thursday at 92. I just now got online and saw the sad news about 2ndDivisionVet. Geez. Thank you for conveying and getting the thread going.

Godspeed, FReeper 2ndDivisionVet. God welcomes you as we say farewell.

I unfortunately noticed a considerable drop-off in threads in the past week. Now we know why. :-(

2ndDivisionVet’s passing is indeed a loss to our country, Free Republic, and esp. all FReepers, but it is Heaven’s gain, too.

I did not know 2DV at all, other than through his posts, but I feel like I lost a friend, or, at least, a mentor.

Beyond that, I can only say “amen” to all the tributes and prayers above.

Oh man, of all the news to hear right before I hit the sack. 2ndDivisionVet was always so cheerful and, as you said, quick witted. I could always count on seeing him here.

God bless him, his wife, and Semper Fi Marine, we will indeed meet again on the other side, and I hope to be able to salute you in person!

He will be missed.
